Since Valentine’s Day is the first holiday of the year that uses a color, let’s start
there with this simple recipe. OK?
2 3-ounce packages red Jell-O (strawberry, cherry or raspberry)
2 cups boiling water
1 cup cold pineapple juice
Mix Jell-O with boiling water. Stir until well blended. Stir in cold pineapple juice. Refrigerate until congealed.
1 large can crushed pineapple, drained
8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
1 ½ cups pecans, finely chopped
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 pint cream, whipped
Mix all ingredients and spread over the congealed layer.
Repeat first layer and allow it to reach the consistency of egg whites. Pour over second layer. Congeal and serve.
Easter, use pastel colors! Lemon Jell-O for first layer and lime Jell-O for
Memorial Day or 4th of July use red Jell-O and berry blue Jell-O for red,
white and blue!
Halloween and Thanksgiving use orange to fit the pumpkin color scheme.
Christmas is always red.
