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


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


  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.
