Well it’s Tuesday and I should be posting madeleines which is the recipe chosen by Tara of Smells Like Home but let me tell you about my only experience with madeleines. I was pregnant, in the first trimester. Oh yes, the morning sickness trimester. That didn’t end well.
Luckily Laurie, our fabulous founder, gave us the option of going back and completing a recipe that we may have missed or one that the group did before we joined. So that’s what I did. And then I got bored and did another. But wait. I got bored again and did a third Dorie recipe for the week.
The first was Quintuple Chocolate Brownies which was the second recipe the group did. It was originally chosen by Chelle of Sugar & Spice way back in January. These brownies were fabulous. The husband says that they are the best brownies in the world even though I didn’t have any nuts to put in them. They were a little time consuming but most of that was chill time. Well worth the wait though. For the recipe, hop over to Chelle’s blog.
My second recipe was Brown Sugar Shortbread which I assume was chosen by Laurie since it was the very first recipe. These little cookies spread like crazy! Whenever I’ve made shortbread before it’s stayed where I put it, but these came out huge. Very tasty though. A little chewy from the brown sugar but they still “melt” like regular shortbread. I didn’t see the recipe on Laurie’s site but Chelle has this one too.
My last one for the week was Orange Berry Muffins. It was once again chosen by Chelle. Girl’s got good taste, right? The muffins are pretty amazing. I didn’t expect much from them but the orange really makes them perfect. I made them just a few hours ago and the husband and kid have already gone through half of them!
I’ll be back on schedule next week. Hopefully.
