If there is one serving bowl that I would recommend you buy, it would definitely be a trifle bowl. And no, you don’t need to be British to have one, at least I don’t think so!
Everything just looks so much better in this bowl. Maybe that’s because it’s on a pedestal. That makes so much sense! My legs look a lot better in high heeled shoes. I guess that little bit of lift really makes a difference.
Anyway, back to the trifle. Some other things you could do with it are make layered salads, a 7-layered bean dip, and of course trifle desserts. This recipe is so easy and makes for a great presentation. I love bringing this to potlucks because it looks like it took forever to make. So not the case!
