We Likey: All I Really Want Registry

Wedding Registry Ideas

Still scrambling to put together your perfect gift registries?

The latest virtual tool for the tech-savvy bride, newly launched site All I Really Want offers a simple, free way to catalogue your ultimate wedding registry.

In a few simples steps, you can start linking your objects of desire from all over the web to be shared.

Launched in February 2012, co-founders Andrew Thomka-Gazdik and Julia Collins wanted to create a simple way to make gift giving easier. Recently featured in Mashable’s “Spark of Genius” series, All I Really Want is “a simple and practical [Content Management System],” that “takes the mystery out of gift giving.” –

Ruby Red Sparkling Wine Aspic (jello shooter)

Ruby Red Sparkling Wine

Recipe and directions from Pane e Acqua di Rose:

Ingredients (makes 18):

1,5 bottle of dry sparkling wine
120g of white sugar
38g of gelatine leaves
2 pomegranates
300g of frozen raspberry
1 orange

I put the gelatine leaves in cold water to soften them. In the mean time, I boiled 150ml of water, the sugar and the grated peel of the orange. When the liquid boiled, I filtered it with a strainer, eliminating the orange peel. I melted the squeezed gelatin in the microwave oven, then I added it to the liquid and stirred well. I added the sparkling wine and left it to cool.
I peeled and husked the pomegranates. In every small cup I put some husks of pomegranate and some raspberries, still frozen. I poured the jelly on them and left it to cool. I took the cups out of the fridge a few minutes before serving.




2 ounces of chilled pomegrante juice


For each drink, pour about 2 ounces of chilled pomegranate juice into a champagne flute and fill rest of the way up with chilled champagne.
