Looking for a sweet dessert filled with strawberries and cream? Look no further – this Strawberry Shortcake Trifle With Angel Food Cake is sure to satisfy any sweet-tooth!

Happy Easter (late)!

I hope you had a wonderful day with your family! We started out the day with a pancake breakfast at the firehouse. My husband is a volunteer fireman and had to work the breakfast, so he brought my oldest daughter along so she could rack up some community service hours for school, too.

My youngest daughter and I slept in and had a little bit of a lazy morning before we went down for breakfast. Then, we all came home and searched for what the Easter bunny left the girls. After the baskets had been found, we chilled out, watched some TV and relaxed for awhile. It was a great way to spend Easter morning!

We decided that instead of having the traditional ham and sides we were going to have an old-fashioned style cook-out for our holiday dinner. We made hamburgers and hotdogs along with potato salad, cole slaw, fresh homemade refrigerator pickles and this amazing Strawberry Shortcake Trifle with Angel Food Cake.

It was so nice to actually spend time with the family instead of standing in front of the stove all day, like I do on most holidays.

I highly recommend you give it a try the next time you have to make a holiday dinner for your family! Go with simple, they’ll still love the meal and you’ll get some quality time in with them, too!
