It snowed here this weekend… on the EXACT same day as the first snow last year (thanks Facebook!)… Crazy right? Being cooped up in the house this weekend led me to cleaning out the large amount of rotten bananas in my freezer. Sometimes I think Ben purposely lets them rot, just so I will make banana bread…
It really doesn’t get much better than eating a cool, creamy tart with juicy fresh fruit on a hot summer evening. A few friends and I had a delicious bison barbeque this past week. We had one dish after another until we could hardly eat anymore… but then came the dessert. Consumption of this dessert took place around my kitchen counter with moaning, mmm’s and oh my god’s coming from stuffed faces.
This week’s throwback recipe is a delicious sweet treat from France- eclairs. Last fall I was asked if I could make a friend eclairs and, at the time, I had no idea what they even were! I did my research and attempted to make my own. I ended up just cutting the tops off mine to fill them, but looking back I should have used a pastry bag. I would recommend a pastry bag for anyone who tries this recipe. I am looking forward to the baking classes when I begin culinary school because I think my baking skills could use some work!
