How do they get salads to unmold anyway? I made a beautiful peach gelatin with leftover peaches, and I really wanted to unmold it so the peaches were on the bottom, gelatin on the top and I could fill the center with whipped topping. Didn't happen, as you can see. Stuck to the mold, so I scooped it out and we enjoyed it with our grilled ham and cheese sandwiches for lunch.

I take it back that Sausage Apple Pie is the worst recipe ever. Sorry Dad, but I'm still going to malign your fav recipe. It is gross, but I found a recipe that has to be worse, and I haven't ever tasted it. Actually I don't think I could ever bring myself to waste perfectly good ingredients on this recipe.

2 3-oz packages lemon flavored gelatin

The caption above the photo reads "Sour cream sauce mix, lemon juice, and dillweed combine with lemon-flavored gelatin to produce the distinctive flavors in Sweet-Sour chicken Mold." Distinctive? Looks and sounds like molded puke to me! I love that they tell you to cover the blender before starting. This is one of the recipes in my Better Homes and Gardens- After Work Cook Book that I won't be trying. Still it was a great buy for $1 at the library.
