Here are 2 very easy to make but delicious recipes, one from my Mom and the other from my MiL. My Mom's homemade Strawberry Ices are perfect for a hot summer day!
3-4 cups strawberries (fresh/frozen)
3 tbsp. lemon juice
1 cup sugar
1 cup orange juice(with pulp)
Blend 1/2 the strawberries and the remaining ingredients in a blender until smooth. Stir in remaining berries. Freeze for 3 hours min. Break up in chunks, then blend again until smooth. Refreeze. Slightly defrost to serve. I use a metal cake pan to make this. In a rush, I have skipped the 2nd refreeze and nobody but me noticed.
1 can cherry pie filling
1 16 or 20 oz. can crushed pineapple
1 box yellow cake mix
1 cup chopped pecans
1 stick butter or marg. sliced over top
Mix all ingredients in a 12 x 9 pan. Bake at 350 for 1 hr. to 1 hr. 15 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream
