Some Things You Should Know

I started this blog a long time ago as when it was "What's Cooking at My house" and before my mad photography skills kicked in and before we went gluten free. With that said you never know what you might find here. There's a little something for everyone I believe. But my hope is to provide more recipes with better photos to tempt your tummy. *smile*

My Grandmother's Cranberry Salad

My Mom found me the original recipe of my grandmothers. She made this for every Thanksgiving as far back as I can remember. She passed away at age 94 about 7 years ago. I had found a recipe similar but it wasn't my grandmothers. So my Mom was able to find this one page out of Mamie's cookbook that had this recipe on it. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. I'm excited to actually get to make the "original" this year and even put it in the original glass dish that she would make it in. I dedicate this recipe to my Grandmother Mamie.

1 Package of cranberry gelatin
1 c. of hot water
1 can whole cranberry sauce
1 sm. can crushed pineapple, drained
1 small package of cream cheese 4 oz.
1 c. sour cream
1/2 c. finely chopped walnuts

Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Stir in fruit and nuts.
Pour half of mixture into your mold or pretty dish. Place in fridge until firm.
Blend cream cheese and sour cream.
Spread over chilled gelatin.
Add remaining gelatin and chill until firm.
Enjoy!
