Strawberry ShortcakeBy VivI think this is Grandma Peterson's recipe so it is over 100 years old. This is the best strawberry shortcake recipe, it is so flavorful and moist and is so easy to make! Top with real whipped cream and fresh strawberries crushed with a potato masher and sweetened with a little sugar. You can double this recipe and bake it in a 9" round pan and layer it with whipped cream and strawberries if you want an extra special cake.
Swedish Heirloom BarsBy VivThese taste like thin cinnamon butter cookies. You can top them with any nut you wish...I use pecans. They are addictive.

Hershey Bar Cake with Cream Cheese FrostingBy VivThis is Hud’s favorite cake and we have this every year for his birthday. In all honesty, we all look forward to this cake as much as he does. It is moist and dense and baked in an angel food cake pan. The cake is frosted with cream cheese frosting and served with vanilla ice cream. It rises high and then falls so sometimes the shape can be a little unpredictable, but who cares!
