Inspired by the colorfully creative and talented Katie Sokoler and her blog Color Me Katie I decided to make a super bright and shiny Color Me Jello. And since it was Katie’s birthday and since she lives in my neighborhood, I decided I’d just pop by and present it to her. Tickled, she took some fun photos of me and my jello. For this jello I followed the Rainbow Mold recipe but added an extra top layer of suspended strawberries. Thanks for the wonderful photo Katie!

This vintage style veggie salad made with carrots, mayo, green peppers, and onion suspended in lemon gelatin with salt and vinegar is straight out of the 1950’s and despite it containing gelatinized mayo is actually not that bad. This jello along with 3 others from my book makes an appearance on the The Chew, hosted by Iron Chef America‘s Mario Batali and Michael Symon, Top Chef‘s Carla Hall, and What Not to Wear’s Clinton Kelly, as part of their “cooking through the decades” week with jello representing the fabulous 50’s. The show, airing Monday February 6th, is available to stream on The Chew’s website.

Commissioned by my friend Jill for her friend Ellen’s baby shower I created this cute little pastel jello. The traditional baby color bands are comprised of lemon, blueberry, and strawberry gelatin and mixed with sweetened condensed milk. Congratulations Ellen!

My friends Art and Marty recently returned from gallivanting around Europe, Berlin and Amsterdam mostly, and brought me some Euro-gelatin from both destinations.  The German Götter Speise gelatin came in three flavors Himbeer (raspberry), Zitronen (lemon), and Waldmeister, which I assumed was lime by its green color but is actually Woodruff and had an herbal flavor. Combined with a little Vodka I used these gelatins to create rainbow jello shots for a summer rooftop party.

If you weren’t sure before, you can be sure now: summer has arrived to Brooklyn. With temps souring into the 90’s, I created this cool and refreshing Lemon Poppy Seed Jello. Like the baked good of the same name, it is made with fresh lemon juice, poppy seeds, and has a base of cool vanilla yogurt making this jello not only tart and tasty, but also healthy and beach body friendly. Go summer! The recipe for this appears in my new book.

This year for John’s 5th annual Easy Breezy Birthday Brunch I made one of the more difficult and beautiful jello creations, the Rainbow Jello mold.  This classic favorite is compromised of 10 layers and 5 different flavors, each with a clear fruity layer and a creamy opaque layer of sweetened condensed milk.  As you can see, John loved it and so did everyone else. The recipe for this can be found in a preview of my new book. Happy Birthday John and congratulations on another successful Easy Breezy!
