I just celebrated my 39th wedding anniversary and I’m still standing by my man…in lieu of the gifts I received.
Gifts to Me
What, you say…are you crazy? After all those years and you get a weird cake pan and a rolling pin??!! Well, I do have to respect the guy – he tries so hard to please me. We did have a lovely resort night on the mid-coast of Maine overlooking Penobscot Bay. And, he does understand my need to try new things….Hey, I’m talking about in the kitchen.
This crazy pan was tempting me, so I decided to test it. I made edible brownie bowls using a brownie box mix as recommended by the directions.
They popped out of the pan with no trouble
Hubby gets the one with caramel pudding and chocolate drizzle
I get the one with vanilla pudding and fresh raspberry sauce
Raspberry Sauce – Quick Method
Buy or pick fresh raspberries. Rinse with cold water and drain. Place in a bowl and sprinkle with a bit of sugar. Next, squish them and mix in sugar so that mixture is syrupy. I leave the seeds, but it could be strained through a cheese cloth. Pour in some raspberry wine and chill.*
*If you have a special raspberry sauce that you would like to share, send me a comment via this post.
Gift to Hubby – the granite squares
As for the rolling pin I received, it was a replacement for my old one that broke 2 years ago with promises of fixing. It is considered fixed now. I think I’ll grab a chilled bottle of wine and use his gift while thinking of a way to use that new rolling pin.
