My daughter, Kayla, 9, loves to make Fluffy Pink Puff for Family and friends. It is simple and tasty, and her four siblings are more than ready to help lick the leftovers on the beaters. As a side benefit, cooking can also be included as part of her Science curriculum, for it is really simple chemistry -- the combining of different elements, then checking, and testing, the results.

  As a teacher before I had children, I was always trying to find practical ways for my students to learn from life. Now homeschooling means Kayla has plenty of time to invest in her hobby -- making fun foods in the kitchen.


Try varying the flavour of the Jell-O.

In a large mixing bowl, dissolve: 

  • 1 3-oz package strawberry Jell-O

  • 1 cup boiling water

Cool in refrigerator until mixture starts to gel. (The mixture should then resemble the consistency of raw egg whites.) Next beat the Jello-O with an electric mixer as you slowly add: 1 cup cold milk. Continue beating until light and fluffy. Put in Jell-O mould, then choose one of the following methods:

Method #1. Refrigerate until firm. Unmould onto serving plate.

Method #2. Freeze Overnight (or longer, if you wish). Thaw at room temperature for 20 minutes before serving, then unmould onto serving plate. This is a delicious, frozen dessert (or it can be used as a salad) and it comes in handy for unexpected company. TIP: If your Jell-O mixture gets too firm before you have a chance to whip it, microwave it for 30 seconds or until it is the right consistency.
