Wednesday Bookmarks, Nov 10
So, what's been cooking this week? I think you can tell that it's usually the sweet treats that I bookmark - especially now that the weather is grey and dreary. We had a horrible rainstorm yesterday, that turned into a snowstorm, that then turned into semi-frozen slush. Definitely NOT my favorite weather. (I thought I'd use these posts to show you photos from my window, so you can follow the Swedish seasons.)
Mia Öhrn is a great pastry chef and she's also really sweet - I met her a few weeks ago at a press event and was thrilled. She always seems to make tempting treats, but these milk chocolate truffle macaroons with cinnamon are completely adorable.
Christmas is fast approaching, and I know I want to make this sticky saffron cake topped with white chocolate truffle. I think it might be very sweet, but perfect in thin slices with coffee.
Top Chef Just Desserts is one of my favorite shows right now. Eric Wolitzy was recently eliminated, but he's been showing off a lot of great baked goodies throughout the season. This recipe is for chocolate chip cookies, and they seem perfectly soft and chewy. Have to try it!
I hope these links will cheer you up! As always, for all of my bookmarks, you can check out my Delicious page.
