Vegetable Trio Salad

This vintage style veggie salad made with carrots, mayo, green peppers, and onion suspended in lemon gelatin with salt and vinegar is straight out of the 1950’s and despite it containing gelatinized mayo is actually not that bad. This jello along with 3 others from my book makes an appearance on the The Chew, hosted by Iron Chef America‘s Mario Batali and Michael Symon, Top Chef‘s Carla Hall, and What Not to Wear’s Clinton Kelly, as part of their “cooking through the decades” week with jello representing the fabulous 50’s. The show, airing Monday February 6th, is available to stream on The Chew’s website.

Orange Spice & Cream


Fall is setting in in Brooklyn and with it come the fall-time jellos. 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 of cinnamon. This jello was made for a going away party for my dear friend John who is off to the deep south to return to school. Good luck John! I miss you already!
