In Memory of her Daughter
i am Italian and we don't write down recipes...we sort of fly by the seat of our pants when cooking and
try to remember how my grandma's used to cook and how my mom used to cook....the traditional dishes for the holidays are learned
by watching and then doing them....some times we added more salt and pepper and at other times more garlic or onion...according
to how the dish tastes and there are a lot of special things that Stacey liked that are just not your everyday dishes...any
way....I love the idea...one of her favorite desserts.....holiday time only
Ambrosia of the Gods dessert
1/2 qt heavy cream
bag of small marshmallows
can of crushed pineapple
can of mandarin oranges
whip cream, drain crushed pineapple and mandarin oranges, stir in small marshmallows, stir in drained
crushed pineapple and mandarin oranges into cream and marshmallows, if you want the shredded coconut add now also,,,,let
set in refrigerator for a few hours or even overnight....serve cold and keep it cold....
