Blueberry Bundt Cake

Alright, here goes – career killing post #5, or maybe 20, but who’s counting at this point: I don’t know what it is lately, but my fanboy status for Cook’s Illustrated has been waning with the last two issues.

How can this be? This is like the no-fail magazine.

Hazelnut Crepes with Honey Whipped Cream and Fruit

Sometimes fancy doesn’t work and you just have to go back to basics. This started out as a crepe cake, but all that fruit caused the layers to slip and slide until half way through the assembly the cake literally collapsed on its side.

So yeah, this is missing a visual impact. But I can assure you the brown butter hazelnut crepes are something to taste, along with the honey whipped cream—go ahead pair this with the best seasonal fruit you have on hand and see your way to a serving or two. 

Strawberry Truffle Pie

Okay, I brought pie, so please allow me to be a whiner.

This past week I lost my Instagram feed. Talk about things that make you want to cry. No, I’m not being dramatic. That’s 4,000 relationships gone overnight. Many of whom I will never get back and don’t even know where to begin, because many of them (and/or you) I know from handles like A19_jillsli. Therein lies the problem– off by one digit or letter and it might as well be like we never met.
