If you're anything like me, holiday time means more cooking and baking than usual and in my house, that usually means at least one of my favorite kitchen toys dies. Last year it was my Sunbeam mixmaster. I had been coveting red Kitchenaid mixers for some time, but couldn't bring myself to replace my old sunbeam. After all it did the job, plus my mother had bought it for me years ago. I wrote all about it here if you're interested.
DeLonghi Coffee Maker that takes up less space and makes equally delicious coffee that stays warm without over cooking.
But naturally, that wasn't the end of it. For Rosh Hashanah I made a delicious apple cake using my favorite springform tube pan. The bottom makes a lovely bundt-like impression when you turn the cake or whatever over. Fortunately, the spring latch came off when I was removing the cake from the pan rather than when it was batter in the oven. I shudder at what that would have been like to clean up. Now the star of the Yom Kippur Break Fast meal is the Praline Luckshen kugel (noodle pudding), so I really need my pan NOW - no time for ordering on line. I could go into the painful saga of hunting for it, but I'll spare you. Suffice to say I went to six different places before I finally found it.
Kaiser Springform Panwith 2 bottoms - a regular flat one, great for cheese cakes, and this bundt-like tube pan great for cakes and of course the kugel.
I wonder what else I'll need to replace before Monday's meal.
