Favorite Jello Salad

Favorite Jello Salad

This recipe is one that my mom has made since I was a little girl.  She got the recipe from her sister, and named it “Favorite Jello Salad.”  It’s a classic recipe straight out of the 50′s or 60′s, but it’s so good that I had to share it with you.  Southern Living recently did […]

Cranberry Fluff
