Too Many Chefs - Posts of the Week

A. Delicious Days from Munich makes a heck of a debut this week with a photographic summarization of the recipe for Mozartkugeln. They seem simple enough for even a klutz like me to make. The post also includes some beautiful pictures of Spring in Mun…

French Sheep’s Brie

I went to Fox & Obel today after work to look around and to ideally purchase some black truffle oil. I unfortunately found the the store to be super over-priced and not very unique. The black truffle oil was very expensive. I will have to order it online instead. I didn’t leave empty handed of […]

The Food Whore - There is nothing better than a fabulous brie. I will have to look for this one!
Your site is wonderful – I envy your baking skills.
Cooking I can do – Baking – eh, not so much.

dayzella - Wandered over here from Gapers’s = got a giggle from the “two gloves of garlic” – hee! Nice site, enjoyed my visit. Will be stopping by again ;) Good luck to you!

gemma - ah! Good catch. I feel compelled to leave that now. On first pass your comment had me very confused and with a mind full of very intriguing mental images.
Thanks for stopping by!

Irish Soda Bread

Last night I had two friends over for an early evening St. Patrick’s Day celebration while all the other roommates were out. I bought some vintage Dubliner cheddar, some Kerrygold butter, and served them with delicious Irish Soda Bread just out of the oven. (Harold brought the Guinness and whiskey). I used the recipe offered […]
