There are many recipes, patterns, and a multitude of other things to make our homes cosy and welcoming. This is my cosy corner of good things to eat and other "creature comforts"; things just to make our families, and ourselves, feel good.
Comfort Food...Gelatin Dessert, better known as Jello
Something I don't make very often is "Jello" dessert. It always surprises me when company reacts in a very happy way to eating something we had a lot of as a child. Served with whipped cream, dream whip, or vanilla ice cream, it is something that brings back good memories of childhood. The donuts in the picture, I regret, were not home made. When renovating a house, donuts are not overly convenient to make. The pampered chef utensil in the picture was used to stir the jello; it is actually a potato masher, and contrary to appearances, works very well. My friend Karen introduced me to it, and I liked it so much that when I saw the Pampered Chef car in the grocery store parking lot I left my name and number on a sticky note pasted to the drivers side door. I don't generally do cooking ware parties because I don't really need all those things I would love to have, but this one I don't regret buying in the least.
