Breakfast And Brunch - Swedish Tea Ring

This is a hand-shaped, filled yeast bread that my 2-year-old daughter loves to help prepare. The first part of this recipe is prepared in my bread machine on Christmas Eve. I make it right up to the second rise stage, then cover and refrigerate it. On Christmas morning, I allow it to warm up and rise until double in size before baking. It is especially sumptuous when it is still warm and a special treat for Christmas morning in our house. Drizzle chopped, toasted almonds over the ring if you wish.

Salad - Blueberry Gelatin Salad

This is a recipe I discovered about 25 years ago when grape gelatin was hard to find! It's a terrific side dish or a delicious dessert. It's very rich in flavor and can be made ahead of time. Also good with cherry gelatin and cherry pie filling.
