Great Dessert

I served these for Thanksgiving and my family loved them, and they are very easy to fix. We loved them.

Oh My Gosh!

I thought I was in heaven, this was so good! Everyone in the family loved them, I'm making them again and taking them to Dad's for Labor Day Weekend.

The first time I made theese, my family devoured them. I know make them every time my sister comes home to visit from college, as a small present to take back with her. Her roomates enjoy them too!

Oh So Good!!

Raspberry and semi-sweet chocolate - a winning combination at our home. Easy to make, and if you are short on time, the bottom layer can be baked one day, and the remaining layers the next.

Chocolate Walnut Jam Bars

This was such a simple recipe and that's just what I needed the day I made them. And fast! I added just a sprinkle of coconut on the top and this one was a hit! Everyone enjoyed and asked for the recipe! Thanks.
