I was both drooling and gaining weight just reading about this recipe. Thank you for sharing!!!

I still have problems how to figure out the best way to make Jello that won't flop, but I actually might give this recipe the old college try.

Have a great holiday season.

I love any dessert that includes lemon. :-) Thank you for the recipe!

Thank you also for the wonderful SantaThing gift! I opened it up last night when I got home from work and was delighted with what I found. Both are books I am sure I will enjoy. Thank you!

I really like your blog, by the way!

Have a Merry Christmas!
