Question of the week:

Do you have any recipe you make for religious reasons–ie to celebrate a religious holiday or to teach kids something about the faith or to help you remember something about your faith or as a prayer?

This is tough. I don’t have a specific recipe to celebrate holidays, per se, but I do try to gear menus to them. I make corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick’s day and try to do a little something for the various feast days but I don’t have particular recipes. Last year I got a recipe for a Resurrection Cake through a guest post, and for Easter every year I usually make a Strawberry-Pineapple Jello mold but it has no religious significance. Also, we make a Jesus birthday cake every year for Christmas but have no specific recipe for it.

Strawberry-Pineapple Jello Mold

This is one of my mother-in-law’s recipes.  Happy St. Valentine’s Day!

Recipe: Strawberry-Pineapple Jello Mold

Ingredients:

  • 1 large box of strawberry jello
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 pint (16 oz) sour cream
  • 1 large can pineapple, strained

Instructions:

  1. Mix jello and pineapple into boiling water.
  2. Add sour cream and mix well.
  3. Pour into your favorite mold pan and refrigerate overnight or at least 4-5 hours until jello is set completely.

Quick Notes:

My mother-in-law usually makes this with lime jello, but you can use any of your favorite jello flavors that compliments the pineapple.
