Here are a few recipes that I pulled up on the search that members have posted in the past. I haven't made one myself because we don't eat too many sweets, but these might help.

Hey Dave! Welcome to our family! We're getting quite a brood of young kids here - how cool is that?!
As you can see, we are a very helpful bunch. If there's anything you want to learn to prepare, just go to that forum and ask away. So, who inspired you to start cooking? Was it a relative or TV chef? or, just a really great meal?

Anyhow, we're really glad you're here!

Here's a quick and easy

Strawberry Yum

16 oz strawberries - frozen or fresh; cut up
1 tub Dreamwhip
1 small package strawberry Jello
2 Tb lemon juice
1 Angelfood Cake cut in cubes or torn into bite size pieces.

Thaw the strawberries if frozen - if they weren't frozen w/sugar add some sugar and allow to drain reserve liquid. If fresh, sprinkle w/ sugar and allow to sit about 20 minutes then drain reserving the liquid.

To the Jello add 1 C hot water to desolve. Combine reserved strawberry liquid + lemon juice + water to make 1 cup, add to the Jello. Chill until nearly set but still stirrable.

Mix the Angelfood cake, strawberries, Jello and DreamWhip - do not overmix.

Serve!
