Grandmas Fruited Rice
By William Fleming

The recipe we give below is the classic style that Grandma makes for Christmas every year. Actually Grandma always makes a double batch, but we have given measurements for just enough to feed 4 to 5 people.
Grandmas Fruited Rice
1 Cup cooked rice still warm1/4 Cup granulated sugar2 Pints fresh whipping cream2 Cups powdered sugar1 Standard size can fruit cocktail, drained4-5 Bananas, cut long ways and sliced thin2 Cups pecans or walnuts - chopped2 Tsp. vanilla flavoring
Mix the sugar and cooked rice and set aside.
In large glass bowl use either a whisk or an electric mixer to beat the whipping cream to a medium froth - it is not necessary to go all the way to peak.
Then slowly mix in the powdered sugar and vanilla to taste, being careful not to flatten the cream. Next add the canned fruit, bananas, and nuts. Once blended well cover the mixture with wax paper, and place in the refrigerator until chilled.
The mixture may appear to be a little too wet before chilling, but don't worry the rice will continue to absorb liquid as it cools.
Tips and Ideas on Variations
This recipe doubles easily, and many substitutions can be made. The nuts can be chopped or left whole - whichever you prefer. Any type of fruit can be used, and actually in any amount. Since there is no actual cooking of the finished product you can add as much or as little fruit or nuts as you like. Marshmallows and raisins make wonderful additions as well.
So have fun and customize this recipe to make it one of your family’s favorites.

Chocolate Recipes and Memories
By... Dave Owen

Everyone has a favorite chocolate recipe that is dragged out for the holidays or other special occasions. Friends and family beg you to share your delectable and sinful recipe, but so far you just haven’t been quite ready. When you decide to take the leap, here are some suggestions to get the best effect.
Chocolate Recipe Gift Basket
Gift baskets are very popular especially around the holidays, so make a few of your best chocolate recipes and put samples in a small basket along with nicely decorated recipe cards and serving suggestions. If you really want to make the basket special, include some of the dry ingredients in mason jars and attach the recipe card to the jar. This makes a lovely holiday gift or a shower gift for a new bride or bride to be.
Chocolate Recipe Memory Book
Every family recipe has a memory or story behind it and chocolate recipes are usually a favored and special moment in families. Create a scrapbook or memory book and include your chocolate recipes along with family memories, stories and even a picture or two.
Thanks to the internet and the many creations that one can find on a computer, there are many ideas to make the book special. If you have a child about to leave home, put a book together for your child along with stories of your favorite memories from their childhood that surround those chocolate recipes.
Maybe your recipe has a history. Was it Great Grandma’s recipe possibly handed down from her great grandma? Have there been changes in the recipe over the years? Or, possibly Uncle Joe asked for a goodie box with those chocolate delights while he was serving in the Army in some Godforsaken place.
Chocolate seems to bring people together, and with those people come wonderful memories to be cherished. Sharing those memories along with the recipes will bring joy to many generations to come, and help create a family history for the young ones who are not yet old enough to understand how important that history will be at some point in their lives.
When you share your chocolate recipes you are sharing a part of yourself with those who matter most to you. Enjoy your chocolate recipes with your family and friends while creating new memories.
