This is actually my mother-in-law’s recipe. It was one of my son’s favorite jello’s that she made. Soooo, it was always known as “Grandma’s Strawberry Jello” 🙂
So, if you look closely at the jello, you can see some white-ish lumps off to the side of the 9X13. This is what happens when you dont pay attention and rush through making the jello. Be sure to blend well!! (PS…it still tasted great)
I can thank the hubby for the nice plate hold 😀
