Strawberry Cheescake Trifle

We were stationed in Guam for two LOOOONG years. What I did enjoy of it was the friends I made and the recipes I collected. This one was given to me by my friend Danielle. When I tasted it I had to have it!!!

So yeah, the pound cake is from my previous post which I made mainly to make this Trifle. I even went and picked the strawberries from a local farm

Strawberry Cheesecake Trifle

2 pints fresh strawberries, sliced            
1 c. sugar, divided
2 8oz. pkgs, cream cheese, softened     
3 tbs. orange juice
3 c, whipping cream, whipped
1 loaf 10 3/4oz. frozen pound cake. I used my homemade,
   cut into 1/2in. cubes.

In bowl, toss strawberries with 1/2 c. sugar; set aside. In another bowl beat cream cheese, O.J.
and remaining sugar until smooth. Fold in whipped cream. Drain strawberries set berries aside.
Place 1/2 cake in trifle dish or serving bowl. Top w/ 1/3 cheese mixture, 1/2 strawberries.
Repeat layers, cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hrs.

When using frozen strawberries just thaw and drain. ENJOY!!!

Ernest "my honey" gets excited when I make grannys POUND CAKE!!!! I have to save him a little batter in the bowl too.

CrockPot Mac n Cheese

Ok so this is one of my recipes for mac n cheese. I have another that I do in the oven that is creamier but this is just as good. It frees up my oven and the CrockPot keeps it warm for a long period of time.

1 lb. Elbow Macaroni
1 lb. Extra sharp cheese
1 can evaporated milk
2 cups milk
2 eggs beaten
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. ground yellow mustard

I boil my noodles about 7min. because they will finish cooking in the crock pot.
Place noodles and all other ingredients in crock pot and cook about 2 hours.
I know its so easy but that's why I love it. Enjoy!!!

first desert 7 April 11

Caramel-Banana Ravioli

2 firm medium bananas
3 rolls (1.7oz. ea.) milk
chocolate-covered chewy
caramels, unwrapped
(24 pieces total)
2 pkg. (8oz. each) refrigerated
crescent rolls.
1 tbsp sugar
1/3 cup caramel sauce

Preheat oven to 400*F. Lightly brush cookie sheet with oil. Slice bananas diagonally into twenty-four
1/4-inch-thick slices. Cut caramels in half.
Unroll one package of dough onto bottom of pan, gently shaping to form a rectangle. (do not stretch)
Dough may not cover entire bottom of pan. Arrange banana slices over the dough in four rows
of six each, spacing 3/4in. apart. Top each banana slice with two caramel halves. Unroll remaining
dough directly over filling, matching edges and shaping to fit. Press around filling to seal; pinch
together any tears.
Using pizza cutter trim and discard edges of dough; cut into 24 ravioli. Separate and space them over pan.
Sprinkle sugar over ravioli.
Bake 10-12min. @ 400*F
Cool 2min. Drizzle with caramel sauce.

So I just made this for the first time. Hint- make sure the dough is good and cold.
Also I used rolo's and found them in a bag and they were tiny so I didn't
even have to cut them in half.

Hope you enjoy this one it is so good!!!
