miscellaneous monday…NEW stuff i gotta share

Happy Monday!

Isn’t this a fun tablescape? My friend hosted an event at her house recently and I had to post about this NEW (to me), incredibly yummy Pumpkin Crunch recipe. See the little cupcake holders under the Ferrero Rocher chocolates? Instead of cupcakes, she put in some Pumpkin Crunch dessert. Then, when it was time for dessert, she just passed around a can of spray whip cream for people to put on top of the crunch. How easy and perfect is that?!?

Here’s the recipe, but obviously she didn’t frost it with the cream cheese frosting: https://www.holoholokauaiboattours.com/blog/hawaiian-style-pumpkin-crunch/

Another food-related thing is my NEW proofing box. Many of you may know Leanne Cole’s blog. Well, I’m a huge fan of having the right tools for the job, and I’ve been wanting to learn to make and bake with sourdough for a long time. After reading her post, I purchased a proofing box, and I’ve been baking bread and other items with sourdough!

One of these days, I’ll get a really pretty loaf and actually photograph it, rather than just a snapshot! :o)

Here’s the proofing box I bought. As Leanne mentioned, it’s a bit expensive…for a box! But it is a great tool.

Since this miscellany monday seems to be all about food, I’ll share this last NEW hack I learned recently. So, I’ve been wanting (but putting off getting) these cookie sheet stacker-divider thingamajiggers:

BUT…someone hacked a (maybe) better solution – definitely a cheaper solution! They simply laid two flat pieces of wood over the cookie sheet. Probably like a long paint-stirring stick. I’m gonna try it. I’ll let you know whether I still want the fancy ones or not.

That’s it for today’s miscellany. Have a great week and do or learn something NEW!
