Jello

Billy and I love jello. Our kids love jello. It's one of those things we swore off except for a rare treat in our attempt to not eat things that make us sick and crazy.

This week I got a box of Knox gelatin, and on the back was a recipe for gelatin squares made with fruit juice. Now I know that diehard health food fanatics don't like gelatin either, but I say it's a lot better than jello. I tried the recipe and it was perfect. Shimmery, jiggly, beautifully transparent in the dessert cup. It was also fast and easy. So if you're trying to cut sugars, artifial sweeteners, and dyes out of your diet, buy a box of Knox and give it a try! My kids slurped it right down!

Wow, I'll have to try that! Stephen and I aren't big jello eaters, but I know Ethan would love it. Do you think you could mold it like jello?

It looked pretty moldable. The squares definitely held their shape.
