Hi all! I have signed up to teach a cooking elective this summer during summer school. My kids are special needs young adults and I need a couple very simple recipes we can make. We have 45 minutes start to finish and no oven. I do have a microwave and hot plate. Cutting would be good as I bought a bunch of lettuce knifes and cutting boards for us to use. So far I was thinking Vegetable Salad, Fruit Kabobs and some sort of no bake treat. Suggestions for that or others would be appreciated. Thanks, Karen

These are so wonderful. Made with flavored gelatin mix, these grapes make a simple yet elegant treat. Serve in a pretty glass bowl at a party. Instant hit.
