The marshmallows

leave a comment »

Our marshmallows did not turn out. They were a sticky goopy mess. And then I broke the pan they were in. The caramels I made the other day were too hard. But, on the bright side, the toffee I made was delicious. I think candy making may not be my calling in life.

And, in the future, I will try not to drunk blog. Those pictures from yesterday were terrible.

But I have something that’s not terrible.

I wanted to tell you about the bacon wrapped Pâté de Campagne we made the other day. It’s delicious. And it’s wrapped in bacon. Behold:

Mmmmmm... pate

This is something you should all make. The recipe is conveniently found in this month’s Bon Apetit. I don’t see it online yet, but it should be on Epicurious soon.

Almond ToffeeDark chocolate and fleur de sel almond toffee.

Nom nom nom. These cheese and crackers are pretty good.

Learning how to use Esco

Kimchi and salad dressing awaiting noodlesI’m still figuring things out here on WordPress. Sorry for the old picture. This is just a test.

I’m pretty sick today, and the pile of kleenex is growing on the table next to me, so I’m going to be back soon, but maybe not with much substance for a bit.
