Jim recommends this delicious dessert as a perfect ending to a heavy meal.

Two egg whites, beaten stiff
Two cups heavy cream, whipped stiff

  • Sprinkle gelatin over cold water; let stand five minutes.

“IF YOU HAVE TO give up drinking, eat,” is Jim’s advice as he recommends this zippy appetizer to start a dinner.

Jellied Bloody Mary

  • Start with a 12-ounce can of tomato juice. Pour one-fourth cup into small bowl; add one envelope unflavored gelatin; let it soften.
  • In saucepan pour remaining juice; bring to a boil. Add one teaspoon Worcestershire and few (or several) dashes of Tabasco. Stir it, take off the fire and add to gelatin mixture, stirring well. Let cool for few minutes, then add good half cup of Vodka. Mix well. Pour into custard cups or other small molds. Refrigerate overnight. To serve, unmold onto lettuce leaf and garnish with lemon slice.–Yields 6 servings.
