It’s National Jell-O Week

You’ve probably heard of the Bible Belt, maybe the Sun Belt, but have you heard of the Jell-O Belt? Well folks, I live in Utah – smack dab in the middle of the Jell-O Belt.

We take Jell-O very seriously ’round these parts.  We eat our Jell-O plain, with fruit, carrots, whip cream and we eat more of it than any other state in the nation.

In 2001, the state legislature even named Jell-O the state snack food. About that same time, the second week of February was declared Jell-O Week.

So, it’s only fitting I start out the week by sharing my favorite Jell-O recipe – it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day.

This recipe is surprisingly simple and doesn’t require a lot of prep…In fact, this is a Jell-O recipe that can be served as soon as you’ve prepared it!

Easy-peasy Jell-O squeezy!

    My whole family loves this. My mom makes it for every big occasion. My husband however is not a fan. Haha. So usually i only eat it when I go to my moms house.

    Is it weird that I only like plain cherry jello? Maybe with a dab of whip cream
