A Little Bit of the Mormon Showing Through
If you know a Mormon, you know that Jello is a big thing in their culture. Why? I was raised by them and I still have no idea.
Last weekend I was invited to a girls only dinner party. Everyone was assigned to bring something and my assignment was dessert. Normally I’d pick up a cheesecake or some donuts at the store and call it good, but the girls hosting the party are all foodies! They LOVE to cook which is totally awesome because I get to eat their yummy cooking but also lame because then I feel like my store bought goodness is not adequatly made with love.
Truth be told, the girls really wouldn’t have cared what I brought. It’s more the competitive cooking gene those damn Mormons implanted in my brain through all of those young womens activities.
So, here it is (my mother will be so proud). Proof I cooked… a jello dessert.
This in not just any jello dessert, mind you, this is a THREE LAYER jello dessert!
All to make THIS:
Obviously I’m no Julia Child, but my foodie friend was impressed enough to post the recipe on her foodie blog, which totally made my day.
