Happy New Year! We are going to start the new year off bright! I’m back from my holiday hiatus and thank you for your patience and well wishes while I took some time to be with my family during the holidays. After the loss of my Mother in November, it was a quiet Christmas. As she would have wanted it, we did giggle and share her traditions that she passed down to us. In looking at the photos later – I saw the sadness in everyone’s eyes as we made it through the holidays.
Today I’m sharing with you one of our traditions that graces the holiday table each year.
It’s colorful, it’s fun and it takes like gumdrops!
Easy to make but you’ll need to do it when you’re home with a few hours on your hands to let each layer set.
The white layer is gelatin, milk, sugar and sour cream, adding a creamy texture to the dish. If you’re watching calories in the new year, you can easily make it with sugar free jello and have no guilt!
