Rhubarb Strawberry Vanilla Bourbon Curd & Cinnamon Angel Food

Here, it is the golden hour of warmth; summer is officially all around us. To me it always slips away far too fast, like sand through my fingers. Old habits and such. Instead I try to revel in each ruby-kissed cheek, a garden thick with the scent of lilies and garden roses, and fresh produce that tastes like the sun. I don't have an edible garden of my own yet, so the next best thing is the "pick-your-own" farms.

Rainier Cherry Frangipane Tart

I am teaching (I use this term loosely) myself how to knit. Ah, the wonderful joy and frustration of blindly finding your way in a new skill. I have a very hard time being a beginner and I mostly attribute this to the Ira Glass quote about creative folk - that we have good taste, but when you are a beginner your skills aren't producing your level of taste, thus leading to frustration and for many the end of the creative pursuit.

Honey Pie Bars

Lately, I have been craving this simple old-fashioned sugar custard pie that I had when I was younger (go ahead and get the "that's what she said" jokes out now). I can't remember if my grandma made it or she just bought it at the grocery, but I don't recall seeing at a restaurant or store since then.

Black Bean Quinoa Chili

We have officially entered the Spring transition time...yessssss. It is amazing to me how one day it is suddenly lighter in the morning earlier and there are little tiny buds beginning to unfurl everywhere. I saw Forsynthia peeking out of a bush at the end of our street and somewhere deep down there was a sigh of relief.

RECIPE

Mini Princess Cakes

I have been admiring these sweet little cakes for a while and finally got the guts to try them. The princess cake or prinsesstårta as it is called in Sweden got its name from three princesses around the 1930's that called it a favorite (at the time called green cake). I have a version of the recipe in a cookbook from Miette bakery and this attempt is modeled after those assembly instructions, but with some alterations.
