Lemony Orange Dessert

This is usually a hit at family gatherings. It's a fairly flexible recipe, I like to use the lrg box of orange jello and 2 cans of mandarins. You end up with a nice creamy jello dessert. The orange jello mellows out the tang of the lemon pudding.

You will need:

1 large (8 servings) box Lemon Pudding - cook 'n' serve
1 sm (4 servings) or 1 lrg box Orange Jello
1 or 2 cans mandarin oranges - drained
1 tub whipped topping

Mix up the orange jello leaving out half of the cold water. Set aside. Cook the lemon pudding according to directions. Remove from heat and mix in the orange jello with a wisk. Pour into a 13 x 9 in dish. You can mix in the mandarins before you pour it into the dish or drop them in afterward. Chill until set - I like to make it the day before. Top with the whipped topping and serve.

Triple Berry Dessert

This is a recipe that one of the senior missionary sisters gave me in Hawaii. It was a hit at every luau she brought it to. Be aware that it does serve a lot, so it is not something you would fix for a small family, unless you want to eat it for the next few days. It does hold up for several days, if you are sure to thaw the berries before you put it in the whipped cream.

1 can sweeten condensed milk
1 12 oz tub of a dairy whip (or larger if you want)
1 package of thawed triple berries (Costco, Sams)

Allow the berries to thaw for about an hour before you start this.

First mix the condensed milk and the dairy whip together in very large bowl
Then add the thawed berries and carefully blend into the creamy mix

Refrigerate until time to serve. Serves many.
