Beautiful Creatures- Cherry Fluff

In our book club we have been knee deep in the Beautiful Creatures series of books.  Of course I see the mention of a food  in a book and all I can think about is what is in it and what it would taste like if I did this or that.  I know, it's food OCD.......This recipe is SWEET but it is light in the same way.  I think this would make a good dessert for the Easter Holiday, at least it looks Springy.  Did I mention that here on Beaty's Creek we ate fresh wild onions while it was snowing?????  Come Spring where are you???  This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek!

1 can crushed pineapple
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 container Cool Whip
1 can Cherry Pie filling

Mix everything together and then chill overnight.  Simple, simple, simple but sooo good!

St. Michael's Alley White Chili

When Sean and I were first dating he took me to St. Michael's Alley on a date.  We had escargot and white chili. I know what a weird combo.  St. Michael's was and is still known  for their white chili.  I was so happy when the Tulsa World published this recipe a while back.  It is just like St. Michael's and I don't have to leave my home on Beaty's Creek.  I know it has been a bit since I have posted a new recipe the reason is I have been have some issues with my left eye and a one eyed blog writer is not the best by far.  heehee   This is  What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek today. Like Spring today and Winter tomorrow...Only in Oklahoma!!
