Honestly, how many blue desserts have you come across? Think about it, put some cream on the top, and you've got the red, white and blue! The possibilities are endless.
Our sweet Maria is known for her stirring abilities. The 'Couchara' part of her name actually means 'spoon', and to some of us she is known affectionately as 'Coochie'. For those of you who haven't yet met her, go and visit her.
This recipe is remarkable, in that it really couldn't get much easier than this. You only have one bowl and one spoon to mix your ingredients together, and even to wash afterwards. As an added bonus, if you take it to a potluck, or show off at a baby shower as some people do, you will definitely be tops in the popularity poll for the evening.
Yeah Maria, you rock with this recipe!
Thanks a bunch for answering the call to help those struggling to find time or reasons for cooking. The deadline for our competition entries is March 20, 2014. Details are on this post. The plan is to develop and publish a cookbook of simple recipes, and 70% of all proceeds from this will go to K9s For Wounded Warriors Project/Rescue.
Bonnie's Blueberry Fluff
My Mother in law died in 1996. I think of Bonnie most every day. She raised a son who has many gifts, one the passion they both share(d) in making others happy with delicious food.
Geoff was 33 years old when we married. I was a child bride...
A cookbook for bachelors that supports K9s for Wounded Warriors, just like Mysterious & Miraculous Book I ...?
Sweet! I love this idea...! No pressure!
I can enter as many recipes as I want because, as a Legacy Scribe, I'm not eligible to win. Easy -- I can ask a former bachelor for his suggestions.
Geoff's initial response was, "Best stick with something even you can make, honey."
(Ahem!) My thanks to Geoff and his Momma for Bonnie's Blueberry Fluff'. Even I can make this...
- 16 oz whipped Cool Whip (the only time we use it and homemade WILL NOT work, Vicki. It must be Cool Whip)
- 1 packet of jello (match it to your fruit choice and mix it in thoroughly with a whisk)
- 16 oz small curd cottage cheese (add and keep stirring, folding in ...isn't this easy?)
- 2 cups berries (you can use blueberries, raspberries, strawberries - real light, don't bruise the fruit)
Let it chill in refrigerator with light-plastic wrap; overnight is best.
The picture we took is for a recent baby shower we catered. The size you see is double the order and was plenty for a dozen ladies at a party...
I warn you, this stuff is addictive, delicious and perfect for so many reasons. We never make single orders any more!
For a comfort food that satisfies your sweet tooth without the guilts, try your hand at Bonnie's Fluff. Then pull out your Couchara (spoon) and enjoy!
Thanks, Vicki! Hoping for many more easy, delicious recipes start coming in!
Hugs to all!
