Sweet Treats!

Morning. I’ve been feeling under the weather for the last couple of days, and there’s not going to be any stamping here again today. I got Jeanne to the airport yesterday for her flight home, and then had breakfast with my sister, mom and some of mom’s close friends. By the time I got home I was totally worn out. Any hoo, I drugged myself up, crashed on the couch and finally around 8:00 last night went to bed. I think it’s going to be another day just like that today!

What I’ve decided to do today is share some recipes with you. This goes back to the Lizzie Anne Blog Candy post about your favorite summertime desserts. I finally got that recipe from mom for the Banana Split Cake, along with a few others.

BANANA SPLIT CAKE

Melt 1 stick of margarine in a 9 x 13″ cake pan. Blend in 2 cups of graham-cracker crumbs, and pat evenly over the bottom. In a mixing bowl, beat at high speed for 15 minutes 2 sticks of softened margarine, 2 eggs, and 2 cups confectioners’ sugar. Carefully spread this blend over the crust. Slice bananas (about 3 large ones) until you’ve a layer covering the filling. Next, drain 1 large can of crushed pineapple, and spread fruit on top. Over all, make a layer of Cool Whip (one large container will do it). Last, sprinkle on 1 cup of coarsely chopped nuts and several well-placed maraschino cherries. Cover with waxed paper and leave in fridge for several hours or overnight.

This next salad, we had at my niece’s graduation party. My stepsister made it and of course we all had to have the recipe! Mallory is planning on taking this one to a party this weekend.

BROCCOLI STRAWBERRY SALAD

4 cups chopped broccoli bite size
1/4 cup Golden Raisins
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/3 cup shredded carrots
1 cup sliced strawberries 1/4″ thick, 3 slices each berry
1/4 cup salted peanuts

Dressing:
3/4 cup mayonnaise
½ cup powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons white vinegar

Whisk till fluffy
Toss with hands into salad.

Hope you guys enjoy these treats! Have a great day!

  1. hmmm, broccoli and strawberries? Not a combination I would have pictured together. I think that may have a bit too many veggies in it for my family. (wink) But the banana split cake sounds super yummy! Thanks for sharing! And feel better!

  2. This broccoli strawberry salad is awesome. There is so many different flavors and textures. It is just all that!!!!!!!!

    Sorry you’re not feeling well Sherry. Get better soon and stay in bed!

  6. Sorry to hear you are feeling under the weather. Thanks for posting the recipes. Both sound yummy! I’ve been trying different broccoli salad recipes lately, and haven’t found the perfect one yet. Will have to try this one!

  7. Get your rest, Sherry and get well soon! By the way, how is your little dog doing? Gigi

  8. Wow, if its not Shelley its you! Try drinking hot stuff. I am a tea drinker & Jasemine tea is my ultimate favorite. It won’t cure you but it sure helps keep the head open. Get plenty of rest and the rest will take care of itself. Sorry you’re feeling bad.

  9. Wonder what happened to my morning “cuppa”. Sorry to hear that you are under the weather…
    Thanks for the recipes….have to admit that the broc and strawberry one had me raise an eyebrow, but will have to give it a try sometime (since I’m always telling my kids “how will you know if you do/don’t like something if you won’t even TRY it?!!)
    Rest up….I might go thru some serious withdrawls if you don’t get well soon!

  10. hi sherry,
    hope you are feeling better – just wanted to send you a little message filled with good wishes and cheer! best wishes from iowa,
    Sankari
