Nothing like I planned...

So this week didn't go exactly as I had planned. After returning from Idaho and still feeling sick, I went back to the doctor and found out that I had pneumonia. I already new that being sick and being a mom mixed about as well as oil and water, but this week I learned that lesson on a whole new level. I have to give a big thank you to my awesome neighbor Iliana who brought us dinner and gave my little Reese a much needed escape from cabin fever. Also a big thank you to my brother for watching and playing with Reese when I needed him to. He's been her favorite babysitter!

Needless to say, our dinners this week haven't been too interesting or exciting. With the exception of Iliana's wonderful enchilada's, we've had frozen dinners, take-out and pizza. I did however manage to put together this yummy dessert with my mom's fresh raspberries. I just couldn't let them go to waste.

This is a recipe that my mom always made when we were kids. It was always one of my favorites. I made a couple little changes but it's still basically the same.

Wow- I have never seen this recipe anywhere except from my aunt. We used to have this all the time when I was growing up too and it was one of my favorites!
I made it a few years ago and I think it is still just as good as I remember.
So glad you posted this!
