This year for John’s 5th annual Easy Breezy Birthday Brunch I made one of the more difficult and beautiful jello creations, the Rainbow Jello mold.  This classic favorite is compromised of 10 layers and 5 different flavors, each with a clear fruity layer and a creamy opaque layer of sweetened condensed milk.  As you can see, John loved it and so did everyone else. The recipe for this can be found in a preview of my new book. Happy Birthday John and congratulations on another successful Easy Breezy!

This is a new take on a very old-school recipe and I found it quite tasty. Made with fresh avocado and mayo, it’s a savory mold much like guacamole (minus the onions). Strawberries offer a contrasting flavor and an attractive garnish.

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.

In honor of Valentine’s Day I made these jello replicas of the classic candy message hearts. They can be made with any jello flavor and sweetened condensed milk. I used cake decorating letters for the messages. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Starr told me about this strawberry Jello and cream cheese layered dish with a crushed pretzel crust that was a childhood favorite and a staple at family gatherings in her Pennsylvania hometown growing up. I’ve been wanting try it for a while so I made it for Starr for her birthday. I followed the recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything. (In retrospect I would have used less Cool Whip, as little as one cup, as my cheese layer came out too runny and sweet.)  Happy Birthday Starr!

Strawberry Shortcake Jello

This jello is more cake then jello. Its an angel food ring sunk down in mashed strawberries and strawberry jello.  A slice is topped off with a dollop of whipped cream.

Stain Glass Jello

Stained Glass Jello Prep

Laura (aka Lil Mama) brought this recipe to my attention. Its is constructed of blocks of strawberry, lime, and blueberry Jello suspended in a mixture of Knox and what I consider to be God’s gift to gelatin: sweetened condensed milk.  MmmMmm!

Expect more sweetened condensed milk jellos because its really very amazing.

Sparkling Champagne Jello

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.

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.

After a few practice jellos and unmolding mishaps to gruesome to show photos of, I created my first successful Jel-ring jello mold. This mold is strawberry Jello with chopped blueberries and strawberries throughout and a Cool Whip layer on the bottom.
