Okay, so this isn’t like a homemade shortcake recipe. But it IS a super fast, easy, and relatively low fat dessert that everyone in our family loves. So I’m gonna share it.



  • Sliced Strawberries
  • Cool Whip (lowfat)
  • Sponge Cake or Pound Cake (Sliced)



  • Place one slice of pound cake on a plate and top with a dollop of whip cream and a few strawberries. You could stop right there, but why? We like to go for one more slice of cake, another dollop of whip cream, and a few more strawberries. And that’s it! Seriously easy, light, and supper yummy!

Alternate idea: Add a teaspoon of sugar to your sliced strawberries and allow the to set for a few minutes to create a more juicy strawberry topping.

I hope you enjoy our simple family dessert.

  1. Looks delicious! I tried emailing you, but I’m not able to on our computer without having an email account through our iMac, so I’m hoping you’ll read this instead! I recall you mentioning earlier this school year that you were planning to use The Mystery of History. I wondered if you ended up following through with that and if so, how you like it, etc. I know you made timeline figures to go along with it. I am really having a hard time deciding what to do for history next year for my K and 2nd graders. Anyway, I would love to know more, but I realize you are a busy lady and answering all of our questions probably isn’t at the top of your to do list! 🙂 Thanks for all of your useful ideas.

    a. Split a Pillsbury Biscuit in half, place in a bowl
