That said, I just landed a new day-job that I am very exciting about which means that jello has take a […]

Gingerbread Men

Two words: Cute and cute. (My favorite is the guy on the top right with the beady eyes and green star buttons!)

Fireball Shots

Cinnamon flavored whisky is all the rage at the moment and its my friend Katharine’s favorite bottle to bring to a party. So when she threw an end-of-winter party, I had to bring some Fireball Shots of my own… jello style! Akin to the Atomic Fireball candy we all chipped a tooth on as a kid, […]

Pumpkin Spice Latte

According to New York Magazine, pumpkin is the new bacon and the Pumpkin Spiced Latte is really trending this fall. With the return of Starbucks’ seasonal favorite and slew of imitation recipes making the rounds, I decided I best jump on the bandwagon and make my very own pumpkin spice latte jello. More like a custard than a jello, it […]

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.

Peach Cobbler Cocktail

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 […]

Holiday Gum Drops

Apple Goat Cheese

Flavor Tripping parties have been growing in popularity over the last several years and I finally got invited to one. The idea behind these parties is that one consumes Miracle Fruit, a berry that makes sour, spicy, and some savory foods taste sweet (for about an hour), and then sucks on lemons and pours tabasco sauce all over their tongue to experience the unfamiliar […]
