A couple of years ago for the Chinese New Year I made a Year of the Rabbit jello. According the the Chinese Zodiac, this year begins the Year of the Snake. I don’t have a snake mold so I used this goldfish mold to symbolize surplus in the new year. I made a traditional Chinese dessert recipe of almond gelatin and mandarin oranges with a red cherry eyeball. The red symbolizes good luck. The Year of the Snake begins on February 10th and if you are like me and you were born in 1965, 1977, 1989, or 2001 this is your year!
Sadly the holidays are over and now all we have to look forward to is a long, cold winter… and jello! An adult version of the classic childhood favorite, this pudding from scratch is made with ripe banana, sweetened condensed milk, and a splash of bourbon. Spiced with cinnamon and garnished with mini vanilla wafers, the flavor is sweet and warm. This dessert is perfect for keeping warm during those longer winter months.
Ring in the New Year with sparking champagne, fizzy ginger ale, and sweet strawberries. A favorite from my book Hello Jell-O! this unconventional celeabratory treat is sure to please. Check out The Recipe Club for the recipe and have a Happy New Year!
Inspired by Margarita, my Puerto Rican con-worker (at my non-jello day job), and her annual holiday offering of Coquito, Puerto Rico’s version of eggnog, I made a Coquito Jello for this year’s office holiday party. Loaded to the gills with rum (at least the way Margarita makes it) it has a creamy base of coconut milk and sweetened condensed milk and is spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Intoxicatingly delicious! See the recipe below and have a Merry Christmas!
I made this jello a last year for St. Paddy’s day and it was such a hit it deserves revisiting. Green and minty with a little liqueur to warm the heart, this jello mold just feels like Christmas to me. Crème de menthe and sweetened condensed milk top off a chocolaty cookie crust. This recipe appears in my book Hello Jell-O! but I’m sharing it here as my holiday gift to you. Check out my book for many more recipes like this one (52 to be exact) and have a safe and happy holiday season!
This year for my Thanksgiving jello I wanted to do something retro. A take on the very vintage Tomato Aspic that your Grandmother may have brought to the Thanksgiving dinner table but with the added twist of booze. Its made with all the classic Bloody Mary components: tomato juice, vodka, beer, garlic, Worcestershire, and hot sauce, plus green olives suspended throughout. Initially I wanted make this recipe just for fun, but it turned out to be pretty good. I thought about adding some shrimp cocktail into the mix but figured I should just quit while I was ahead.
