Ok yall. Before any rumors get started- No. I am not pregnant! (sorry mom & dad! lol)


I have cravings all the time. I need to stop talking about food with my clients because I always end up craving what we talk about. For example, my client last night told me she was craving a Whitt's loaded baked potato and guess what I am craving now? :-) Last week, a client of mine told me she loved Stratton's fried chicken salads and I have had 2 since then. Well, about a month ago, one of my clients told me she loved jello with cool whip on top. First, let me say that I HATE jello. Its a consistency thing. But not anymore!! I love love love it! Here is a good recipe that I found. It is so yummy- trust me, I should know. I've made it twice in the past 3 weeks :-)
Strawberry Delight Squares (you can find this recipe on the cool whip container but I didn't add mandarin oranges that it calls for)

1 1/2 cups Honey Maid honey grahams finely crushed. about 20 squares.
1/2 cup sugar divided
6 tbsp. melted butter or margarine
1 1/2 package Cream Cheese
2 Tbsp. milk
1 cup thawed cool whip
2 cups boiling water
1 package (8 serving size) strawberry Jell-O
1 1/2 cups cold water

Mix graham crumbs, 1/4 cup of sugar and butter. Press firmly onto bottom of 13 by 9 inch baking pan. Set aside.

Beat cream cheese, remaining 1/4 cup of sugar and milk until smooth. Gently stir in whipped topping. Spread over crust. Refrigerate.

Meanwhile, stir boiling water into gelatin at least 2 min until completely dissolved. Stir in cold water. Refrigerate 1 1/2 hours or until slightly thickened. Spoon over cream cheese layer.

Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm. Cut into 20 squares. If desired, use additional whipped topping to garnish each serving (which I would SO recommend doing :))
Now would someone PLEASE come to my salon and talk about healthy food so I can start craving things that won't make me gain tons of weight!!


  1. Oooh THat does look so good. This time of year, I almost hate going grocery shopping... There's so many yummy things making me lose my will to stick to a diet!

  2. I will have to try this I think my kids would love it and I have to go grocery shopping to day.
    I have had so many Google problems-and it isn't over-Google has no idea how to solve the problem.
    Sorry I haven't been by much-I decided after weeks and weeks of non-stop Google issues, I am throwing my hands up and making much needed visits.
    I hope you have a Very Merry Christmas and hope you can come by for a visit.
