How’s that for a Happy Second Birthday, Between the Layers!!
Happy Birthday! Your emails are bright spots in my inbox each week. I look forward to them eagerly and am not exaggerating when I tell you that I can't decide on a favorite.
Thank you Anne for sharing your wonderful recipes and, more importantly, your thoughts and experiences. It connects us not only as cooks and bakers, but human beings.
I love my Tupperware with a burning passion! It’s the best, hands down. I have been buying it and using it since the early 80s, and all my pieces are still great. I will truly grieve if they go out of business.
My Junior Girl Scouts here in New Jersey were working on their Thinking Day patch which was for Australia. Finding a recipe online, gathering ingredients, the girls made the cookies (Golden syrup was found at Wegman's supermarket and the dissected coconut at Whole foods). It was a big hit with the girls and the parents were also given some to try. At a later jamboree, the girls displayed what they created for Austrailia and made cookies. They did a great job and learned the history of the ANZAC cookie
Thanks. I’ve just baked your pistachio chocolate Bundt cake .
It’s a hit with neighbours & friends!
Re: Anzac cookies. I presume any oats can be used except steel cut?
My mother, older sister and I worked third shift (11pm-7am) at Tupperware's "largest injection molding plant in the world" in Blackstone Mass in the mid-60s. It was just a summer job for us but we had a lot of fun! Can't imagine doing that hot, tedious work all the time... Even today, I love my Tupperware. The only gripe I have is that the old square canister lids split and need to be replaced regularly. AND, you can only get them at a party! Many of mine are duct-taped! I will be sorry if Tupperware dies.
Happy Birthday to your wonderful newsletter, Anne! Here’s to many more!
Yes I still fine my rather ancient Tupperware indispensable.I find your variety of topics so interesting . I shall visit your shores later in the year but sadly not nearby for a sample of your delicious cake.Julie.
Happy Anniversary on the newsletter, I enjoy reading every week. I do like Tupperware! I have some from my mom and aunt with 1954 on the lid! I have bought many pieces too, and thankfully it lasts. I did learn (when I got a dishwasher) that the older lids could warp. That made me sad but I still use. Thanks for all you write and do!
Congratulations on two years of your newsletter--the magical treat I look forward to each week. And your Tupperware article was a memory-laden delight to savor. I did a double-take last month when I passed a display in Target and now I’m seeing the storageware everywhere!
Always so appreciative of your content and happy to celebrate this milestone with you! Why yes, those cookies will be a great way to do so. Fascinating background info into how they came to be, their name and also the Tupperware article. Your emails are chock full of goodies, as BethP stated, bright spots for an otherwise drab inbox! Keep up the great work, Anne!!! XOXO
I don't think I've had ANZAC cookies, but I know I would enjoy the flavor combination.
I don't have vintage tupperware, but I do have pieces I've accumulated throughout my married years. I guess I didn't realize or didn't think about them having BPA. Perhaps I should rethink using the pieces I have, but I don't actually use it often.
Strawberry shortcake has been popular today in my emails.
Congrats on this milestone, Anne! I really enjoy your newsletter--recipes, reminiscences, life wisdom, opinions and all. Every time you post a new one, that becomes my new favorite.
I’ve never made Anzac biscuits, but enjoyed learning their history, and the strawberry shortcake in your first post looks like a winner too. My list of things I want to bake from your recipes just keeps getting longer and longer!😊
Several years ago we were in New Zealand and were fortunate enough to see an incredible exhibit on the ANZAC troops in Gallipoli during WWI. It was probably the most moving museum exhibit I have ever been privileged to see. Having your ANZAC biscuit recipe almost brought me to tears remembering the hardships those troops and the doctors/nurses experienced. THANK YOU so much for sharing. I will definitely go in to my kitchen and try to adjust these to my 9400 foot altitude! And, I just have to say, "YOU GO GIRL!" and continue your writing on the gun issues we face here in the USA. (Sorry not to comment earlier, but we have been away.) You are a breath of fresh air!
I am a Tupperware fan! I have 3 of their cake safes/carriers, all different sizes. I love their round pie safe or cupcake holder. It stores leftover pizza perfectly! I usually line my older pieces with wax paper or parchment before putting pizza slices inside! I also love Mrs. Maisel and all of her great retro items, from Pyrex to clothing! Thank you for a new cookie recipe to try out, Anne.
