Million Dollar Trifle Dessert

Saturday, March 7, 2009

I made a delicious dessert for today's family picnic (my parents, my sisters and their kids, my husband and our boys and their wives, and Zeke!!!) I can't wait! I even have a niece here from the the Left Coast, aka, "Californee." :) The weather is picture perfect - I'll post some pictures later! Anyway, this is the dessert called "Million Dollar Trifle." It is light and lush and good to welcome Spring...or to celebrate the beginning of Daylight Saving Day!
