Here are some others, which hopefully will also inspire you:
The first picture on this post is of a Norwegian cardamom tart I baked recently from an old issue of Bon Appetit. While it won’t be making its way to the blog, I still have to say that it was one of the most fragrant tarts I’ve ever eaten. I think a little dark chocolate, although not at all a traditional touch, would be a welcome addition.
For years, I’ve dreamed of a continuation to the wonderful and long off-the-air tv series, Veronica Mars. Thanks to Kickstarter, my dream (and that of other Marshmallows) is coming true.
Although I have no time to think about “What’s next?” just yet, it was interesting to read about the random ways in which people opt to make career changes. It really drives home the fact that it really is all about being in the right place at the right time.
I’ve been going a little crazy for kumquats recently, packing them in a baggie with almonds for a tart afternoon snack or, thanks to a tip from a friend, finely slicing them–skin and all–and tossing them into a salad. For some reason, I decided to search for kumquats on Google and this old article by Amanda Hesser, which is really a tribute to kumquats, popped up.
I think the Greek and I are going to Berlin this summer! I’ve been dying to go for a while now and, after finally filing (whenever this will be; things are looking a little grim) the dissertation, certain dreams simply need to become a reality. And, thanks to this article, I’m really looking forward to breakfast in Berlin.
But before I can go to Mr. Minsch and stuff myself to my heart’s content, I’ve got a lot more essay writing to do. This thoughtful article pretty much sums up the emotional experience of the writer and the ways in which he/she can be riddled with doubt.
Last but not least, I just want to say that while I’ve had less time that I would like to devote to the blog in “this season of my discontented” dissertation sprint, thanks to a few efforts today and last weekend, I’m now sitting on 3 posts: more breakfast, an easy weeknight dinner that is a staple around here and bread. Yes, I’m finally returning to the bread-baking frenzy of the fall. In fact, as you can see in the picture below, I’ve been working on a starter, but it’s been a little touch and go….I’m not sure I’ve mastered the art of the starter yet, but I hope to report on this soon–and with a favorable outcome!
