Mom's Secret Cherry JELL-O(R) Salad
This was easy and just enough of a difference to your standard jello with fruit that it really stood out and got rave reviews. By no means a gourmet or exotic side or dessert, but a tasty, easy, and economical salad that is definitely worth trying. Instead of whipped topping I made whipped cream (fresh whipped cream is so easy and much better flavor, texture, and richness compared to whipped topping in a tub. My personal opinion). Seved it with a ham dinner and the sweetness was perfect compliment to the salty ham.

I Don't Know
My husband loved this. Very quick and easy and great on a cold night. I used canned green beans instead of the mixed frozen vegetables. It was good, but I think the mixed veggies would have added more flavor and texture. I also added a small can (4oz) of diced green chiles. Next time I will add two cans of chiles. Per the other reviews, I did add an extra can of Cream of Mushroom soup. It was a little soupy for me, but would have been too dry without it. Next time I will go with one can of soup and a little milk.

Easy Peach Crisp II
Super easy and really good. A definite keeper. Great for when you need something homemade, but don't have a lot of time. Your guests will be impressed that you had time to "bake all day". I made the recipe as is, and really enjoyed it. I persoanlly like a little more peaches though. The next time I made it with an additional small can of peaches. I also increased the flour by about a 1/4 cup, decreased the sugar by a 1/4, and doubled the amount of cinnamon. It turned out great. I have also substituted the peaches with apple pie filling. Great with vanilla bean ice cream.
