last night we had my parents and nana over for dinner. the guys went pheasant hunting awhile back, and wanted to cook up some of their kill. mom and i weren't as enthusiastic about it, but she found a recipe for a raspberry reduction sauce to serve with it. it was actually a good complement to the dry little birdies. i made pie for dessert, and wanted to share this super easy recipe! it would be a good dish to celebrate mother's day, hint hint.
it's from southern living's feb 2010 issue, and it is so good. i even used a frozen pie crust, still delish. basically, melt 6 sq. unsweetened chocolate, then stir in a 14 oz. can of fat free sweetened condensed milk, and let sit for 2 minutes. then fold in half a tub of cool whip. cover and chill, then top with the rest of the cool whip. super rich and fudgy. although i may try it with semisweet next time. let me know if you try it! we loved it!
another good idea for mom is this gardener's hand scrub. i mixed some up using green apple dish soap, and it smells good AND works on ground in dirt. since i never can find my gloves when i want to plant flowers, this has a permanent spot next to my sink. i also made a few jars to give as prizes at bunco next week, and for mom's day.
