TOP 500 REVIEWERon March 10, 2012
Jell-O is such a fascinating thing for little kids and when I visit my family in the mid-west, no dinner would be complete without some form of Jell-O salad. When I was stationed in England, every child's birthday party had to have jelly (Jell-O), so it has never lost it's popularity in with some groups. Victoria Belanger attempts to spread its status. She wrote an excellent introduction that will make you want to create Jell-O.
There are about 50 recipes in the book. It contains some excellent tips, tools and techniques for making Jell-O. Recipes include; suspended fruit, creamy, boozy, fruit and cream layered, seasonal holiday, Americana and other favorites and vegan. There are some pictures. More could have been included, especially in a recipe like Brains that is done for Halloween. There are conversion charts and an index

Many recipes use unflavored gelatin with added flavors such as pomegranate juice or green ice tea. There is a little bit told about each recipe. Many of the recipes will require patience, even she says the classic rainbow mold "would cause Tibetan monks to tear out their hair", there are others that come close to that exasperation.
We have liked two of the boozy varieties; sparkling champagne and strawberries and raspberry cosmo. Guests are most impressed and pleasantly surprised at such a different and nice looking desserts.
This is a book for those that are not necessarily experienced cooks, but ones who can follow directions and have some patience to be successful with these recipes.
