Fresh sliced Strawberries piled onto a Light Angel Food Cake... Did anyone say Delicious Easy Desserts! How about serving the Favorite in Dessert Recipes with a Creamy Pina Colada or a Fantastic Coffee Drink... Fantastic!

One excellent choice in Dessert Recipes would have to be the Strawberry Shortcake With Strawberry Sauce and Whipped Cream Piled onto A Light Angel Food Cake is one winning favorite in Easy Desserts.

This has got to be one of my favorites in Dessert Recipes to make and serve up to those smiling faces. I know that traditional Strawberry Shortcake is made with a biscuit or pound cake, but I find that the Angel Food Cake is a nice change and not so heavy on the tummy after a wonderful Meal. I have also made this recipe with the Frozen Strawberries instead of the fresh but I learned the hard way that that Fresh Strawberries is the best when making up a perfect Strawberry Sauce.

For a dinner menu, I like to serve up the Glazed Baked Ham with Pineapple and Mustard Sauce. For great pick in side dish recipes, how about one of the fantastic Salad Recipes.
