I found myself in a local Pier One Imports recently (and only because they're going out of business and everything in the store is at least 20% off) and came upon a kitchen staple - a glass trifle bowl. If you don't have one in your pantry, you should certainly consider the investment. What I've found is they aren't expensive at all! The one that I spotted on Pier One's shelves was $10 minus the 20% discount. At $8, you owe it to yourself to own one.
I've had my trifle bowl for nearly as long as I've been married (approaching 9 years). It's always come in handy for whipping up a last minute berry-centric dessert. Fresh berries, custard, lady fingers, a fancy liqueur cordial...throw some flour on your brow and you'll win rave reviews! If you find juuuuussstttt the right recipe, you'll also realize how inexpensive trifled desserts are.
Some recipes to get you started my dears:
Are YOU trifle-ING? Have you a trifle bowl in your pantry? Any recipes to mention or share?
