Celebrate Jello Week with these yummy treats! What kid could resist them? So cute! How fun would they be in a lunch box or for a holiday or party treat!
I'm sure I have to be the thousand and eleventy-ninth person to blog about Julia Child since the movie came out. I don't care. She was special, and I want to say that here. I think it was her authenticity, both in her recipes and in her daily life that has endeared her to so many. Today I'm making her Chocolate Mousse, and speaking of authenticity, this is the real deal.
I’m a big fan of pudding, but rarely make it myself, so I’m definitely guilty of spooning down Jell-o snack packs from time to time – even adding a little squirt of whipped cream too!I was craving chocolate something fierce this weekend and decided to make homemade pudding with a little bit of Baileys Irish Cream just to make it extra special. Although I have made homemade pudding in past, I forgot how easy it is to make. Not only is making homemade pudding incredibly simple, it also tastes amazing and is a great framework for all types of flavor combinations.
To replicate the best puffy, feathery cinnamon rolls of our youth, we made a buttermilk-based sweet dough. The buttermilk adds richness, but also keeps the dough from being too heavy or greasy. Rounded out with some melted butter and a few eggs, our sweet dough was rich and moist and, best of all, easy to put together.
As blogger and photographer Victoria Belanger –aka the Jell-O Mold Mistress of Brooklyn –says in her new book (out Feb. 28!!), “champagne is a sign that something special is going on.” Champagne and strawberries in a jello mold–this celebratory creation is bound to be a showstopper at your Valentine’s Day festivities. from by Victoria Belanger (Ten Speed Press, February 2012) Makes 7 to 10 individual molds or one 7-cup gelatin mold

Call me easily amused, but these little torch-topped cupcakes delight me. Besides being a cute novelty item for a party, I think they would add a little drama to the end of a romantic meal. I've been looking for something different to serve for Valentine's dessert, and this is definitely different.
Its the holidays . . . got gingerbread? Gingerbread Martini Jelly Shots to the rescue! As the holiday season is now well underway, I thought that you might enjoy a seasonal jelly shot libation! Gingerbread Martini Jelly Shot is a sweet, creamy and subtly spicy treat, topped with a tiny dollop of whipped topping and a maraschino cherry segment.
While trying to come up with more ideas for fall party treats, I realized I may have been a little selfish recently in only making caramel apple jello shots ... While I prefer caramel apples, there are others (like my boyfriend) who like candy apples better ... I think they are tasty, but they get stuck in my teeth and that drives me crazy... they sure are glossy and pretty though. They make me think of carnivals and circuses, cinnamon red hot candies, nail polish and sports cars. This time of year you don't have to wait for a carnival or circus to eat one, along with caramel apples you can find them prepackaged at the grocery store with coconut flakes sprinkled on top.
Rock Candy Jello Shooters with Midori Melon Sour ~ Put the kids to bed and have some fun with these Jell-O shots made into Rock Candy and spiked up with some Midori Sour Melon. Rock-Candy-Jello-Shooter with Midori Melon Sour Remember how much you loved those rock candies on a wood stick when you were a kid? Well here it is reinvented as a Jello shooter. Can you tell I’m on a Jello shooter run? This really has Matt scratching his head since I’ve never shown a propensity towards alcohol.
I have good news and bad news. We'll start with the good news first ... They taste really good . Just like pumpkin pie with a kick of rum, strong rum , the kind that warms up your whole body as it goes down.
Ho Ho Ho . . . Santa's Hat Jelly Shots Holiday WHIRLWIND! Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season. I meant to get this post up before Christmas, as the recipe is fun, timely and topical. Unfortunately, I was precluded from blogging activities due to a particularly awful phenom known as the "Ice Dam".
Class act. Yup, that’s what I am. Last week, I actually told my husband that I wanted to make these gelatin shots to have at the ready so when I got home from my last class, I could celebrate–just the way a college student would. He looked at me funny and nixed the idea.
Posted May 23rd, 2011 by jellyshottestkitchen Not surprising, really – this layered concoction is the J-Lo of jiggly desserts – down to earth and completely approachable, yet strikingly lovely. It is also certainly as enthusiastically received as any celebrity/pop star/actress/TV personality!
