Welcome

I am constantly amazed at how animated and talkative people get when you mention food. The mere aroma of certain foods can evoke memories that transport us back to a special place and time. Food can bridge the gap between all ages, races and ethnicities.
Let's face it, the only thing that should ever come between people is a table and some serving bowls.

Pretty in Pink




With all the picnics and family gatherings lately I have noticed more and more, that the majority of stand out dishes being passed around have either Jell-O or Bisquick somewhere in there list of ingredients. It makes you wonder how we ever lived without these products.
I haven’t had a Jell-O or Bisquick recipes yet that I have not enjoyed.
This cake is no exception; it is just bursting with the taste of strawberries. Surprisingly as far as cakes go, this one is not overly sweet; as a matter of fact it actually tastes just like fresh strawberries.
You can’t beat the color; this would be a great birthday cake for that little girl in your life who loves everything pink.

Strawberry Jell-O Cake

1 pkg. white cake mix
1 box strawberry Jell-O
3/4 cup cooking oil
1/2 cup frozen strawberries, thawed
3 tbsp. flour
1/2 cup water
4 eggs

Add flour, eggs, Jell-O, water and oil to cake mix and beat 2 minutes at medium speed with mixer. Add strawberries and beat 1 minute until smooth. Bake according to cake mix instructions.

ICING:
1 stick butter, softened
1/4 tsp. salt
1 box powdered sugar, sifted
1/2 cup frozen strawberries, thawed

Cream butter until smooth. Add sugar, salt and berries as needed. Beat well. Spread on cake. Garnish with fresh berries when serving.
