Unlike most Mondays, I have no new food to share today. That’s not to say I didn’t get my bake on this weekend, I did (that made me sound like a stoner, but you know what I mean – I hope). I can’t share said baked good with you yet because 1. I was in a rush and didn’t take any photos AND because 2. it was a test run for something that may or may not be the first beta shipment to a not-so unsuspecting recipient. I will divulge that I’m kinda cheating on this whole beta testing thing because said baked good really won’t be that challenging to ship.
SO, in lieu of showing you something I made, I am going to show you things I WANT to make in the near future. Feel free to suggest the order in which I should make these, or add ideas of your own. I’m always up for suggestions (and Sarah, I know I owe you your macaroons). OH – also, I’m soliciting dairy-free baking ideas (eggs are OK), if you have some, bring ’em.
Thanks to a friend of a friend, I found the Food Crossing blog this week.
I’m kind of in love.
I want to make this:
And, well, pretty much everything else on Hillary’s blog, but you can go there and read all of her recipes. Those are my top 2.
I can’t go on How Sweet It Is without wanting to make pretty much everything she’s ever posted – her photos, writing and ideas are all to be envied. By me. I have blogfoodphoto envy. She also shares my love of bacon. Of all the tasty treats, though, these are on the top of my list.
I’ve been obsessing over them since I read the post.
Other things I want to try making in the near future include:
The lime-basil bundt cake in my Kiss My Bundt book. Cuz it just sounds funky/good.
My mom’s cream puff recipe with raspberry-cream filling.
French onion soup from scratch. Love to eat it. Never made it.
Something with barley. I’m feelin’ me some barley lately.
Stay tuned for any/all of the above, some crazy-ass hail photos and a potato recipe I’ve been promising my dear friend Niki I’d post. She’s not letting it go.
