This past weekend I was thinking of making a cheesecake. The Best Friend (Girl) mentioned cheesecake and since then I have been craving for one. Unfortunately, I cave to peer pressures especially when food is involve. Daydreamer Desserts made some Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream. When I found this recipe, I thought perfect! I still have frozen strawberries and I have been wanting a cheesecake for a week. I might add some graham crackers for the texture.
One blog I totally admire is No Special Effects. Her images are so great. I wished I was able to compose a photograph as well as she does. This week she made a Almond-Lemon Tea Cake. Her images just made me crave this cake. I also liked the combination of orange and lemon as a glaze for the cake.
This week Bake at 350 made a milk chocolate pretzel tart. Not an ordinary chocolate tart but one that uses pretzel. The great part is the use of sea salt as a topping. I don't remember what I was watching but I saw this television show describing the benefits of adding salt to desserts. This recipe reminded me of that television show.
As some of you know I find making bread a challenge. I would try a recipe of multiple recipes of the same bread many times until I get it just like I want it. It may take up to 10 tries as it did with my Pan de Sal attempt but I try not to give up. Honey and Butter made Baguettes this week. I didn't realized how little ingredients there were. I can't wait to try this.
I have been admiring Tartelette's blog for a long time. This week she made a Savory Green, Tomato, and Goat Cheese Tart. She made her own puff pastry. She totally inspired me to try it also. I have to cross my fingers and toes that it will come out edible. Than she topped the puff pastry with tomatoes, arugula, and goat cheese. I had to save the recipe by the shear beauty of the food.There was a lot of recipes I added and I found another bread recipe. This time, I have never had this. I actually never heard if them until Oggi from I Can Do That! posted. The breads are Monay, Pinagong, and Putok. It starts with the same dough but the toppings or the shapes are different. We will see :D
