Happy Earth Day


We have a gorgeous planet, look at the beauty all around us! Ok, it does help that I live in a very “green” country! I just love Germany!! What did you do in honor of Earth Day?? Start recycling? Plant a tree? Tend your garden?? Either way, just stop and take a look around and admire mother nature and all her beauty!

oh, and Happy Birthday to me! I am officially.. no longer in my “mid” 20’s I guess.. since 27 is on the southern slope to the big 3-0!!


Raenbow Jell-O


I tried this recipe for the first time last Easter, and decided since it was such a hit, we were going to start having it around every Easter… Thanks to my dear friend Kim here is the recipe its called Raenbow Jell-O!!

Whatcha need:

6-3oz boxes in Jell-O in rainbow colors (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Purple)

18 oz. of plain yogurt


How to make this:

Place 1 cup of boiling water into a bowl and add one package Jell-O.  Stir until dissolved and divide into two containers.  It is about 2/3 cup of liquid into each container.  Whisk 1/3 cup yogurt to one container and 3 tablespoons cold water into the other.


Pour the yogurt container into a 9 X 13 and allow to set then slowly pour the "clear" Jell-O on top of the yogurt layer.  Repeat with all the boxes of Jell-O making sure to place the colors to create a rainbow.





Andddddd… this is what you get:


The only part that takes a bit of time is the setting of each layer, but it is so worth it! Now, it would be a perfect addition to any fun occasion, especially during the summer months when you want a nice refreshing cold dish! Enjoy!!
