Household Quickie - Square Muffins

I found this item via my membership at eVite, the online invitation and party ideas scene. Square muffins are apparently all the rage with the party set and in-the-know home chefs. I dunno about that; will check it with my foodie friend Sarah.

In any case, eVite had some great ideas for other uses for square muffin pans.

1) individual brownies - no cutting
2) individual Thanksgiving stuffing portions - everyone gets a crunchy top
3) square muffins stand out in a crowd at potluck parties

If these sound like a good idea to you, you can order square muffin pans from Kitchen Krafts.

My favorite idea for using these square muffin pans (or any muffin tins for that matter) is to freeze unused wine. Wine cubes are a much easier way to get wine into soups, stews and stir frys than uncorking a new bottle every time you make a recipe that calls for a 1/2 cup of wine. What are you supposed to do with the rest of the bottle? Drink it every time? Cook with wine too often and before you know it you'll have an addiction problem on your hands. Frozen wine cubes are a better idea.
