lime jello cheesecake flop

don't make me mad, you won't like me when i'm mad....little hulk humor there....

ahhhh, this didn't go so well. it was suppose to be a lime jello cheesecake pudding that i found over at not quite nigella.( lorraine has a wonderful site, a great read, so poke around a bit) well, i am not really sure what went wrong. what i did wrong. the recipe produced a pale green fluff that tasted really delicious. it is sweet, limey, cheesy and pineappley(i know it's not a word). the addition of the crushed pineapple really gives it that extra ump. my problem? the consistency. it didn't set up like i was expecting. i wanted it to be scoopable, but it really didn't get firm or even slightly firm. i am thinking i used the wrong size box of jello, but to be honest, i didn't want to dumpster dive to check. i have made plenty of jello salads in the past, you know the cottage cheese and pineapple combos, but i am crushed(little pineapple humor now) that this one flopped. oh well.....life goes on.
we still ate it, of course.

Oh no, I wonder why it didn't work! I used a Jello packet that Barbara from Barbara Bakes sent me (it was her recipe originally) and it was really good. Perhaps you could take a peek at her recipe and see what may have gone wrong? I hope it wasn't in my adaption :(
