I love baking! I love bringing out my Kitchen Aid mixer (named Jill) and filling the whole house with the yummy fragrance. I am, however, in a baking slump lately. It's too hot over here (in Southern California) and I don't want to heat up the house anymore than I have to. And it is SO costly to buy all the ingredients! The cost of good chocolate is sky high these days. This is my dilemma...
Friday night is my brother's birthday. For some reason he decided he was going to make dinner for all his friends and family. It's kinda fancy! Here's the menu he created and send out via facebook message to all his friends:
Leek and Mozzarella Flatbread
Bacon wrapped scallops and asparagus
Tangy Plum Cole Slaw
Balsamic Rosemary Chicken
Garlic Herb Butter Salmon
Grilled Vegetable Medley
and dessert from Kasey's Kitchen
"and dessert from Kasey's Kitchen"! Talk about pressure for someone who's not in the mood! I wanted to try to make Madeline cookies and dip the tops in chocolate and do an ice cream cake with coffee ice cream and chocolate cake ... but I don't know. I've never tried to make Madelines before.
Does anyone have any ideas?
PS more Michael Miller fabrics will be here FRIDAY including laminated cotton Dandy Damask in Black! I thought that's be a perfect material for diaper bags or maybe a table cloth!
