It's been a couple days since I wrote in here. Two fun days with foods. Let me first post a few back pictures. Let's begin with pear-prusciutto pizza:
Next, the heirloom tomato pizza:
Then, the Italian sausage and couscous with smoked mozzarella (plate from before I was born!):
The last two, I have to write a bit about. Yesterday, we made a pretzel recipe in the morning that yielded a dozen pretzels--half a dozen with Old Bay and half a dozen with cinnamon and sugar. (We tried not to sprinkle Old Bay onto the ones right next to them with cinnamon). We baked the pretzels on a round pan. The boys placed them close enough together that they touched while baking. When they were done, I was able to slide the whole dozen off as a circle onto the cooling rack. The kids called in a "Pretzel Pie".
Finally, this morning, I followed up on a post from earlier in the week when I mentioned that I had organic pomegranate toaster pastries. I found a recipe and gave it a try. This first batch turned out okay. I need a jam that is slightly less runny and I need to either toast them after baking or bake them a little longer. Rather than using a sugar-icing topping, we used Nutella and sprinkles. Here is a picture of the ten "pop-tarts". We used homemade cherry freezer jam as the filling. Great combination with the chocolate and hazelnuts.
Is there a Path?
