A Nut in a Nutshell

Menopausal New Mom

The Mother Load

I need do better about posting about the great giveaways you all do, I will do better, I Promise, Cross my Heart :)

Also my 200th post is coming up and it will be time for a giveaway here! I have been trying to decide what would be a good one??? Any suggestions?? What have been some good giveaways that you have seen in BlogLand?

Here are my pictures from Thanksgiving, the only ones I got, the recipe links are HERE.

Banana Cream Pie

Coconut Cream Pie

This is my Grama's Fluff Recipe, we turned it orange, it tastes like a dreamcicle :)

Grama's Fluff

1-12oz can evap milk
1-6oz pkg jello
1/4c. lemon juice
1-3/4c. boiling water
1c. sugar
2c. graham cracker crumbs

Chill the can of milk in the refrigerator overnight. Dissolve jello in the hot water and chill until partially set,like thick syrup. (about an hour)

(This is the part where I forget that I am making something and my jello sets completely, after doing this 3 TIMES the day before Thanksgiving I finally put my 3rd batch of completely set jello in a glass bowl in the microwave for 1-1/2 minute and it got to the right consistency, hurray!)
(I think I need my own cooking show -Cooking with the Idiot- move over Rachel Ray!)

Whip your syrupy jello until it's light and fluffy, stir in the lemon juice and sugar, set aside. Whip the milk until it forms peaks, fold in the jello mixture. Spread half of the crumbs in the bottom of a 9x13 pan, pour the fluff over that and top with the remaining crumbs. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight.

This a Holiday Traditional Recipe for my Family, it's not a Holiday Dinner without this for dessert.

I think you should do a giveaway of a basket of sweets that you make.

Basket of sweets- yummy!

I think you should giveaway some of your favorite products- favorite baking magazine, cookbook, chocolate, cocoa, cookie cutters. Something that doesn't cost a fortune to ship :-)

Holly said...

Your treats look delicious! Very intrigued by the Fluff..thanks for the recipe.

As for a giveaway...the top two suggestions are great....or an apron, a cookbook or a subscription to a cooking mag (I stink at this stuff!)

That fluff looks yummy...and sounds even yummier!

Oh the fluff brings back some nice memories, my grandma used to make this, something similiar called green goop...

Maybe a Christmas cooking magazine, there are so many good ones out right now?

I was at the bookstore the other day waiting for my daughter to be through with rehearsal and happened upon a really neat crafting magazine. That sounds right up your alley!
