Made the following this weekend
Strawberry cake: I used the Sprinkles strawberry cupcake recipe and added a little bit more strawberry than it called for. I made them in a mini loaf pan. Then glazed them with a strawberry puree, powdered sugar, vanilla mix. Turned out well. Next time I will let the glaze get a little firm on the cake before packaging
Blue Cheese Rolls: 1 puff pastry sheet or 1 pkg crecent rolls all the seams smooshed together. Mix blue cheese, walnuts, pears, honey together and put in to one of the edges (longways) of the roll. Roll chill/freeze for 10 min, slice bake at 375 for about 10 min or so. Very good. Will add to party menus.
Tomatillo Salsa: roasted 2 large tomatillos and 2 serranos in the oven. Put those in a food processor with some garlic and sauteed onion. Pulsed and then added salt, cilantro, and two avocados. Spicy but very good. Adapted the recipe from Rick Bayless
I will try to post more pictures and recipes with the cooking segment of this world.
