Question of the Day:

What was the best dessert that your mom/dad ever made?

    Hmmm I am trying to think and I don’t have an answer to this question. My family was never big on desserts. Neither am I so I guess that explains it. My childhood memories are of BBQing a lot and eating fish, turtle, squirrel, rabbit, quail, and deer….YUCK! The only dessert I remember my mom making was something called divinity that was supposed to be a big deal but I didn’t think it tasted that great. My Grandma Vi made the most awesome fudge with walnuts in it. I remember because we had a walnut tree and we had to gather, crack, and pick the nuts each year to give to her in time to make her Christmas fudge. She also made me peach cobbler for my birthday…I miss grandma. Maybe my girls and I will try to do fudge for Christmas, we will buy the nuts though.

    I haven’t gotten the swine flu, but my niece did. They caught it very early so she didn’t have a really bad case of it, but she was quarantined to her room and nearly died of boredom. A week is a really long time for a 12 year old girl to be isolated from everyone else.
    My mom makes coconut cream pie, and I like that a lot. I don’t think it’s my favorite dessert (I don’t think I have a favorite!), But I like it a lot because not many people make it.

    My mom and dad were not dessert makers, but my Grandma sure as hell is, and my favorite is her strawberry rhubarb pie. NOM.

    My mom was great at making desserts. She was best at cakes, cookies, brownies, and fudge. She would make cream puffs too. Those were probably my favorite! She’d make the cream puffs and then make homeade vanilla pudding to go on the inside and then whipped cream and powdered sugar on top. Yummy! Her divinity (as well as mine) never turned out so well…more like icing than candy. My aunt Verda makes the best divinity. I’m sure I’ll try to make it again once Nick is older, but like my mom I should probably stay away from the candy and stick to the pastries.

    my mom makes an awesome new york style cheese cake (with the sourcream/sugar coating on top, and banana split cake (it’s every bit as decadent as it sounds). I make the banana split cake every year when i go to my dad’s holiday meals, and it’s a hit!
    it’s not actually cake, it’s a graham cracker crust with powdered sugar and butter, and maybe eggs? blended together, then layers of pinapple and banana topped with cool whip, cherries, and pecans. it’s amazing!
