Oh, the long weekend. A bike ride on Sunday had me falling on my butt three times with one scraped knee to show for it, but otherwise, it’s been going pretty well. Leo and I made pizzas on Friday using Jim Lahey’s no knead pizza recipe, and I baked some petite madeleine batter in a whoopie pie pan! I burnt the cakes a bit though. Still edible.
1. A Talk of Small Plates on Twitter as covered by the New York Times.
2. NPR, a bit behind, thinks that coffee is the new wine.
4. This Coconut Swirl Bread is relatively easy to make and comes out tasting similar to a brioche. I’ve baked it as a loaf and as little individual buns with chocolate centres.
5. Pho For Four: Food always tastes better when shared with friends, like this big bowl of pho and fresh rolls with iced Jasmine tea. We added a fried rice with shrimp and pineapple afterwards.
