I have been following this awesome blog called the Quitting Chronicles which is awesome, and you should totally check it out! I am inspired by her for several reasons, which I won't go into here. But, I really like that she does a monthly wrap up of her progress. I am steeling that idea (fake it till you make it, right?) but I'm doing a summer wrap up of my cooking and creative endeavors. Mostly baking because that's how I spend most of my free time. No wonder why I need a vacation! Here are the pastries, baked goods, and the like that I have made from July-August. Sheesh!
Freedom Cake, banana bread, pumpkin/chocolate swirl muffins, dried currant scones, cheese biscuits, flan, panna cotta, bread pudding, chocolate soufflé, cheese soufflé, crème brûlèe, new york cheesecake with raspberry drizzle, baked alaska, meringue discs, granita, sorbet, puff pastry swans, éclairs, croquembouche, coconut cream pies, apple pie, sweet potato pie, peach and strawberry crisp, blueberry pie, plum galette, fresh fruit tart, quiche lorraine, plum frangipane tart, lemon tart, mushroom galette, napolean, apple tarte tatin, croissants (pain au chocolat, prosciutto and gruyere, plain and almond), palmiers, apple turnovers, butterscotch banana cream pie, traditional banana cream pie, chocolate pudding and huckleberry pie. (breathe)
Plus white sangria, chicken kebabs, italian pot roast, taqueria short ribs with cabbage slaw, roasted peaches with burrata, basil, spicy honey drizzle and walnut crumble, slow-cooker short ribs, herb potatoes, zucchini turkey meatballs and hazelnut cauliflower salad. to name a few.
