I've been a mom for 29 years, but with 10 kids and six grandchildren, I'm still learning as I go! I've got hundreds of articles on common sense motherhood, spiritual inspiration, practical homemaking, and more. All the answers? No way! Something to think about? I hope so! Join me! (P.S. This blog is formerly known as "Come, Weary Moms." Many of the links to previous posts will take you to this old blog. Thanks for your patience!)
Two Trifles: Chocolate Strawberry and Caramel Apple
Easter dinner calls for a special dessert! This year, I decided to make two trifles. A trifle is made from layering chunks or cake with sauces, whipped cream, and other yummy ingredients -- in our case one with chocolate strawberry and the other caramel apple.
The J on top is for Julia, one of our married daughters,
who would be turning 23 in a few days.
I borrowed this trifle bowl from her.
It could also have been for Jesus, since we were celebrating his resurrection.
Caramel Apple Trifle: Homemade apple pie filling (sliced apples baked with apple juice, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger and other spices), chunks of yellow cake, caramel sauce, vanilla pudding and whipped topping...
This trifle is in a large crystal bowl. I swirled the caramel and whipped topping with a fork to make it even fancier. The cross is made from cinnamon sticks. Even with food, I try to keep the Easter focus on Jesus and his sacrifice for us!
"Be imitators of God, therefore,
as dearly loved children and live a life of love,
just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us
as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God."
Grace and joy to you! Virginia Knowles P.S. This blog post is linked to...
