Woke up this morning with a really bad sinus infection and am prepared from last time. Only bad thing is my right ear is really hurting. Oh well, just deal with it.
Came across an interesting recipe on Tribute to Katherine Hepburn Brownies. Quite a title! Not sure if she made these herself(which I doubt). There are two sites that carry the recipe whereby the ingredients are very different and naturally the taste is different. Check out the two--recipesfrom4everykitchen and cdkitchen . The former calls for cinnamon and instant coffee and the latter does not. Very unusual to say the least. I am just wondering where the tribute part comes in to play here. Brownies are my favorite to make and eat so I will let you know what I find out.
I did order a new cookbook on baking. The name is Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan. I read about her background and the recipes in this book and figured it would be a great addition to my books. The recipes are not overwhelming as to ingredients and easy to prepare. You can read more about this book, the author and recipes at the blog iliketocook I thought it very interesting how many of the recipes were farmed out to various cooks to test.
We are going to treat ourselves in 2007. Yes, a few of us are going to Emeril's restaurant in New Orleans. I checked out the menu(no prices) and it is has a good variety. Seems his Signature Dishes are recommended-- the New Orleans BBQ Shrimp — and Banana Cream Pie with Banana Crust and Caramel drizzles for dessert. Both items appealed to me, so we shall see.
