Mango Melon Surprise

(The surprise is rum!) For Rebecca‘s birthday this year I made this fruity and festive summer mold with mango gelatin, mango rum, and cantaloupe.  I found these mini cookie cutters at a shop in Chinatown and they were perfect for cutting the cantaloupe into fun star and flower shapes for the mold.  The folks at […]

Cranberry Pomegranate Salad (with Vodka)

Triple berry salad is a classic Jello recipe, but mine has a few twists. This sparkling treat is made with cranberry gelatin and tart pomegranate juice, along with vodka and club soda and is filled with blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries.  It was served at a birthday BBQ to a crowd who had never tired my […]

Applejack Jello

Another refreshing spring time jello, inspired by one of Shane’s favorite drinks, comprised of layers of apple cider, chopped green apples and vodka.  Sweet, tart, and tangy all at the same time!

White Sangria Jello

Spring is here! And with spring comes a new batch of spring-time jello treats. Far starters, this fruity white sangria jello, made with a little bit of white wine, and a whole lotta grapes, strawberries, and apples, is sure to be a hit at any garden party.

Lucky Jello

Better than green beer and just in time for St Patrick’s day I made this fun, green jello. The bottom layer is lime with vodka and the top layer clear gelatin with lime green maraschino cherries suspended throughout.  Happy Wednesday everyone!

Rum Raisin Jello

This Rum Raisin Jello mold was severed for New Years and was a hit. In addition to rum and raisins, it’s flavored with sweetened condensed milk, eggnog,and cinnamon.

Eggnog Jello

This gelatinous version of a favorite holiday beverage is comprised of an eggnog layer on the top and a creamy dark rum layer on the bottom. A sprinkling of cinnamon and nutmeg add the finishing touch. Art gave this mold at my Jello Birthday Party. Thanks Art!

Lobster Jello

My sister Kateri sent me this Lobster mold and I wanted to use it right away so I made a lobster jello for yet another Scorpio birthday, Jacob’s. This orange jello lobster with pistachio D’gari jello base is actually a remake of the original jello made for the party that did not turn out looking […]

Jello Party

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 […]

Cherry Pineapple Jello

Scorpio Birthday season continues with Lans’ birthday. For the occasion I made this cherry jello with rum, topped with pineapple.

Black Rose Jello

Scorpio Birthday season is fully upon us and for Art and Maya’s Birthday/Halloween bash I made this Black Rose jello with black cherry jello and vodka (yes, that’s me dressed as a Vulcan). The rose tips are highlighted with sweetened condensed milk.  Art got this rose mold for me while in Greece this summer. Thank […]

Mimosa Jello

Claire’s annual birthday brunch was a hit this year and so was my Mimosa Jello made with OJ and an entire bottle of champagne. Happy Birthday Claire!

Coffee Kahlua Jello

I ordered a baker’s dozen of these little molds specifically for this jello recipe.  Instant coffee, sweetened condensed milk, and Kahlua make up these small but very rich mini jellos topped with whipped cream and shaved chocolate. The recipe for this appears in my book, Hello Jell-O! 

Peaches & Cream (with Schnapps)

John and Lans enjoy my Peach Schnapps Jello at a Labor Day BBQ.  This Jello is composed of Peach jello with canned peaches and Schnapps on the top layer and sweetened condensed milk on the bottom layer.

Sparkling Champagne Mold

In an effort to make more ‘from scratch’ jello recipes I’ve employed Knox unflavored gelatine to make this mold with ginger ale, champagne, sliced strawberries, and grapes.

Orange Spice Jello

This zesty recipe has a unique flavor that made it a sell-out hit at game night with friends this week. It is made with orange gelatin, peaches, cinnamon, cloves, vinegar, and rum. Yum! The recipe for jello mold will be included in my new book, but I have included it below so you can try it now!

Pina Colada Jello

I made this Pina Colada jello mold for Rebecca‘s birthday party. It is pineapple Jello with coconut milk and spiced rum, topped with pineapple slices and maraschino cherries. I was a little worried that it would be gross but it was absolutely yummy and a total hit! (So much so that during the party while […]

Brains!!!

Art gave me this mold with an assignment to make a mold that looked better than the one on the box. I think I succeeded. If anything this Strawberry Jello mold with chopped strawberries, Cool Whip, and a whole lotta Vodka succeeded in getting some people far drunker than they intended.  

Vodka Tonic Jello

This was a hit at Hoover’s BBQ. Its top layer is lime jello with vodka and blueberries and the bottom layer is tonic and Cool Whip. So far I’ve been using household items as jello molds, this being a Gladware container, but my first real jello mold is on order.
