These two recipe cards appear to have the same recipe for Pretzel Jello. It sounds like a dessert dish made of strawberry jello, cream cheese, Cool Whip, and pretzels. I don’t believe I have eaten this, but I am 100% positive it has been served at church socials and family potlucks nationwide!

I’m not 100% sure what a pineapple casserole would taste like, but with the flour and sugar, it sounds like maybe a dessert? This is an interesting one and I wonder how it would taste. The addition of a Ritz cracker topping is very unusual.
Here’s another guess at what this is, but I’m a little more confident this time. This looks like a recipe for pineapple cake, or even pineapple upside down cake if you take a little effort. A little history, of course, because that is what I do heh. The first pineapple packing house was built in … Continue reading
