This blog features Lois Elaine Mueller's recipes every Monday. Lois' heyday was in the 1950's and 1960's, and her children swear she was the best cook that ever lived. Many baby boomers will remember these mouth-watering recipes, and these dishes are just as tasty today as they were in the sixties.
Gelatin salads were popular in the 1960's and taste just as good today! Here is one that Lois Elaine used often, she got it from her sister Clarice....
Lois Elaine's Gelatin Salad:
1 pkg lemon jello
1 pkg lime jello
2 c. hot water
1/4 package marshmallows
1 can drained crushed pineapple
1 small pkg cream cheese
1/2 c. nuts
1/2 pt. whipping cream
Put marshmallows in top of double boiler until dissolved (can probably use the microwave here). Melt jello with 2 c. hot water. Take a little of jello mixture and pour into marshmallows and mix. Let stand until half firm. (Cream pineapple and cream cheese together first). Add crushed pineapple and cheese to the half firm jello. Fold into jello mixture and also fold in 1/2 pt cream, whipped, and the nuts. Let stand until firm.
