12 Days of Christmas 2017, Day 3: [Recipe] Cranberry Orange Fluff

On the list of things I don’t get sick of during the holidays – fruitcake, a cup of tea, jammie days, tins of chocolate creams, fresh snow, and anything cranberry orange.

This “salad” is a really nice light dessert that can be served after a heavy meal, or a delicious treat to have waiting in the fridge for a Christmas morning accompaniment to gift opening.

12 Days of Christmas 2015, Day 12: [Recipe] Ambrosia

ambrosia

The 12th Frilly Day of Christmas is HERE!

I hadn’t forgotten about the last day of this year’s Christmas countdown, and I even had the post ready to publish, but I thought it might be nice to save this one until you’re able to give it the attention it’s due.

This ambrosia recipe is definitely one of my favourite recipes. It’s the only recipe I requested we have at my baby shower, other than finger sandwiches. It has a wonderful, light, tropical feel. This is my mama’s recipe, and I’m happy to be able to share it.

Every year we have Christmas dinner as a family at my nana’s house with my dad’s siblings and their families. It’s my responsibility to bring dessert for the dinner. This, along with a trifle, is one of the desserts I brought this year. Everyone loved it.

[Recipe] Pistachio Whip

pistachio cover 3

I still remember when I first tasted this recipe. My best friend Kyla introduced me to it, waaaaaay back when we were in high school. She brought it to a potluck we were going to, and I just had to know how to make it. I LOVE this stuff. I would sit down and eat the entire bowl of this stuff, if no one were watching.

This recipe is a great recipe for dessert if you’re looking for something really quick and easy to whip up.

Whip up. See what I did there? 😉

Four ingredients. Nice and light. Sweet and fruity. Delicious. Dessert salad. That’s what this recipe is.
