Prom Pictures and Strawberry Angel Food Cake Dessert

Wow what a busy and fun weekend! 
Saturday was my daughter Madison's high school prom.
I normally only post recipes, but she looked so beautiful, this proud mom had to share :)

We hardly ever get our photo taken together since I am always the one with the camera, but I made sure I got one this time, especially since I was dressed up too for a wedding.

I wasn't home enough to do too much cooking or baking this weekend, but I did manage to whip up this cool, refreshing dessert.  It was perfect for our pool party on Memorial Day.  Hope your weekend was great too!

Strawberry Angel Food Cake Dessert

1 Angel Food Cake (I used a Duncan Hines box mix I made the day before)
1 box Strawberry Jell-O (6 oz.)
2 cups hot boiling water
1 lb. frozen, sliced strawberries in juice, partially thawed
1 cup cold water
1 container Cool Whip (8 oz)

Tear angel food cake into bite size pieces and cover the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch glass bake dish.
Stir jell-o with boiling water until completely mixed, then add the cold water.
Add the strawberries, breaking up any that might still be frozen together.
Pour over the angel food cake.  Using the back of a spoon, gently push down the cake until all pieces have soaked up some of the jell-o.  Refrigerate until jell-o completely sets.
Slice into squares and serve with cool whip.
Enjoy :)


  1. Lovely photos. They deserve to be posted. Food is great, but family is always better.

  2. Great pics! Thanks for the wine reviews. I am just learning about wines so this really helps. The sangria recipe sounds yummy. I will definitely try it. Thanks again!
