  1. I love this. I used raspberry jello, pineapple & mandarin oranges. Next time I'll try it with the strawberries as angelfan suggested - I'm betting that it would be sooo good that way too.
  2. I rate this five stars for simple, easy, fruity,tasty, and quick! I used strawberry jello, and frozen strawberrys, thawed and drained. Also did this with lite cool whip. The flavor was very light and fruity, not a heavy sugary taste. Itwas so easy to make I will for sure be making it again, Will think of Martha every time I make this.
  3. This a very light and tasty dessert. Quick and easy too. I used orange-pineapple jello and crushed pineapple, delicious. Rest in God's love and care Martha.
  4. I've made this for 30 years--my favorite is with orange jello and crushed pineapple--taste like a dreamsicle


(As many of you know Silent Cricket passed away on Feb. 29. Since she loved Recipezaar so much and so many on Recipezaar have shown their love for her, and have enjoyed her recipes, her personal information will remain here indefinitely just as she wrote it. Her lines at the end of this section sound somewhat prophetic as the last chapter of her earthly existence has been written.) Well, the time has come for me to change my users' name. After being, "OzCoMartha" because of having lived for three years in Australia and then moving to Colorado, I have decided to "turn over a new leaf." I chose this name because many moons ago I used to be able to "chirp" like a cricket and the "silent" refers to the present time when I'm taking a break...But, perhaps after a season, however long I decide that needs to be, I may be back and then I will fill in more details about myself...
