I may have been too busy to post anything over the last few weeks, but that doesn’t mean J has been slacking in the kitchen. On the contrary, I have many highlights to share. And, although J will swear up and down that he is a terrible baker, many of this post’s goodies are baked ones.
This lemon custard bread has my name written all over it. I typically love anything lemony, especially in the dessert category.
J made these homemade biscuits to pair with a soup (picture not found). I think I tried to resist eating them for about 5 minutes, and then I had to give in and eat them for the rest of the week.
And now smothered for weekend brunch, just to make them extra healthy.
Finally, something healthy! This tuna salad with olives, peppers, artichokes, basil (recipe from food52) is the best I have ever had in my life. I could eat it everyday. There are so many flavors going on, and the basil gives it a hint of sweetness. Served with kale and quinoa salad, one of J’s go to recipes, always fantastic (and lemony).
Our friend, Amy, visited us this past weekend, and J knew that brunch the next morning would be pretty naughty, so he went easy on us with dinner. It was healthy and delicious, and made us feel a little less guilty about dessert.
We finally finished off the scones, which is both happy and sad.
Brunch prep: this is basically a giant latke, from J’s Thomas Keller book.
The finished product.
Needless to say, we could use a good walk today to make up for the damage we’ve done.
