Getting Kids Involved in Cooking

Jell-O Fruit Salad

 1 small package Jell-O any flavor strawberry is their fave

 2 C sliced strawberries any fruit fresh or canned

2 C cool whip 2 C cottage cheese

 2 C mini marshmallows

 These amounts are all adjustable if I am short on something oh well, it is delicious anyway. Nuts are good also but one of our grands doesn’t like them so, you know we have to spoil the grands when we get the chance.


 Refrigerator Muffins

 (feel free to cut the recipe in half if you wish)

 3 Cups sugar

 1 qt. Buttermilk

 1 C shortening

 4 eggs

 5 tea b. soda

 4 C All-Bran cereal

 1 tea salt

 2 C 100% bran cereal

 5 C flour

 2 C boiling water

 Pour Boiling water over 100% bran. Cream shortening and sugar, add eggs, buttermilk and 100% bran. Sift flour, salt and soda together. Add all together with All-Bran. Fold in only until moistened. Pour into greased muffin tins or muffin cups and bake 15 to 20 minute at 400 degrees.

 This batter will keep in refrigerator for 6 to 8 weeks. Keep batter covered. I use any bran cereal. When I want to use some batter I pour out how much I need and add slivered apples, raisins, dates, nuts or whatever I want before putting into the liners. For holidays use holiday colored liners.
