Mushroom Soup

We made this delicious soup a couple of weeks ago.  The splash of soy sauce gave it a nice bit of saltiness.  Mine did not seem to be as silky as the photo, it should possibly be strained before serving.  From Tasting Table.

Easter Saturday

Hosted an early easter Brunch on Saturday, basically as an excuse to make fresh squeezed mimosas and eat deviled eggs all day. On the menu- gazpacho soup, greek salad, 3 kinds of sausage, mini grilled cheeses, mushroom fontina quiche, parmesan drizzled asparagus, deviled eggs (with bacon!), blueberry muffins, almond coffee cake, and cakeballs from Bleeding Heart Bakery.

yes, thank you!

tangerine dream

Am Easter-motivated by this inspiration board from last April on Snippet & Ink.
Could be a cute table with some gray accents to tone down the sherbert-ness of it all!

hello, monday!

Had a lovely (but, as usual, too short) weekend.

Took the "meat butchery" class at the Chopping Block. VERY informative. I discovered a passable ability to filet and skin a fish, but may have to leave the whole chicken to the professionals.

Can't wait to get my hands on this beautiful book!

I really like this salad recipe, only with another lettuce instead of the mustard greens. Just too bitter for me! Have made it once with some quickly baked kale and a second time with red leaf lettuce.

I liked everything about this lemon ricotta pancake recipe. Do it. You will not be sorry you did!
