This year, finally being a Texas resident, I hit the kitchen to whip something up to take with me. I made Old Fashioned Ginger Bread and lemon curd from scratch. [I love Ina Garten's recipes!)
Then I did my usual "consult multiple recipes, then make up my own" and came up with Blackberry Tiramisu Trifle.
Pampered Chef trifle bowl! It is a little pricey, but it is made of thick, tempered glass, it doesn't "sink" in the middle, so the layers stay even and it has a removable stand and fitted plastic cover for easy storage and transport! (Sheesh, you would think I was getting a commission.)
Completely aside: Notice the Kitchenaid mixer in the background. These two items alone were worth getting married for! (Also, I'm madly in love with Hubby, so that works out.) I am a super sucker for kitchen gadgets. I may be the only one I know who swoons over immersion mixers and milk frothers. After Hubby proposed my first thought was, "I get to spend the rest of my life with this wonderful man!!" My second thought was, "I get to REGISTER!"
So that's your dose of sweet for now. Enjoy the holiday weekend folks!!
