Food Friday: Reading Women's Club Jello a la 1976

You have to love the bicentennial celebrations here in the United States. It's during that magic year of 1976 that towns, organizations, and groups published all types of histories and even cookbooks.

Enter the Reading Women's Club (Reading, Kansas) Cookbook. This 1976 cookbook published by the Reading Women's Civil Club includes a list of members, a photograph of their presumed meeting place and of course recipes.

 Lots of great midwestern recipes in this cookbook. Of course I had to gravitate to the one that is an old favorite. In my family, as I have written before, it is called Pink Stuff.


  1. That is remarkably similar to a dessert my mother in law makes called ______ Delight - depending on which holiday. The holiday affects the flavor of Jello used based on color and it omits the mandarin slices and marshmallows. The rest is the same.

  2. I think many families have this jello recipe, calling it a host of various names.I have to tell you it is actually one of my favorites.

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
