Rhiannon is the name of my second child born in October 2011. While at home on maternity leave, I discovered the Baking with Julia group and decided to join. While I may be short on time, I love to bake and love having an excuse to bake. Although Rhiannon cannot eat all of these treats, she is a (somewhat) patient observer of my endeavors.
Yet another catch up post. I have been baking all along, but the posting dates have not been corresponding to my baking dates. I have no life changing excuse like a move or a new job or newborn baby, just regular life with all its irregularities and oddities. It resembles this set of recipes. When put all together they seem a bit odd and mismatched and overwhelming. But individually they were all quite delicious and not too taxing.
From most recent to the not so recent:
Parmesan Puffs: an exercise in deep frying (deep frying puff pastry nonetheless). Yum.
Hazelnut baby loaves: obviously not a baby loaf, but one big one, delicately flavored.
Raspberry Swirls: genoise rolled and layered, my only successful genoise yet. (It doesn't hurt that it is dipped in chocolate.)
