  • This is my gramma's recipe and my absolute favorite dessert ... Orange Delight

    Crust
    Crush 1 sleeve Ritz (don't use generic, it isn't as good)
    1 stick melted butter
    1/4 c sugar
    Mix these together and put on bottom of 9x13 casserole dish


    Filling
    6 oz of orange juice concentrate, thawed
    1 can of condensed milk
    8 oz Cool Whip (use real Cool Whip, generic stuff never holds the fluff)
    1 large can of mandarin oranges, drained
    Mix OJ and condensed milk with a spatula. Then fold in cool whip. Add oranges. You can add all the oranges or save half to lay on top. Do not beat this mix with mixers. Pour over crust and either refrigerate or freeze.

    Next time I make this I am going to try to mix it up a bit. Maybe use a pineapple juice with pineapples. But this has always went over well where ever I have taken it. It is very sweet and delicious!!

  • we're going to a cookout and there's two things I'm taking - a dessert and an appetizer. The dessert is called Pink Dessert - all it has is one tub coolwhip, one can cherry pie filling, one can crushed pineapple (drained), crushed walnuts, mini marshmallows, maybe some sliced banana - I inhaled that stuff as a kid!
    The appetizers are something I thought of but didn't try before, so of course I'm gonna test it out on my drunk friends - skewers of turkey meatballs, pineapple chunks, and a marashino cherry on the end, I'm cooking the turkey meatballs first, then skewering the whole shebang and grilling it over charcoal with sweet and sour or maybe BBQ sauce. just 2 meatballs, 2 pineapple chunks, and 1 cherry on each (small skewers).
    I'll get everything at aldi's for like ten bucks for both dishes :-)
