My childhood is full of holiday memories that include my Grandma Doerman's super lime jello. But, I remember it especially on Easter with ham and homemade rolls. I've carried on the tradition, serving it on Easter at our house each year. But, really it's fabulous anytime. Even for breakfast. The morning after.
Check me out rocking that awesome denim jumper next to Grandma D. This was on the Sunday I was baptised.
