Chocolate Macadamia Nut Jello

Thank you to Flossie for giving me a whole collection of Jello molds she accumulated from the thrift stores of Virginia. This shell shaped mold was among them. It reminded me of those little chocolates from a box of assortments that lingers around long after Christmas and after your New Year’s diet has begun.  So […]

There’s somthing in my Jello.

A couple of people pointed out these jello prints to me from Etsy.com and I think they are fantastic! The artist created them by printing the black objects as an archival digital print, then silk-screening the jello over them.  One can choose from two classic jello flavors:  Orange with pill, hair, ring and key, or […]

Rum Raisin Jello

This Rum Raisin Jello mold was severed for New Years and was a hit. In addition to rum and raisins, it’s flavored with sweetened condensed milk, eggnog,and cinnamon.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas from Edie the Hamster, the real Jello Mold Mistress of Brooklyn! (More of my ham-tastic photography can be found here.)

Eggnog Jello

This gelatinous version of a favorite holiday beverage is comprised of an eggnog layer on the top and a creamy dark rum layer on the bottom. A sprinkling of cinnamon and nutmeg add the finishing touch. Art gave this mold at my Jello Birthday Party. Thanks Art!

Raspberry Mint Cream Jello

This red and pink striped jello is the first in a series of holiday molds. The pink layers are sweetened condensed milk with melted and crushed starlite mints and the red layer is raspberry. Shane found this mold for me while thrift store shopping in Knoxville, TN.  Thanks Shane!

Kenosha Loves Jello

I found this photo on Flickr and had to share it.  FlyHeatherFly, a well-traveled flight attendant, snapped this pic at Woodman’s Grocery store in Kenosha, Wisconsin and claims this was only the tip of the jello mold iceberg as there was a complete isle dedicated to them. Who knew Kenosha loves jello?

Lobster Jello

My sister Kateri sent me this Lobster mold and I wanted to use it right away so I made a lobster jello for yet another Scorpio birthday, Jacob’s. This orange jello lobster with pistachio D’gari jello base is actually a remake of the original jello made for the party that did not turn out looking […]

Jello Party

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 […]

Cherry Pineapple Jello

Scorpio Birthday season continues with Lans’ birthday. For the occasion I made this cherry jello with rum, topped with pineapple.

Black Rose Jello

Scorpio Birthday season is fully upon us and for Art and Maya’s Birthday/Halloween bash I made this Black Rose jello with black cherry jello and vodka (yes, that’s me dressed as a Vulcan). The rose tips are highlighted with sweetened condensed milk.  Art got this rose mold for me while in Greece this summer. Thank […]

Pumpkin Jello

Halloween is here and to celebrate I made this seasonal jello with canned pumpkin, cinnamon and cool whip. Happy Halloween everyone!

Swedish Fish Jello

My mother gave me this mold a while ago and it always reminded me of a Swedish Fish.  So I was inspired to make this jello recreation of the candy in classic cherry flavor.

Mimosa Jello

Claire’s annual birthday brunch was a hit this year and so was my Mimosa Jello made with OJ and an entire bottle of champagne. Happy Birthday Claire!

Pineapple Jello

Marty is extra excited about this gelatinous pineapple replica made with pineapple and lime jello and crushed pineapple.  Rebecca found this mold in upstate NY and gave it to me. Thank you Rebecca. Pineapple is the symbol of welcome. In this case welcome to Fall.

Cherry Cream Jello

Rebecca C hosted a brunch in which I served little cherry cream jellos singles made with cherry jello and sweetened condensed milk, topped with powered sugar.  I also served a large version of the Coffee Kahlua jello that Rebecca K couldn’t wait to cut and serve.

Coffee Kahlua Jello

I ordered a baker’s dozen of these little molds specifically for this jello recipe.  Instant coffee, sweetened condensed milk, and Kahlua make up these small but very rich mini jellos topped with whipped cream and shaved chocolate. The recipe for this appears in my book, Hello Jell-O! 

Strawberry Shortcake Jello

This jello is more cake than 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.

Peaches & Cream (with Schnapps)

John and Lans enjoy my Peach Schnapps Jello at a Labor Day BBQ.  This Jello is composed of Peach jello with canned peaches and Schnapps on the top layer and sweetened condensed milk on the bottom layer.

Stained Glass Jello

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 it’s really very amazing.
