The first of the season's asparagus! I go out early every morning to see if some are ready, and so far we're only getting a small handful at a time. I cook them briefly in a little butter, salt, and pepper, and we eat them with breakfast. The kids gobble them up - the spears are so sweet - I wonder if the cooler weather (more snow in store for us this weekend) is sweetening them?
Star bread! This one is a garlic bread, using butter, fresh garlic (grated), and fresh-picked oregano, sage, and terragon from the garden.
Lemon bars, which satisfied my need to use up a good amount of eggs and my desire for lemon meringue pie, which never seems to turn out quite right.
A burnt and lopsided brioche loaf (this is its good side), which most certainly didn't turn out right. How do you not burn a bread that is over half its weight in butter? The texture on the inside was terrific, though, like a crescent roll!
What's going on in your kitchen these days?
