Hello from the Hunt Kitchen!

I was told I have lots of good recipes and that I should start a recipe blog, so here ya go! My fondest memories of home were sitting around to the table each evening with my family to eat a good home-cooked meal and I desire to keep that tradition going in my own home. I work hard to make sure my family has a good and balanced meal each day. I have tried each of these recipes and give them my approval.

I'm going to post my weekly menus as well, so feel free to mooch if you like. I do all my grocery shopping on Saturdays, so I plan my menus from Saturday to Friday. Friday is always Pizza Day; Saturday is usually open to either leftovers or some sort of burger. Wednesdays are usually leftovers as well - most of the recipes make more than enough for dinner for our family of 5, so we always have food to eat on Wednesdays without having to fix something new.

Please leave your comments on any recipe you try - even if it didn't work out! Bon Appetit!!

Easy Eclair Dessert

27 Whole Graham Crackers, halved
3 cups cold Milk
2 packages (4-oz. each) Jello-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding & Pie Filling
1 tub (12 oz.) Whipped Topping, thawed
1 container (16 oz.) ready-to-spread chocolate fudge frosting

Arrange 1/3 of the crackers on botton of 13x9-inch baking pan, breaking crackers to fit, if necessary.

Pour milk into large bowl. Add pudding mixes. Beat with wire whisk 2 minutes. Gently stir in whipped topping. Spread 1/2 of the pudding mixture over crackers. Place 1/2 of the remaining crackers over pudding; top with remaining pudding mixture and crackers.

Remove top and foil from frosting container. Microwave frosting in container on HIGH 1 minute or until pourable. Spread evenly over crackers.

Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Cut into squares to serve. Garnish with strawberries. Makes 18 servings.

Cool Tips: You could mkae pistachio, banana-flavored or even double chocolate eclairs by simply changing the pudding flavors.

This is an easy dessert for kids to help make - they can arrange the graham crackers in layers in the pan, stir up the pudding and even help spread the frosting on top.
