Takes me right back to my childhood. While growing up my grandma use to make this atleast minimum once a month. I haven’t had the pleasure of making it since she passed away, well… a couple days ago, I was going through her cookbooks that my mom obtained. Few recipes down in her HUGE pile of index cards, sat a simple recipe that I simply was able to taste once I seen what it was.

So fast forward to today and I believe I need to share it with everyone! I think she would love to know that others out there are enjoying grandmas recipes.

  • 1 (1-ounce) box cheesecake flavor Sugar-Free Jell-O pudding
