Wow. When I logged back on to this blog, it made me realize it’s been two years since my last post. TWO. Years.
Last week, I was making home made chicken pot pie pockets, and i got all food photography blog nostalgic. And now here I am. I’m back! With a twist…
After each post, I would like for you to give me suggestions, if you want. Give me something to make, bake, eat! I will pick a dish or what have you for my next post. My sister’s first suggestion was key lime pie. Clearly with my crab cake post, she got denied. Hi, sis!
On to crab cakes…
Thanks to Random.org , Antonella will be getting fresh baked, salted caramel brownies.
The brownies will be baked and shipped out on Monday.
So, I know I’m supposed to be focusing more on macarons this year, but I had a dilemma.
You see, Icemageddon has happened here in Atlanta. Being stuck inside and being very cold can only call for rich, chocolatey, warm brownies!
I have absolutely no idea when or why I suddenly had this thing for macarons. But ever since then, they are all I can think about.
With this new obsession, I tried and tried and kept on trying to make them. And for some reason, I can’t make them well… consistently.
So my New Year’s Resolution 2011: master the macaron!
Ok, first let me say that I tried really hard to not eat sweets this week. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), my table at the Midtown Pop Up Market was right next to Gigi’s Cupcakes.
I loooove pecan pie! Love. So I thought, hey! Why not tackle it for Thanksgiving dinner. It is tremendously easy, but I have to admit it… I cheated. No pie dough from scratch here!
The non-canned variety here, my friends…
You know, I’m not really a fan of cranberry sauce, but somehow, things always taste better when you make it yourself.
