Forgo the pecan pie this Thanksgiving and try a jello instead! The delicate flavors of warm butter, cool ice cream and crunchy pecans are not overshadowed by the bite of bourbon. It’s like have pie with ice cream all rolled into a tidy little mold, with a little side of booze. The perfect end to your Thanksgiving feast!
Fireworks, BBQs, and Jello Shots!!! It’s time to celebrate American Independence and serving up vodka soaked sweet cream layered in cored out strawberries to all your closest friends and neighbors is the best way to do it. These boozy bites will be devoured at at rooftop party hosted by my neighbors and myself tomorrow as we get a prime view of the fireworks. Happy 4th of july!
Admittedly, I have been absent from the jello blogosphere for some time. My new job has been just the new start I needed and has also kept be super busy. But…. summer is here and with it comes more summer cocktail inspired jellos! Thus, I give you The French 75. An iconic drink of New Orleans made with gin (or cognac, depending on who you ask), lemon juice and topped with champagne. These jello shot versions (made with gin) were in celebration of a co-worker’s recent New Orleans destination wedding and again for a Memorial Day cookout to usher in the long awaited warm weather.
Who says jello shots can’t be romantic? Little strawberry cups hold gelatinous champagne topped with a little sprig of mint. This bite-size take on the classic aphrodisiac is sure to spark that Valentine’s Day romance… or, at the very least, get your date a little buzzed.

This holiday season, get your party guests in the spirit with some spirited cheesecake bites. Bourbon livens up these individual sized cheesecakes made with cream cheese, sour cream, and a hint a vanilla. Have a happy holiday!
You might be surprised to learn that The Jello Mold Mistress has a day-job. As much as I wish I could make jello full time, it doesn’t fully support
my fancy lifestyle the high cost-of-living in Brooklyn. That said, I just landed a new day-job that I am very exciting about which means that jello has take a backseat for the past couple of weeks. But, with the holidays coming up, I wanted to take the time to post more stuff! This recipe can be found in my book Hello Jell-O!. It’s an autumn inspired jello that mixes carrots and cream cheese with the warm flavors of vanilla and cinnamon and would make a great addition to the Thanksgiving dessert table. Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
Summer is NOT over yet! I don’t know about where you are, but here in Brooklyn its still 85 degrees (for an hour or two in the middle of the day). So cool off on a “hot” day with slices of pink lemonade. Made in a lemon rinds with cherry soda, pink lemonade, and couple of shots of vodka, these jello shots are sure to quench your thirst… or at least give you a little buzz.
