Citrus Jell-O

I like an occasional jello on my dinner plate.  I like jello with fruit, cottage cheese, shredded carrots, whipped cream, you name it.  One of my very jellos I've had lately is this creation.  My sister-in-law makes it whenever my family has a get-together and food is involved.  We all eagerly anticipate her jello reveal.  When it is my turn at the buffet, I know I can't take the amount of her jello that I really want because there are lots of people who want a taste.  So, I emailed her for a copy of her recipe and she graciously sent it the same day.  I made it for Easter and topped it with freshly whipped cream...come to think of it, it's more of a dessert than a side dish.  Shh...I won't tell anyone.  It's citrus-y and creamy and fruity and delicious.

 Please remember I'm using my point and shoot 'cuz my Cannon is still at the camera doctor.
