Happy 4th of July!

happy 4th of july!

i'm going to a bar-b-q tomorrow and i'm taking a couple of desserts. the first is from pioneer woman... everything she makes is delish and it's so cute so i thought i'd give it a try. 

i couldn't find any small flags at the grocery store so i made my own. 
i made a little tag with my "vintage" dymo... (hee! it was my sis' and she gifted it to me last year) :o)  
the other dessert i made is especially for the kiddos. layered jello! my grammie made this for us every new year.
i used to love pulling apart the layers to eat... wait, what am i saying?? i still love pulling apart the layers to eat! :o) 
my grammie used to make layered jello with 4 different colors, but for the 4th i had to go with red, white, and blue. 

here's the recipe for 2 colors/flavors of jello:
spray a 8x8 pan with pam and then wipe with a paper towel

2 pkgs of different flavor jello
1 can sweetened condensed milk (eagle brand)
4 envelopes plain knox gelatin
4 cups hot water

  • mix 1 pkg jello (A), 1 envelope knox gelatin, and 1 cup hot water
  • mix the other pkg jello (B), 1 envelope knox gelatin, and 1 cup hot water
  • mix condensed milk and 1 cup hot water in a bowl.  in a separate large bowl, mix 2 envelopes knox gelatin and 1 cup hot water.  once both mixtures are dissolved, add condensed milk mixture to gelatin. (C)
  • pour 3/4 cup of A into pan. refrigerate for 20 minutes
  • pour 1 cup C into pan. refrigerate for 30 minutes
  • pour 3/4 cup of B into pan
  • repeat and end with jello
recipe for 4 colors/flavors of jello:
spray a 8x11 or 9x13 pan with pam and wipe with a paper towel

4 pkgs of different flavors of jello (my grammie used to do green, yellow, orange, and red)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
6 envelopes of plain knox gelatin
6 cups of hot water

  • mix 1 pkg jello, 1 envelope knox gelatin, and 1 cup hot water (repeat for all packages)
  • mix condensed milk and 1 cup hot water in a bowl.  in a separate large bowl, mix 2 envelopes knox gelatin and 1 cup hot water.  once both mixtures are dissolved, add condensed milk mixture to gelatin.
  • pour 1 jello mixture into pan. refrigerate for 20 minutes
  • pour 1 cup of milk mixture into pan. refrigerate for 30 minutes
  • continue alternating and end with jello

Layered Jell-o is so fun. I use to make it by using cream cheese in every other layer. Love your blog!!
