GARLIC MONKEY BREAD

1 pkg dry yeast

1 cup warm water*

2 cups whole-wheat flour, divided

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 tsp salt

vegetable cooking oil spray

1 tbsp salt-free butter, melted

1 garlic clove, minced

1 tsp dried parsley flakes

1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper


In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water; let stand 5 minutes.  Combine the all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour and salt.  Add to yeast mixture, stirring well.  Gradually stir in remaining flour to make a stiff dough.  Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, cover and let rest for 10 minutes.  Knead dough for about 10 minutes or until smooth and elastic.  Spray a bowl with vegetable oil spray and place dough in the bowl, turning to grease the top.  Cover and let rise in a warm place, away from drafts, until doubled in bulk--approximately 1 hour.

SUNSHINE CUPS

3/4 cup boiling water

1 small pkg sugar-free orange gelatin

1/2 cup cold orange juice

1/2 cup cold water

1/2 cup fresh raspberries

1 small can mandarin oranges, rinsed and drained

Put dry gelatin into a medium mixing bowl.  Stir in boiling water and still at least two minutes until gelatin is completely dissolved.  Stir in juice and cold water.  Refrigerate approximately 1 1/2 hours until thickened to the point that a spoon drawn through the mixture leaves a definite impression. 

Take 3/4 cup of the thickened mixture out and set aside.  Stir raspberries and orange segments into the remaining gelatin mixture.  Pour into 6 serving dishes or into 1 larger bowl.  Beat the reserved gelatin on high speed of electric mixer until fluffy and approximately doubled in volume.  Spoon over gelatin.  Refrigerate at least 3 hours until firm.
