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, […]
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.

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 […]

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 […]
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 […]

This smooth and creamy jello mold is made of apricot gelatin and sweetened condensed milk with chopped pears and peaches.
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 […]
