1 pkg jello (I like strawberry)

1 cup hot water

1 container Cool Whip, thawed

Fruit to match the jello flavor, cut up

1. Mix jello and water. Dissolve and let sit to room temp (even put in refrigerator for a few minutes to cool it some).

2. Then add the Cool Whip, and mix well. You can leave it at this, and put in pretty bowl and refrigerate till ready to serve, or, before chilling, you can add the diced fruit, and then chill.

Linda's Note: It is really good and reminds me of the 'Whip and Chill' that Betty Crocker used to make.


1 can tomato soup

1/2 cup vinegar

1/4 cup brown sugar

1. Mix all together. Keep warm in saucepan on the stove, or store in container in refrigerator till ready to use.

2. Baste your baking chicken pieces in 9x13-inch pan periodically with the sauce.

Linda's Note: This sauce is also good on other meats.
