I know I said that the next thing I would blog about would be Tuscany but…I had so much else that I need to tell you! As most of you know I am obsessed with all things Smitten Kitchen (smittenkitchen.com), especially “The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook”. Big news: There’s a SECOND Smitten Kitchen Cookbook coming out! AIEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!! I know you guys are not as excited about this as I am…sorry. Anyway, inspired by the film “Julie and Julia” (with Meryl Streep who I also happen to be obsessed with) I decided to cook every recipe in the Smitten Kitchen Cookbook! My Progress report:
1. Peach and Sour Cream Pancakes.
Grade: A- YUM! The marriage of creamy sour cream and the peaches, “caramelized by the butter” is delish!
2. Cinnamon Toast French Toast
Grade: A+! Baking french toast+spreading it with cinnamon sugar=so good!!!!!!!!!
3. Gingerbread Spice Dutch Baby YUM!
4. Plum Poppy Seed Muffins
5. Rasberry Ricotta Scones
6. Chocolate Chip Brioche Pretzels
COMING UP: ALMOND DATE BREAKFAST BARS!
