Why I Love This Recipe

This was a recipe I learned as a student at the University of Utah. I wasn’t from Utah and didn’t have family in the area so it was a special occasion when a classmate and friend invited me to have a homecooked meal with his family. It was a very welcome change of pace from the simple meal-for-one college student fare that was my regular routine, and I made sure to learn how to make the dessert we had that night. I don’t remember now if they called the dish “Pink Stuff” or if that was the name my kids gave it years later when I started making it for my own family, but that’s definitely how we know it today. It’s a quick, easy and delicious.
