Definitely try this one--it is not a typical jello salad. I folded real whipped cream into it rather than topping with Cool Whip. I took it to Christmas dinner at Grandma's and not a spoonful was left. YUMMY. Read More

For some reason my children wouldn't eat this. That makes it somewhat of a failure in my book although I thought it tasted fine. Read More

Small town problem - couldn't find apricot jello so we substituted orange and it was a hit. Can be served in small portions because it is rich. Read More
