In this house, we love Angel Food Cake. It’s virtually fat-free and has no cholesterol. This recipe is from Taste of Home, and encorporates jello powder right into the batter…in swirls. We often top our cake with berries, but I’ve never added jello powder to the cake before.  I think it would be a fun recipe to try!

This recipe comes from Food and Wine. Pecan Sandies are one of my Dad’s favorite cookies. He even likes the Keebler variety, but the homemade version is wonderful! These cookies are unbelievably light, delicate and crisp. The secret is to let the cookie dough chill overnight before slicing and baking.  Ingredients 2 sticks unsalted butter, […]
