Kraft's Food & Family Magazine
OK...OK...I know it's KRAFT, but I really enjoy receiving this little magazine. They come up with amazing and creative things to do with their products, that not only are tasty....but quick and easy to make. Even quicker and easier to chow down on, too.
The newest edition has these amazing looking "chilled desserts" that are just making me drool all over the place. It has been hot here in SoCal. I thought these Frozen Peach Shortcake Squares look fun. It combines some of my favorite "summer comfort" foods...pound cake...jello....raspberries...and, I'll admit it...and don't tell anyone, but I have secret cravings for Cool Whip. (I know...me bad.)
