Chocolate Mousse Cake

Chocolate Mousse Cake

Chocolate Mousse Cake is another no bake dessert that’s simple and delicious and is sure to become a family favorite.  Creamy and delicious, this is the perfect decadent dessert.  This recipe is similar to the Chocolate Eclair Cake recipe that we published in December of 2015, but since we are making it in our 30 days of cans, we substituted canned evaporated milk in place of fresh milk in the mousse.    This is such a fun and simple dessert, we will be making it several times this summer.

Peach Melba Gelatin

Peach Melba Gelatin

Peach Melba Jello Salad contains all of the flavors of a traditional Peach Melba, but instead of poaching peaches in syrup, and serving them alongside ice cream  topped with raspberry sauce, we are getting this great flavor combination in a pan of gelatin.   I admit it’s not really the same, but it’s still good.  This recipe for  Peach Melba Gelatin can be made a day or two in advance and stored in the refrigerator.   It’s fun, and it’s kid friendly.

Fruit salad made with lemon gelatin, canned fruit, and cottage cheese is simple and delicious.

Lemon Gelatin Fruit Salad

This is my favorite variation of a Gelatin Recipe that has been around for many years.  This version which is made from pineapple tidbits and mandarin oranges has a decidedly light and refreshing flavor.  What I love about it is that it’s easy to prepare,  stores and travels well, and tastes good enough to serve to guests. 

Pineapple rice pudding

Pineapple Rice Pudding

This  recipe is a summer dessert that was created after several months of thinking about ways to modify some of my other recipes.  I love rice pudding, Glorified Rice, and Watergate salad.  I was wondering if I could somehow combine the Glorified Rice and Watergate Salad recipes to create a simplified version of rice pudding that would serve as a refreshing dessert for the hot summer months.      Aside from cooking the rice, this requires no cooking, so it’s great for days when you don’t want to heat up the house by turning on the stove. This pudding is very simple […]

A serving of my mother's glorified Rice

Glorified Rice

With Easter just around the corner, I have been thinking of the food traditions from my childhood.  One of the traditions of the season was Creamed Eggs on Toast.  Another was Glorified Rice.  I don’t know how this dish got its name, so I have no idea  why it was called glorified.  I only know that it was delicious and a childhood favorite.  Occasionally, my mother would make it on other occasions, too, but I always associate it with Easter. Glorified Rice is a combination of cold, cooked rice, pineapple, whipped cream, sugar, and marshmallows.   Maraschino cherries can also be […]
