Cheryl said...

All we did was put milk on red jello. Didn't matter what flavor, but it HAD TO BE RED JELLO!! LOL :-)

Unfortunately, I don't have a favorite childhood recipe for jello as we didn't have that in Ukraine where I grew up :(

Debbie said...

I loved the way my made made jello with bananas hidden inside and cool whip!

teresa said...

Great giveaway! I'm all about the jigglers! My mom used to make them and then cut them out with cookie cutters, mmmm!

Cheryl said...

I love YOU, but I hate JELLO, I betcha you didn't know that! and I think I came to a realization the other day, I dont think I like leftovers either, LOL!

Cheryl said...

Ohh not because of anything you have on your blog, just that I push them off on everyone else, leftovers I mean.

Amy said...

Jello cream cheesecake would have to be my all time favorite Jello recipe. I'm not sure where the recipe came from but I remember having it growing up.

Wenchzilla said...

I loved Knox Blox...I really should make some. Haven't had any in years!!!

Rebekah said...

my favorite way to eat jello was always with mandarin oranges and cool whip on top. my mom would make it all the time during the summer!

I've always loved jello! My grandma used to make a jello that had walnuts and mini marshmallows in it - I know that sounds horrible, but I loved it as a kid!

Maybe because it was made with love! :D

I'll link to your giveaway tomorrow!

Leslie said...

Elizabeth said...

Plain red Jello by the spoonfuls out of the fridge.

I love eating Jell-O!

The first time I had my first Jell-O when I studied in Kansas. During that time, there's no Jell-O in Indonesia (but we do have gelatin) but these days, it's very easy to buy it in the local supermarket. Although it's quite pricey but I often buy it, not just because I love eating it but also it brings me nice memory :)

It would be really great to know how to make Jell-O in different ways because I'm always eating it plain.

Melanie said...

Yum, I love jello. My favorite is simple - orange jello with mandarin oranges. Classic staple in my house growing up.

Thanks for the chance at a giveaway!

Oh wow thats awesome. My favourite jello is Strawberry Jello.....Hmmm name itself seduces my tastebuds.....Good Luck everyone.....Happy Spring!

Meg said...

As a kid, I loved raspberry jello. It was fruity and refreshing, and oh so much fun, especially bade into knox Blox to slurp up!

Brenda Campbell said...

As a kid my mother always made us Jell-o parfaits for dessert. My favorite flavor was cherry. She would layer jello cubes, fresh fruit, whipped cream, until the dessert glass was full. Those were the best desserts. She would pair strawberries with strawberry flavor, etc etc those were so good!

Sunkid said...

We call them "Götterspeise" here in Germany which translates them into God's food. No idea why and where this came from! It's great fun shaking them and watching them wiggle! My favourite was always red and green

HoneyB said...

My favorite jello recipe was the jigglers!! I still make them today I loved them so much. I also remember the first time I had the Striped Jello Pudding cake where you pourd pudding over the top of a cake you had poked holes in, and then you also made a frosting with the jello pudding and cool whip. Yumm!

Michele said...

Jello pie -- where you mix cool whip and jello together and pour into a graham cracker crust and freeze. The berry blue one was always my favorite!

NanaLana said...

Watergate Salad! It was made with pistachio jello, walnuts or pecans, and cream cheese. Always present at family reunions!

Eric J. Hoffman said...

There are so many great ways to use Jello! Mmmm

Heidi said...

I loved jello with cool whip. Plain, simple, and yummy :)

TheGourmetGirl said...

One of the few 'semi-homemade' recipes that I will make is either dirt or sand.
Crumbled cookies, pudding and Cool Whip, never mind that addictive taste, it was all about the texture!
Great giveaway!

Sharon said...

My mom always made layered jello which as I child I thought was the greatest thing ever!

Diana said...

I used to love any jello with fruit chunks in it. But fresh fruit, not the canned kind.

Ricardo said...

I loved (still do) pineapple Jell-o after solidified to be cut in cubes, mix with pineapple chunks and pineapple whipped cream refrigerated ...so nice.. happy Jell-o comp.

Green jello was my favorite.

Preppy Pettit said...

I love it!

Typhoid Ashley said...

As a kid I always went for the plain and simple layered jello. Which mom never did of course. It was always at grandma's. She would let us pick our flavors and we would use her clear party cups to create our layers.

samahita said...

My mom used to get this raspberry jello mix from the market which she would let me make. It was so exciting waiting for the jello to set. I just couldn't wait....I would keep checking, so much so that there would be my finger prints all over it! :-)

Tangled Noodle said...

I loved 'stained glass' Jell-O: one packet was mixed with milk so that it was opaque and separately, another flavor was made as usual, which was then cut into cubes and put into the first mix as it was semi-firm. When you cut into it, it looked like a stained glass window!

Lance J. Mayhew said...

Jello beans! I got these mold for jello jelly beans and they were a family hit for years.

Nina Timm said...

I love jello in different colors with runny cream!!! Yummee!! Great book!!!
