Meet the Cook: Whenever I have company, I like to be able to just pop the food on the table. So this recipe's a real favorite of mine. I got it from a friend who made it for our church get-togethers. My husband and I raised four children; today, we have seven grandchildren. In our small town, farmland surrounds us on three sides, and we face the Columbia River on the other. -Lois Chapman, Ridgefield, Washington

  • 3 packets unflavored gelatin
