Pancakes, Yummy Pancakes

My friend Kristen over at Frugal Antic of a Harried Homemaker has some wonderful gluten free recipes. This week I tried out her Apple Walnut Pancakes and found them absolutely yummy. I did substitute two of the ingredients in her recipe because I just didn't have them on hand (coconut flour for almond flour, and 2% milk for buttermilk). They were decidedly delicious and now I am out of apples. I only had one and now it is gone.

PS. Kristen's pancake pictures are ever so much prettier than mine.

Crown Jewel Dessert


-1 small pkg. each-red, orange, lime and lemon gelatin
-1 envelope Kraft Dream Whip topping

Dissolve each package of red, orange and lime gelatin separately in ¾ c. boiling water. (Save lemon gelatin for later.) Stir to dissolve completely. Cool with 5-6 ice cubes. Pour each color into a separate shallow pan (or pie plate) and chill until firmly set. Cut into small squares and place in large mixing bowl. Mix lemon gelatin with ¾ c. boiling water and stir to dissolve. Cool with 5-6 ice cubes. When lemon gelatin is just beginning to set, prepare Dream Whip according to package directions. Quickly blend together with setting lemon gelatin using hand mixer. Pour mixture over gelatin squares and fold in, being careful not to mush squares. Pour into lightly greased gelatin mold. Refrigerate until completely set. Remove to serving plate.

This was my mom's recipe and she made this often for summer gatherings when we were kids. I found some links to this 1963 recipe here  and here. But I think mine is prettier. :)
