No leap-year this year. But still plenty of interesting articles for the last half of this month:
The February 2011 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Mallory from A Sofa in the Kitchen. She chose to challenge everyone to make Panna Cotta from a Giada De Laurentiis recipe and Nestle Florentine Cookies.
I found both the cookies and the panna cotta to be easy to make and involved ingredients I had on hand. Both items were well-liked by my roommates and were eaten almost instantly.
This week I made Sour Cream Pound Cake. It was made with non-fat sour cream, but still tasted good. My roommates ate almost all of it, so that’s a good sign that it looked as good as it tasted. Pretty basic recipe with items you generally have on hand.
…and all of these other ingredients,
make LEMON POPPY-SEED MUFFINS!
I made 6 muffins and 1 loaf because I don’t have a muffin tin that holds 12 muffins.
Happy February! Also, happy…Chinese New Year (Year of the Rabbit-my year!), Boy Scout Day, President’s Day, Valentines Day, Black History Month, and American Heart Month! Did you know so many holidays happen in February? Such a short month, and so much going on-including what’s happening in the following articles: (nice segue, huh?)
