William Bounds’ Pumpkin & Gingerbread Trifle

William Bounds' Grainware Trifle Bowl

Dating back to the sixteenth century, trifle has pleased after-dinner crowds since shortly before the first American Thanksgiving in 1621.  Trifle is a dessert typically made with custard, fruit, and sponge cake, although gelatin can be used as a variation.  This attractive layered treat makes a statement with its color and intricacy, making it a focal point of modern holiday tables.

An attractive dessert deserves to be served in an attractive dish, like William Bounds’ Grainware Trifle Bowl.  Stylish and practical, this 120-ounce trifle bowl has the appearance of fine crystal and the durability of acrylic.  With the Grainware Trifle Bowl to showcase trifle as functional art, it’s easy to see how trifle has become a masterpiece of dessert.  This Thanksgiving, try a trifle recipe that combines two holiday favorites: pumpkin and gingerbread.



2 packages gingerbread mix (14 oz each), prepared and cooled

5-oz box vanilla pudding mix, prepared and cooled

30-oz can pumpkin pie filling

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/3 tsp cinnamon, ground with William Bounds’ Cinnamon Mill

12-oz frozen whipped topping

1/2 cup ginger cookies, crushed


To cooled pudding, add pumpkin pie filling, brown sugar, and cinnamon.

In bottom of Grainware Trifle Bowl, crumble half of prepared gingerbread.  Gently pour half of the pudding mixture over the gingerbread in the bowl.  Spread a layer of whipped topping over the pudding.  Repeat layers.  (For a decorative touch: Pipe the final layer of whipped topping with an icing bag.)  Sprinkle crushed ginger cookies on top.

Refrigerate overnight before serving.

Delicious and Easy Roasted Garlic Recipes!

William Bounds' Sili Gourmet Garlic Roaster

Say good-bye to roasting garlic in messy, wasteful aluminum foil!  The Sili Gourmet Garlic Roaster from William Bounds takes the fuss out of roasting garlic.  Whole garlic heads or individual cloves easily fit inside the roaster, which is made of porcelain and heat- and odor-resistant silicone.  The roaster can be placed in the oven to create perfectly roasted garlic in 30–40 minutes.  What sets the Sili Gourmet Garlic Roaster apart is its versatility—it can also roast garlic in the microwave, in approximately 5–7 minutes on low heat.

Roasting garlic brings out a rich, sweet flavor much milder than the sharp flavor of unroasted garlic.  Roasting also causes garlic to take on a smooth, buttery texture that makes it easy to spread.  Roasted garlic can make a creative substitute in most dishes calling for garlic and it is also great on its own as an appetizer or spread.  Try the smooth flavor of roasted garlic in these delicious recipes.



2 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless

Salt and pepper

2 tsp olive oil

6 garlic cloves, peeled

1/2 onion, sliced

1 1/2 medium carrots, sliced

1 medium potato, peeled and sliced

1 tomato, sliced

1 tsp favorite dried spice

2 tbsp champagne, dry white wine, chicken broth, or apple juice


Preheat oven to 350°F.  Line a 9”x13” baking pan with aluminum foil.  Spray foil with nonstick cooking spray.

Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper, to taste, and place on foil.  Dip garlic cloves in olive oil and lay on top of chicken.  Then, place onion slices on top of chicken, followed by carrot slices, potato slices, and tomato slices.  Sprinkle with favorite dried spice.  Drizzle remaining olive oil over top and finish with champagne, wine, broth, or juice.

Fold foil to snugly encase chicken and vegetables.  Bake one hour or until center of chicken is no longer pink.



1 medium head of garlic

1 tbsp olive oil

2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and quartered

4 tbsp butter, softened

1/2 cup milk

Salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 350°F.  Drizzle garlic with olive oil and place in Sili Gourmet Garlic Roaster.  Bake approximately 40 minutes or until garlic is soft and pliable.

In the meantime, bring a large pot of salted water to boil.  Add potatoes and cook 15 minutes or until tender.  Drain potatoes.  When cool, coarsely chop potatoes and stir in butter, milk, salt, and pepper.

Remove garlic from oven and slice garlic head in half.  Squeeze cloves into the potatoes.  Blend  potatoes and garlic with an electric mixture until desired consistency is reached.



1/2 cup garlic cloves, peeled

4 tsp olive oil, divided

1 large butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into 3-inch chunks

1 tsp kosher salt

1/4 tsp pepper

5 tbsp unsalted butter

24 sage leaves


Preheat oven to 400°F.

Toss squash with 3 tsp olive oil, salt, and pepper.  Place on baking sheet and roast one hour, turning pieces until they are brown and tender.  While the squash begins roasting, coat garlic with 1 tsp olive oil and place in Sili Gourmet Garlic Roaster.  Bake next to squash approximately 40 minutes or until garlic is soft and pliable.

Five minutes before the squash is finished baking, melt butter over medium heat.  Add sage leaves and cook 2–3 minutes until butter is lightly browned and sage leaves begin to crisp.  Remove from heat.

Place squash and roasted garlic in a large serving dish.  Top with browned butter and sage leaves.

The Hidden Health Benefits of Tea

William Bounds' Sili Gourmet Tea Ball

Be honest.  On your way to work this morning, did you stop by the local coffeehouse to pick up a cup of java?  If you did, you’re not alone (as you could probably tell from the line)—more than half of Americans drink coffee every day.  But coffeehouse drinks are expensive and often laden with calories.  Plus coffee, by nature, is full of caffeine, which gives you that morning kick start.  Did you know substituting tea for coffee can still give you that boost of energy and be a more healthful alternative?

Tea has long been revered for its health benefits and, if you’re a coffee drinker, it can cut your caffeine intake by over half.  One cup of green or black tea delivers more antioxidants than coffee delivers—even more than a serving of carrots, broccoli, or spinach!  Green tea may contribute to weight loss, more than regular caffeine, because it contains compounds that accelerate calorie burning, including burning fat calories.  Green tea also contains a powerful cancer-fighting antioxidant that inhibits the growth of cancerous cells.  Black tea may lower the risk of heart disease, because it prevents blood from clumping and forming clots.  Tea has many other health implications, including lowering “bad” cholesterol, increasing bone strength, slowing aging, and relieving arthritis pain.  If you’re ready to make the switch, William Bounds offers a number of products to have you brewing the perfect cup of tea in no time.

Why not try a loose-leaf tea, which contains more antioxidants than bagged teas, made with lower-quality powdered leaves?  The Sili Gourmet Tea Ball is ideal for preparing single cups of perfectly steeped loose-leaf tea.  A silicone cap makes adding and removing tea leaves simple, and smaller holes keep those leaves inside the tea ball.  When you’re ready to remove the tea ball, grab the silicone bulb, which will always be cool to the touch.  The Sili Gourmet Tea Ball is constructed with quality stainless steel and silicone, making it nonstaining, heat resistant, dishwasher safe, and most important, durable.  As a fun bonus, the Sili Gourmet Tea Ball offers a color to complement every kitchen: aqua, orange, pink, or green.

To brew a larger pot of tea, try the Sili Tea Me.  This durable silicone tea strainer won’t take on unsightly stains like other tea strainers can.  It is also dishwasher safe and easy to clean.  Use the Sili Tea Me with a teapot by putting loose-leaf tea directly into the teapot and pouring the tea through the Sili Tea Me to catch any leaves.  To use the Sili Tea Me with individual teacups, place tea in the Sili Tea Me and pour water through it and into the cup.

If you’re used to those sugary coffeehouse drinks, adding sugar or honey to tea may help sweeten your palette.  William Bounds Heritage Palm Sugar with Alor Vanilla, made with coconut palm nectar and fresh vanilla beans, adds a sweet touch with the gentle flavor of vanilla.  Honey is also a popular sweetener, and can be easily added to tea with the William Bounds Sili Honey Jar with Dripper.  This attractive set consists of a glass jar with a stainless steel and silicone lid attached to a silicone honey dripper.  The dripper’s deep grooves attract more honey and release it in a controlled flow.  Because the dripper is made of nonporous, heat-resistant silicone, it can be used to stir honey directly into your tea without absorbing odors or flavors into the dripper.

Inject Your Turkey in 2010!

When it comes to turkey talk, most of us know how to baste. Ah, basting—that wondrous process of opening the oven every 20 minutes to spread sauce with a glorified paintbrush whose disheveled bristles occasionally shed on to the turkey. It’s not glamorous, but many cooks swear by this method to achieve a moist and flavorful turkey; however, if repeatedly sticking your hands inside a hot oven isn’t on your bucket list, it might be time to try injecting your turkey.

A food injector is a large needle used to inject sauce directly into the meat, rather than to brush it over the top. When using an injector on turkey, insert the needle into the meatiest parts of the thighs and breasts. Don’t push in too far! As the sauce is released into the bird, slowly pull out the needle so the sauce spreads more evenly. A little injection sauce goes a long way toward flavor and eliminates the need to baste during cooking.

Whether you swear by basting or injecting your bird, William Bounds Sili Gourmet Baster/Injector Set, featured on The Today Show, is the last tool you’ll ever need to get the job done. The set features a stainless steel tube crowned by a flat-topped silicone bulb, which allows the unit to stand upright on the counter and eliminates drippy messes. For you basters, there’s a state-of-the-art basting attachment, which features widely spaced, ball-headed silicone bristles that will never shed on to your turkey. Because the bristles are silicone, they’re dishwasher safe and easy to clean, unlike traditional basting brushes that can get food wedged in the bristles. For you injectors, there’s a needle attachment to suit all your flavor-injection needs. This set is a dream for recipes that call for both injecting and basting! Basters and injectors alike can appreciate how the Sili Gourmet Baster/Injector Set’s easy-to-use, easy-to-clean features can enhance their cooking experience. Why not give it a try on some of William Bounds’ favorite turkey injection sauces?



1 can chicken broth
3 oz garlic oil
1 tbsp salt
4 tbsp hot sauce
1 tsp cayenne
3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce


Mix all ingredients. About 24 hours before turkey is to be cooked, inject sauce into turkey throughout all meaty portions.



1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup water
3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp salt
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp ground bay leaf
1 tsp ground thyme
1 tsp ground sage
1 tsp black pepper


In a small saucepan, combine all ingredients and simmer three minutes, stirring. For best results, inject sauce into bird several hours before cooking.



1 cup turkey stock
1 cup orange juice
1 tbsp orange zest
1 tbsp lemon zest
1/4 cup kosher salt
2 tbsp light brown sugar


In a small saucepan, combine ingredients and boil for five minutes. Stir until the salt and sugar completely dissolve. Cool. Run cool sauce through a blender on high speed for one minute. Pour sauce through a sieve. Inject strained sauce into turkey.

Weight Loss on a “Twinkie Diet”?

Don’t tell your kids, but CNN.com reports that Kansas State University Nutrition Professor Mark Haub lost 27 pounds over 10 weeks on a junk food diet. In addition to shedding pounds and 9 percent of his body fat, Haub’s diet significantly lowered his triglycerides and “bad” cholesterol, as well as substantially raised his “good” cholesterol.

Every three hours on his junk food diet, Haub ate a sugary treat of snack cakes, chips, cookies, or sweet breakfast cereals. Two-thirds of his daily calorie intake came from these foods, supplemented by a daily multivitamin, a protein shake, and a small serving of vegetables. The results of Haub’s experiment support that calorie reduction is the goal to weight loss, not necessarily how healthful those calories are.

Before you go running for the candy aisle, you should know that while Haub’s health figures improved over his short-term experiment, the junk food diet’s long-term effects on overall health could not be determined. Such a limited diet could have lasting effects on risk of diseases like cancer. But for now, for those looking to slim their waistlines, we at William Bounds say, “Let them eat cake!”

In the spirit of Professor Haub’s junk food diet, William Bounds presents a new twist on some of our favorite American desserts. For sugars, spice mills, and silicone accessories to meet all your baking needs, visit our website.



1/4 cup sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 eggs
1 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans
9-inch pie shell


Preheat oven to 400°F.

In a large bowl, beat eggs until foamy. Stir in melted butter. Mix in sugar, brown sugar, and flour until well blended. Add milk, vanilla, and chopped pecans.

Pour all into pie shell and cover pie edges with the William Bounds Sili Pie Crust Protector. Bake 10 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350°F and bake an additional 30–40 minutes until done.




1 box devil’s food cake mix
1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs


8 oz cream cheese
1/2 stick butter
2 tsp vanilla
3 cups powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 350°F.

To make the cookie, mix the cookie ingredients together. Roll the dough into dime-sized balls. Place a William Bounds Sili 9 Bake Liner on cookie sheet to prevent cookies from sticking or overbrowning. Bake 8 minutes, then cool. To make the filling, mix all filling ingredients until smooth. Frost cooled cookies and place together to make completed sandwich cookie.




4 egg whites
16-oz box golden pound cake mix
2/3 cup water


2 tsp hot water
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups marshmallow cream
1/2 cup shortening
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla


Preheat oven to 325°F.

To make the cake, combine cake mix with 2/3 cup water and beat until well blended. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. Slowly combine egg whites into cake mix until batter is blended. Pour batter into muffin tin, about 3/4-inch deep. Bake 30 minutes or until cakes are golden brown.

To make the filling, dissolve the salt in the hot water and let cool. In a separate bowl, mix marshmallow cream, shortening, powdered sugar, and vanilla until fluffy. Add salt water solution and mix.

To fill cakes, add filling to a pastry bag with a round tip. Going in from the bottom of the cakes, insert the tip about halfway into the cake and gently squeeze. Do this in three separate holes along the bottom of each cake.

A New Seasoning this Season: Seven Peppercorns to Spice Up Your Holidays

This holiday season, black pepper will be ground atop everything from squash soup to mashed potatoes. But did you know there’s black pepper beyond the standard tabletop fare? Black peppercorns come in many varieties from mild and slightly fruity to hot and pungent. Since black pepper plants prefer hot and humid environments, they are most often grown in countries like India, Indonesia, and Brazil. That’s why black peppercorns are typically named after the region where they were exported from or grown. Peppercorns also come in other flavors and colors, including white and rose. In addition to its premier pepper mills and grinders, William Bounds offers a variety of exotic peppercorns to tantalize your taste buds. With so many peppercorns to choose from, why not try a new seasoning this season?

Tellicherry Black Peppercorns

Tellicherry is William Bounds’ most popular black pepper. This Indian peppercorn is considered one of the finest black peppers available, thanks to its flavor, pungency, and consistent quality. Tellicherry peppercorns mature longer on the vine, which allows them to develop the spicy, rich, aromatic flavors for which they are known.

Lampong Black Peppercorns

Commonly used in the United Kingdom, Lampong pepper has a milder flavor and aroma than Tellicherry pepper, but it still carries a subtle heat. Lampong peppercorns originate in Indonesia on the island of Sumatra.

Sarawak Black Peppercorns

Grown on the island of Borneo, this Malaysian variety of the black peppercorn has a mild flavor and aroma, often described as fruity.

Malabar Black Peppercorns

Malabar is a popular variety of Indian black pepper that delivers a stout flavor. Both Malabar and Tellicherry peppercorns are grown on the coast of India. While Tellicherry peppercorns remain on the vine to mature, Malabar peppercorns are smaller and ripen less, which explains their slightly green hue.

Brazilian Green Peppercorns

Green peppercorns’ light, slightly fruity flavor is more subtle than that of black peppercorns, because green peppercorns are picked before maturity. The peppercorns are then freeze dried to retain freshness. Green peppercorns are called for in a traditional pepper steak recipe and they are also a good match with soups, marinades, and peppercorn sauces.

French Pepper Rose

Surprisingly, rose pepper is not a true peppercorn, but is a similar-tasting berry from a rose plant grown off the Madagascar coast. Rose pepper’s flavor is milder than black pepper’s, with hints of fruitiness and tartness. Rose pepper is a versatile spice that pairs well with marinades and sauces or meats such as pork or seafood.

Muntok White Peppercorns

This Indonesian pepper is the most common type of white pepper, prized throughout the world for its hot, slightly musky flavor. Although it comes from the same species as black pepper, white pepper is somewhat less pungent and aromatic because it is allowed to ripen longer on the vine before it is soaked and removed from its dark outer husk. White pepper is also important for keeping light-colored foods like sauces and soups v

William Bounds’ Easy Pumpkin Spice Pancakes With Pumpkin Butter

William Bounds' Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

Nothing signifies the taste of autumn better than fall spices like cloves, ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  These spices lend that warm autumn aroma to everything from spiced apple cider to pumpkin pie.  With all the spices used this time of year, it’s important to remember that whole spices yield stronger, purer flavors than their pre-ground counterparts.  But how to turn that hard, whole spice into a finely ground powder?

For certain spices, such as cinnamon and nutmeg, William Bounds offers specialized mills to get the finest, most consistent grind.  For other spices and herbs, we at William Bounds know there’s no better tool than the age-old mortar and pestle.

William Bounds Grate Bowl Mortar and Pestle puts a contemporary twist on an old favorite.  The Grate Bowl features exclusive grooves etched into the mortar and pestle, making it easy to finely grind herbs and spices.  The Grate Bowl is made of vitrified porcelain, which means it will not absorb moisture.  The mortar also features a silicone base so it won’t slip, even during the toughest grinding projects.  The Grate Bowl is dishwasher safe for easy cleanup.

William Bounds Grate Bowl and spice mills will help make this autumn breakfast favorite a breeze to prepare!

Easy Pumpkin Spice Pancakes


2 1/3 cup multipurpose baking mix (like Bisquick)
2 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon, ground with William Bounds Cinnamon Mill
1/4 tsp nutmeg, ground with William Bounds Nut Twister Nutmeg Mill
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1 1/4 c milk
2 eggs
1/3 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup vegetable oil


Mix all ingredients and beat until smooth.  Pour 1/4 cup batter per pancake on to hot griddle.  Cook until pancake edges are dry, then flip pancakes over.  Cook until golden brown.  Serve with maple syrup or pumpkin butter, below.

Pumpkin Butter


29 oz canned pumpkin
3/4 cup apple juice
2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp cloves, ground with William Bounds Grate Bowl Mortar and Pestle
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg


Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan.  Stir well.  Bring mixture to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes or until thickened, stirring frequently.

Who is William Bounds? The History of Our Company

William Bounds Ltd., America’s leading manufacturer of pepper and spice mills, was founded on one basic principle: “How can I make this better?”

Company founder William Bounds picked up his family’s pepper mill and asked exactly that question. Already an internationally recognized inventor from his career in photographic instrumentation, where he revolutionized photography with a better electronic flash camera, Bounds used his innovation to found his own company in 1963. His product philosophy was “new ideas with old-fashioned workmanship.”

The company’s focus: that old pepper mill.

Bounds united his product philosophy with his “How can I make this better?” attitude to design and produce the Shake ‘n Twist, the first combination salt shaker and pepper mill. As a testament to Mr. Bounds’ originality, to this day, the Shake ‘n Twist remains a best seller for William Bounds Ltd.

Today, William Bounds features more than 200 salt, pepper, and spice mills, whose pioneering design crushes spices rather than grinds them. William Bounds has also expanded beyond its pepper mill beginnings to offer the Sili Gourmet line of silicone kitchen tools, the Grate line of modern mortar and pestle sets, and the Grainware line of upscale acrylic serveware, barware, gifts, and accessories.

William Bounds is always looking for new ways to enhance a cook’s contemporary lifestyle with attractive, easy-to-use kitchen accessories. The company is responsible for many industry innovations:

• The first solid stainless steel milling mechanism that produces a true cracked pepper;
• The first easy-turn adjusting ring to give a precise fine, medium, or coarse grind;
• The first ceramic milling mechanism for a variety of sea salts and spices;
• The first high-output chef’s mill, designed specifically for the active cook;
• The first nutmeg mill, for more poignant flavor; and
• The first high-end silicone basting brush.

These innovations show how Bounds’ philosophies carry on today at William Bounds Ltd. Bounds’ family members continue his quest for original, quality products, including William’s grandson Bill, who designs many of the company’s salt and pepper mills.
