Any similarities between this blogger and the Junior League of Jackson is purely accidental and highly improbable, which in no way is meant to be a criticism of the League. Oh, no.
Junior Leaguers across the South always do things first class, take the Jackson bunch's cookbook, circa 1991. I had occasion to thumb through a copy, one a colleague says is the only cookbook she uses, and even 17 years ago, these ladies had veered away from Dump Cakes and Breakfast Casseroles to inventive recipes like the salad one shared below.
All of which finally gets around to the question of the headline. What can you do -- you, blog readers -- with one box of Jiffy or its equivalent? Taco pie topping? Sweet (as opposed to savory) corn muffins?
We'd really like to hear some suggestions, and if you think your recipe/story/comment is too long to leave here as a comment, you can always e-mail me, firstname.lastname@example.org.
OK, here's one use the Junior League of Jackson had for a box of Jiffy. I'm gonna make this for my grandson's graduation party. Actually the party's for the parents/grandparents, but all of you parents/grandparents of teenagers already know that.
