This dish is so yummy it really could be called a Grape Praline Dessert… I love making this dish, it’s so easy and colorful and did I mention yummy? I made this dish a couple of days ago for a small get together and it was a hit. I]ve been making this for some years now and it’s always a hit for summer. You have to have cool and cold dishes for those HOT summer days but you still want to have tastey dishes too…
I guess there are others who think this dessert is good too. I was watching Trisha Yearwood’s cooking show on the Food Network channel this morning and to my surprise, she made this Cool Grape Dessert, my recipe, well the recipe I’ve been making for years, can you believe it? You think she saw my recipe and liked it? LOL Probably not, but wishful thinking… Anyway, kids here’s the recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as we all do.
