Villisca Cooking School

Well, we finally made it to the last recipe in the old recipe box. It's a missing section from a cooking program brochure we discovered earlier in the box you can see here. I hope you enjoyed our little journey, and maybe even found a recipe or two to try. If you are discovering this blog after the end just look over the list of recipes on the left and click on whatever sounds enticing. Bon App├ętit!

Jell-O Cake

My wife has made a similar version of this Jell-O cake recipe for years. The fact that she is still making it for holidays and get togethers might speak to the popularity of the dessert. You can experiment with different Jell-O flavors until you find your favorite combination.
