What's not to like about JELL-O? It shakes and shimmies, comes in a wide range of flavors and cool colors, and it can be mixed with all sorts of other foods. For over a hundred years children and adults have enjoyed this special treat that can be fashioned into salads, desserts or just jiggly snacks.

For those who desire some new ways of using JELL-O, this book contains a series of recipes, tested by the folks in the official JELL-O kitchens, that will be a hit with both friends and family.

The recipes are illustrated with colorful photos and the easy-to-follow instructions are a snap to follow. While some of these recipes are so easy a child can handle them, there are others that are a tad more detailed and geared more for adults.

Page through the book and you'll discover desserts such as Lemon Charlotte with Raspberry Sauce, Cherry Revel, and Light 'N Fruity Strawberry Pie.

Looking for a salad to take to a potluck? Try the Cherry Waldorf Salad, Fiesta Carrot Pineapple Salad or a Cherry Topped Eggnog Ring for a holiday event.

The novelty recipes for children range from unique puddings, lollipop jiggles and parfaits to shakes and smoothies.

Pay close attention to the chill time listed for each recipe. While some chill times are quite short, others require an overnight stay in the refrigerator. Don't hedge here because you want the gelatin to set up properly.

Take this opportunity to rediscover the fun of making and consuming these delicious, refreshing treats. Why not host a JELL-O party this summer and see what your friends bring to the table?
