This month’s challenge was definitely a daunting one! (as they always are…now that I think about it!). I have never used yeast before and this is about the third time I got out my trusty rolling pin from WS.
It was fun! I love rolling dough. 😀 And I love rolling dough even more when I know I am getting a delicious pastry out of it! I still have half of the dough in the freezer waiting to be shaped, filled and proofed! Hmmm..I’m thinking pain au chocolat needs to come about in this kitchen of mine pretty darn soon…
Ah the classic sweets of a summer beach visit…
First and foremost is a ritual in my family and Stephanie’s – Fisher’s Popcorn. Now you can see the popcorn is all gone, but believe me! It is FANTASTIC.
Oh there is definitely something fishy in OC MD! It’s the delicious fresh fish I found at Crab N’ Cruz in Ocean Pines and subsequently made beautiful summer dinners with for two nights with my girl Stephanie!
Here is my lovely dinner from Monday night! Definitely a treat! Wegmans blessed me with fresh morels and I graciously obliged!
and I promise there are morels in there! This recipe comes courtesy of Ina from Barefoot in Paris! This is the third time I have made this chicken dish and it NEVER lets me down. 😀 And the roasted rosemary & garlic potatoes, and fresh sauteed peas from the Waverly Farmer’s Market were delicious too!
This was the last of the desserts on Saturday and boy was it yummy! The entire tart was promptly finished off on Sunday with my pops.
The recipe comes from Miss Mary at Alpineberry! My tart pan was a little smaller than hers so I cut the recipe by a third! (my measurements listed below have been adjusted!)
Here is another dessert from my girlie party on Saturday! It comes from Mrs. Ina Garten and even though it looks like a white mass of something…it was delicious! (with minor adjustments…)
I am submitting this to another one of Mike’s Table Food Challenges!
First- I would like to give a shout out to ma famille. Below is a picture of us on our vacation last summer in Burlington, VT.
I love them so much and words cannot express how thankful I have them in my life. There would be no “food on my table” if it was not for their love and support.
Second- Shari from Whisk Blog food blog tagged me! I am so honored!
This my friends is what I like to call heaven in a handbasket.
Now that makes no sense, but that’s okay. I made three lovely soufflés on Saturday for my delightful friends-Megan and Kim, and myself!
I love you french chocolate food. I really do.
see recipe below!
6/25-Update: Baltimore Sun Article by Mr. Rob Kasper with a summary of our experiences! Check it out!
Friday night was a momentous one for me and my little blog. I got to meet some of the other “famous” (in my eyes) blogging foodie baltimorons! AND we got to go flavor tripping, aka eating a miracle fruit and see its glorious effects on our tastebuds!
There is a picture of the wee little fruit that had so much power over my tongue when it came to acidic foods!
I wanted to use up my strawberries I bought at the Waverly farmers market and the lovely mesclun too! I went perusing through my latest copy of Cook’s Country and found this!
The goat cheese went WONDERFULLY with the dressing and strawberries…
