Cool, creamy and pretty as a picture, this luscious Italian dessert is elegant enough for the fanciest dinner party. Instead of using ramekins, pour into cocktail glasses and chill for a dressier look. Mariela Petroski - Helena, Montana
I like to serve this combination of fruit, Jell-O and cream cheese as a salad with a main dish or as a light refreshing dessert. My close friend Joanie shared the recipe after I raved about it.

The rosy color and tangy flavor of this favorite salad comes through with every refreshing bite. It's a quick, simple salad and an excellent addition to any meal. Our family and friends look forward to this dish when joining us for dinner on the farm.

This is a very festive-looking accompaniment to any holiday meal—and it's especially pretty with a Christmas buffet. I usually serve it on a cranberry-colored glass serving plate. We were first treated to Russian Creme by a "welcoming family" when we became members of our church. Since then, it's become a holiday tradition in our household.
Circus Peanuts were one of the most talked-about candies in my hometown's old-fashioned candy shop. When I saw this gelatin recipe that called for Circus Peanuts, I knew just where to buy them and tried the recipe. Kids love its cool fruity taste, and older folks enjoy the trip down memory lane.

I love the sweet-salty flavor of this pretty layered dessert. Sliced strawberries and gelatin top a smooth cream cheese filling and crispy pretzel crust. I think it's best when eaten within a day of being made.
"With six children, I'm always looking for wholesome quick recipes," shares Mabel Yoder of Bonduel, Wisconsin. "This colorful salad can be fixed by school-age children and looks so pretty served in a glass bowl."
