Marshmallow Delight

For Christmas a few years ago my cousin gave all of us ladies a framed copy of one of my Grandma's recipes.  It's special because it is in Grandma's own handwriting.  I love it.  "Marshmallow Delight" has been hanging in my kitchen since it was given to me.

I've been wanting to add to it.
I took some scrapbook paper, embellishments, and a larger frame and got to it.
Here is the final product:

My Grandma made this marshmallow dish every holiday.  Honestly, I never really ate it back then.  Not because I didn't like it, because it's really, really good.  I guess there were just too many other options at holiday meals.  Now I always have a serving when my mom makes it on holidays. 

In this layout I also included two other family recipes.
My Great-Grandmother used to make yummy peanut butter balls every Christmas.

Yes, my Grandpa threw some ingredients together and called it "slop."
I assure you it is actually good despite the name.

I do like the end result.  It has sentimental value.  Now to hang it over my stove...
