Welcome to my Food Blog!

Welcome! My name is Anne, aka ThePharmGirl. In 2010, I successfully made 100 recipes as a New Year's Resolution to expand my culinary repertoire and cooking skills beyond the frozen microwave dinner. This blog is a continuation of my culinary journey and serves as my personal virtual recipe box. Sometimes I like to have fun-- Check out my Muppet Mania Menu, The 12 Days of Christmas, and my Musical-themed recipes.

Picnic Pleasers: Fruit Salad and Deviled Eggs

This isn't part of my recipe challenge, but I made a couple food items for a family cookout and thought I'd share the very easy recipes.  The fruit salad was especially good.

Fruit Salad
1 (29 oz) can peach slices in lite syrup, undrained
1 (20 oz) can pineapple chunks in juice, undrained
1 small box vanilla fat free instant pudding mix (dry)
1 pound strawberries, stemmed and quartered
1/2 pint blueberries
1/2 bunch grapes (any color)
2-3 sliced bananas or other fruit(optional)

In a large bowl, combine the pudding mix and half of the pineapple and peach juices.  Mix until pudding is dissolved.  Discard the remaining juice. Add the fruit to the bowl and stir to combine until the fruit is coated with the pudding mixture.  Chill before serving.  Makes enough for a large crowd (12-15 servings).


Deviled Eggs

6 hard-cooked eggs, peeled
3 tablespoons light Miracle Whip
1/2 teaspoon dry ground mustard
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
paprika to sprinkle

Cut eggs lengthwise in half.  Slip out yolks and mash with fork.  Stir in mayonnaise, mustard, salt, and pepper.  Fill whites with yolk mixture.  Sprinkle with paprika.  Cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours.
