Something Easy To Assemble Mix & Chill

Many of you know me very well and know that decorating is more fun for me than cooking! There…I’ve now confessed to blogland around the world! If you follow my blog, Helen’s Decor, on Facebook, you already knew that. In fact I had even misplaced my recipes that weren’t saved on this computer yet. You know the ones that are printed off and folded and yes, stored in “that cookbook”…but which one? Really, I do love the cookbooks and reading them, yet I seem to fall back on my tried and true easy recipes.

Are you that way, too? Whenever possible the ingredients Bob and I prefer do not have real sugar. For example, canned fruit usually has Splenda in it when available at the “grocery store”. “Cool Whip” is either “Cool Whip Free” or “Lite Cool Whip” or the house brand of either. House brands work well in this fruit salad, too.

1 (8 ounce) carton Cool Whip Lite
1 (21 ounce) can strawberry pie filling
1 (15 1/4 ounce) can unsweetened crushed canned pineapple, drained
1 (15 ounce) can fruit cocktail in light syrup, undrained
1 cup miniature marshmallow
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup pecans, chopped

Step 1 Mix altogether and chill! You’re finished! My family has been known to enjoy this as breakfast, dessert, served with a holiday meal…it’s great! Our grands love it, too. The link to my recipe storage is below and don’t miss the note I aka eHelen left explaining this one! It’s been fun with this one for sure. Hope you’ll return soon to see what we have cooking outside! Love this time of the year!

  1. Hi Helen! Oh, this sounds good and I make something similar! Oh, honey, I remember the day too! I couldn’t cook doodly squat! and needed all the help I could get. I enjoy these olden cookbooks and the pictures in them. I’ve got a whole bunch of them. Thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia 😉

    • Hi Shelia, Glad to hear that you like that easy recipe. You sound exactly like the young bride I was. Bob picked out that cookbook for me because it basically assumed I knew nothing about cooking. I laugh about reading how to bake a potato…it’s in that book you have, I’m sure. LOL, and that book was bought shortly after the explosion in the kitchen…I’d almost forgotten that one. Another day, I’ll tell more about my adventures in cooking…stay tuned.

  2. Wonderful recipes. I bet some of those cookbooks are a kick to read. have a happy and safe 4th. xo Linda

    • Thanks for dropping by on the 4th, Linda! Stormy weather prevented a lot of 4th activities today. Hope it was great in your area. Those old cookbooks are priceless! Thanks again, Helen
