Two things we made recently have several steps and were more fun in a group. One was cheesecake from my grandmother's recipe. The other was chicken stir fry.
I don't know if you've ever had this happen--you go through old recipes that have been used for two or three generations and there are no amounts given. Add a pinch of this, a jar of that. At the time the recipe was written, there was probably only one size jar of something, but now it comes in four sizes of cans! So I've made my best guess.
8 oz cream cheese large pack lemon jello
1 c sugar 1 c boiling water
1 tsp vanilla 12 oz can of condensed milk
Graham cracker Ready Crust
Chill condensed milk.
Combine boiling water with dry jello mix.
Mix sugar, cream cheese and vanilla.
Add jello mixture and whip. Set aside.
Whip condensed milk.
Combine with cheeseand jello mixture. Whip.
Spoon into crust. Chill three hours.
|You need three bowls for this. One for the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. One for the condensed milk. One for the jello mixture.|
|The white bowl is the condensed milk whipped. We used to use "milnot" which really whipped up foamy. They don't make it anymore. This time we used Walmart's Great Value brand.|
You can add toppings. We usually top with blueberry pie filling.
I will post the stir fry pictures next time. I just realized that we made it wrong the last two times! We left out the water and bullion. I created the recipe using a combination of ones we found online, so I don't have clear directions. I think we found most of them too blah and added chicken broth made of water and bullion, and I didn't do that the last two times. That explains the "blah" taste!
