Elegant Jell-O Dessert with Cream

Substitute sour cream and cream cheese for cold water in a regular Jell-O recipe, whisk together, unmould after four hours, and decorate with whipped cream dots using a pastry bag. This elegant lemon Jell-O dessert was made with the sugar-free variety, and is practically carbohydrate-free.

Elegant Red Cabbage Salad

Red or purple cabbage, sliced thinly and mixed with feta cheese, yellow tomatoes, olive oil, vinegar, cilantro and salt makes an elegant salad. I grew this purple cabbage and the yellow pear tomatoes. It is best to let this dressed salad sit at room temperature for at least an hour, so that the cabbage softens a little.

Silk Scarves as Elegant Tablecloths

Posted by Picasa
Elegant decorating doesn't require spending money. All it takes to elegantly arrange and embellish a room is vision. Looking at things that we already own, and seeing them in new applications, tasteful decorating ideas
are created. A huge silk scarf that is never worn can be pressed into service on a small, occasional table.
