Peach Bellini 2
Summer is waning (a fact which I am in complete denial about) but it’s not too late to squeeze in some summer-time activities such as lounging poolside while enjoying a giant, gelatinized Peach Bellini. Its been a while since I’ve made a large jello mold so for this year’s annual pool party with co-workers on Long Island, I decided to make this 5 pound Bellini in lieu of tiny jello shots. Fresh peaches and lots of bubbles are suspended in most of a bottle of peach schnapps and champagne making this a light, refreshing, and intoxicating treat.

Honey Bourbon Peach Smash
Spring has finally arrived in Brooklyn and it is time for outdoor gatherings. Served at a fancy garden party to celebrate the engagement of Art & Marty, these bourbon jello shots are sweet and sophisticated. Made with delicious Honey Bourbon and peach puree, these were the perfect refreshing summer treat. Congratulations to Art & Marty!

As seen on CBS Sunday Morning (air date 9-9-12), this retro treat is made with a layer of sweetened condensed milk topped with peach gelatin and sliced peaches arranged like a bright sunflower. This is one of many recipes included in my new book Hello, Jell-O!: 50+ Inventive Recipes for Gelatin Treats and Jiggly Sweets.  The recipe is below so you can try this is for yourself (with an option to add a little schnapps to the top layer if you like). More jello making tips and step-by-step photos for this very recipe can be found on The Kitchn if you are more of a visual person like me. Enjoy!

Pretzel Peach Pie

Sweet and salty deserts are all the rage, and while you may not think to combine such flavors the outcome is really quite amazing. A little saltiness from the crunchy pretzel crust of this pie really brings out the sweet flavor of the peaches with a cool layer of creamy cheese in the middle. The peach layer, made with peach nectar rather than preflavored peach gelatin, is velvety and delicious with a dash of cinnamon and honey to give it a little spice. I wrote this recipe especially for the Cooking Channel where you can find the recipe complete with process photos.

Peach Cobbler Cocktail

After an especially mild New York winter an early summer is starting to set in (hopefully I am not cursing myself into a May snow storm by saying this). For the summer I want to create a series of fancy cocktail inspired jello molds. This recipe, adapted from a cocktail recipe inspired by a dessert recipe, is a good transition with its summery peaches and wintery cinnamon. Filled with plenty of vodka, it is sweetened with honey, peach nectar, and a splash of vanilla soy milk. It was served last weekend for my friend Amanda‘s birthday.  Happy Birthday Amanda!

Fall is setting in in Brooklyn and with it come the fall-time jellos. This one is a remake of the Orange Spice Jello with a middle layer of orange gelatin, peaches, and rum, spiced with cloves, cinnamon, and the zing of vinegar. In addition, it has a top and bottom layer of sweetened condensed milk flavored with peach syrup and a touch of cinnamon. This jello was made for a going away party for my dear friend John who is off to the deep south to return to school. Good luck John! I miss you already!

Summer Fruit Pie

For the past few months I have been cranking out the heavy, creamy, boozy, winter-time jello molds.  But now that Spring/Summer is finally here, it is time to lighten up. This sweet and refreshing fruit pie was the perfect fit for this past weekend’s backyard brunch party hosted by Art. I used a pre-made shortbread crust which was a great compliment to the tart layer of peaches, strawberries, and blackberries suspended in peach gelatin over a creamy layer of sweetened condensed milk.

Savory Cheese Mold

Peach Blackberry Jello Minis

Mojito Jello Mini

D'Gari Gelatin

To celebrate my own Scorpio birthday this year I threw a Jello Party. I made my first savory jello for the occasion of chive cream cheese, cottage cheese, sour cream, and Worcestershire sauce.  I also created an array of liquor filled mini jellos in such flavors as peach, mango, gooseberry, and mojito, all with either rum or vodka. In addition I made a pistachio dessert jello with whipped topping. I was introduced to D’Gari gelatin mixes which come in a variety of exotic flavors (like Walnut, Coconut, Chocolate, and Eggnog) and are made with either water or milk. I used these to make most of the jello minis and the pistachio jello.
