Snickers Apple Salad

Snickers Apple Salad

This recipe for Snicker’s Apple Salad was given to me by a client. He told me it was amazing. He wasn’t lying. This salad reminds me of a caramel apple coated in nuts, but buried in whipped cream. I’d never heard of Snicker’s Apple Salad before he shared this recipe. It’s decadent. It’s delicious. It should be illegal, but since it contains apples, a fruit, […]

Gelatin Parfait

Gelatin Parfait

This recipe for Gelatin Parfait created some debate in our household its proper name. Baker’s Man said it was called a Gelatin Parfait, but I think of parfaits as more elaborate layered desserts. It wasn’t until a trip to one of our local grocery stores, that I realized that people really call this simple dessert a parfait. Who knew? I guess Baker’s Man did. This […]

Orange Fluff Gelatin Salad

Orange Fluff Gelatin Salad

This Orange Fluff Gelatin Salad is the perfect recipe. It’s simple to prepare, and there’s no waiting while layers are setting up. You just dump everything into a bowl and stir it together. Stick it in the fridge for a couple of hours, and you’ve got a delicious salad. This recipe might be considered cheating during this 30 days of gelatin recipes because it’s very […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
