*****    Free: New and Sweet Recipe! *****

Do you have the “Good Housekeeping”  issue for May 2013?  If you can get your hands on this issue  –  grab it!  The reason for getting this issue  –  the free recipe  is  from    Julianna Margulies  – who plays  “Alicia Florrick in the  Good Wife!”

“Good Housekeeping”  did an article about  “The Good Wife”  –   and on page 48 , left bottom corner…  it states to  tell all of  the readers to…    “Steal This Sweet!”  This is  “Julianna’s  fave  macaroon recipe”     and as I was reading  that it only takes four (4) ingredients  and chocolate chips  if you want chocolate icing on top.  As I was reading how easy  this recipe is to make  –  just  had to try  it out  –  and was  so happy with  the good and sweet results.  So if you to   –  like coconut and easy recipes  –  this is the one for you to try,   now.

Another  way that I use coconut is with  “Jello”   – I add a can of  “Fruit Cocktail”   –   walnuts  and coconut.   This is the best dessert for me in the evening  and with all  of the ingredients  that I  really like   and so good for you!

Since  the “Good Wife’s recipe only takes  a portion of a can of the  sweetened condensed milk  –  you need a back up  recipe  – to use the rest of the can.    My suggestion  –  as…  this is what I did.   Another  favorite recipe of mine  and for at least thirty years is  the  “Magic Cookie Bars”   –  so…  this is  a very and sweet use….  If you check this recipe out you will find   –  as I did  –  cut all the items   in half …  since you have almost a half can of condensed milk to use.  Also I used a glass pie plate and you will find  –  this is just the right amount of dessert needed.  And all of this is so easy and a nice sweet treat in the evening!

If you have a “sweet tooth”  and like something quick and easy  –  try my suggestions!    “I’ll be right over   –  to enjoy  with  You!”      D.V.
