Jello Cheesecake – No Bake Low Fat Recipe

Today I will share a No Bake recipe for a Low Fat Jello Cheesecake, which is very simple to prepare, presents itself very nicely, and tastes delicious.

Jello Cheesecake is much lighter than a traditional cheesecake, and to make it even lighter, you may use 1/3 less fat cream cheese, which I tested on one of the layers, and it held up as well as the regular cheese.

Steamed Fruit Dumplings – Recipe and Technique

This recipe is a very old favorite of mine. It reminds me of my grandmother’s cooking days and my Sunday visits to her with my mom.
I love these fluffy dumplings because they are so light in texture, and so delicious served with melted butter and sugar.
This recipe goes back to my great-grandmother who was of German descent, and most likely back to her mother and grandmother, which datewise would go back to the 1700s.

Ukrainian Potato Salad (Olivie) – European Recipe

There are so many different versions of Potato Salad, but once you taste this one, it will be your favorite.
It is very similar to the Suburban Potato Salad, but it contains a few different ingredients, such as spicier mustard but no apple.  In Ukraine many cooks add cubed smoked sausage (Kovbasa) to this salad, making it even richer in taste and texture.

Strawberry Napoleon Dessert – Recipe

I love the creaminess of the custard filling in a Napoleon dessert, the flakiness of the pastry layers, and the sweetness of the glazed top, accented with dark chocolate.

It was an easy project, thanks to Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry dough, instant pudding mix, my home grown strawberries, and fresh whipped cream.
