Chocolate Raspberry Pie

Raspberry Chocolate Pudding Pie

Pie is always a welcome Thanksgiving Day dessert. This year add something other than pumpkin pie to the pie line up. A layer of sweetened condensed milk highlights contrasting layers of creamy chocolate pudding and sweet raspberry gelatin.

Jello Week Cosmo

National Jell-O Week

This food appreciation holiday sneaks up on me every year…. and yes, this is a real thing. A week that apparently also celebrates pizza and frankfurters with sauerkraut. And, as much as I love pizza, I won’t subject you to mozzarella and tomato aspic topped with mushrooms and onions… or worse, sauerkraut suspended in lemon jello, […]

Coconut Raspberry Agar

Each summer I try to showcase at least one vegan “jello”. This year’s Coconut Raspberry Agar, made with agar-agar a gelatin alternative, is the perfect summertime treat. Not only does it taste like a tropical vacation, but, since agar melts at much a higher temperature then traditional gelatin, it will survive the journey in the summer heat to your […]

Chocolate Raspberry Cream

Chocolate Raspberry Cream Jello

A little something special for Valentine’s day this year, I made this multi-layer heart shaped mold. The top layer is raspberries suspended in clear gelatin over a layer of sweetened condensed milk over a layer of raspberry gelatin over a crust of chocolate cookie crumbs. This was no easy feat so I hope my someone special loves it. Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

Etsy How-Tuesday: Raspberry Jello Cosmo

How-Tuesday: Raspberry Jello Cosmo I was very excited a few weeks ago when Etsy invited me to participate in their How-Tuesday video series to demonstrate my jello making skills.

Rainbow Jello Shots

Götterspeise Jello Shots

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 […]

Jello Newtown Creek 01low

Jello Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant

For my entry in the year’s Gowanus Studio Space Jell-O Mold Competition I made this jello and plastic replica of the Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant. A striking piece of engineering and architecture located a mere 500 yards from my apartment. The facility has been a point of interest for me since moving in to […]

Pomegranate Berry

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 […]
