I have been much slower getting through books this year (and keeping up with this blog!). Here are the last 5 I finished.
As soon as I saw these, I knew I had to make them. I couldn’t find dried strawberries so I used blueberries instead. It was so delicious and simple that I think I will be making these often.
Also, this *large* pat of butter was completed unnecessary. The scones are perfectly buttery on their own.
I’m in the mood to revisit some of my favorite recipes, including this granola. It is simple yet flavorful, and makes breakfast more interesting. I paired it with coconut yogurt and a champagne mango, which tastes better than candy.
I know sourdough is so 2020, but I was thrilled when this loaf came out that I had to document it. I used the method described here, and it was far easier than I thought it would be.
I purchased a beautiful Astier de Villate candlestick from Catbird NYC, and I was so pleased with the special package that came. I love supporting small businesses, especially because their attention to detail is unmatched.
I am currently in the process of putting away my winter clothes. Before I store my sweaters, I make sure they are clean and ready to go for when I open them next winter. This also helps prevent any potential moth infestation.
First, I use an electric defuzzer to remove pills. I then put like colors together in a laundry bag and wash on delicate (with cold water, low spin), using a detergent formulated specifically for sweaters. I remove and roll the sweaters in a towel to remove excess water, and then lay flat to dry. One of my favorite tips is to check the sweater measurements as it is drying. I find that it usually shrinks a bit and it is easy to stretch back into place when wet.
For the first time in 10 years, I stayed in NYC like a tourist. I got a great rate at 11 Howard, and it was perfect for an overnight solo trip.
