After accidentally cracking my trifle bowl a few years ago, my sister Renatta replaced it for me this year for Christmas. I'm anxious to make my favorite a href="http://www.thesweetslife.com/2010/01/raspberry-amaretto-trifle.html"Raspberry Amaretto Trifle/a again (pictured above), but am on the hunt for additional trifle recipes and/or uses for the bowl. Please share recipes in the comments! /spanbr /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-1Z-DvDlzSeo/UOTxceT51iI/AAAAAAAAHrk/dNYVcGVXWM/s1600/photo+(16).JPG" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" height="400" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-1Z-DvDlzSeo/UOTxceT51iI/AAAAAAAAHrk/dNYVcGVXWM/s400/photo+(16).JPG" width="300" //a/divspan4. While in Chicago over Christmas, my sister Renatta, my parents, Ryan, and I got to eat at a href="http://www.girlandthegoat.com/"Girl & The Goat/a. This was mine and Ryan's second time there and I was so excited to share the dining experience with some of my family. I can't even describe how amazing it was--though a totally different menu than when we'd been a year and a half earlier, each dish was incredibly inventive and flavorful. Stephanie Izard truly has some talent and while I love a lot of restaurants, I'm pretty sure Girl & The Goat is at the top of my list! I will continue to take advantage of eating there whenever I can and recommend you do the same, even if it means taking a 5 pm or a 9 pm reservation (the two times I've booked). /spanbr /!--[if gte
