Just made some bread with spelt flour, and added a mix of toasted sunflower seeds, walnut and toasted oats, (all zapped in the food processor to make them reasonably small pieces). I put them on the top of the bread too.

I took the cake scraps I had, put them in my food processor with some powdered sugar, liquor, extract, and rum and came up with (what I think are called) bon bons. I ended up liking the first batch so much I made a couple more cakes and continued.

I then rolled the mixture into balls and dipped them in candy melt. They say it gets better as it ages, so I'm planing on serving them next weekend. I have 80 all packed away in air tight containers.

Coffee and rum
Coconut and banana

Tomrorrow I'm thinking lemon squares or shortbread. Hmmm. I also need to make more lemon curd because I have too many leftover yolks.

EPG, I do that alot...finding substitutes for things I am used to using in my cooking, and can't find here. Other expats who live here help with suggestions and ideas, but I was pretty amazed the other night when I was talking with a friend and she said she couldn't make her peanut butter pie because she could not get Cool Whip. Cool Whip! I suggested that she whip some of the wonderful rich, thick cream we have here in abundance. It had never occurred to her....One of my best recent finds is a recipe for making Bisquick - sometimes you just gotta have it. If anyone wants it, I'll post it. Oh, and I have those double decker brownies in the oven. They smell wonderful.
Saludos, Karen

I hope you enjoy them Karen!
I think they're even better the second day.

Today, I have a brioche in the oven. It smells good. I've haven't tried this recipe, so I'm anxious to see how it turns out.

I made a Coconut Pound Cake yesterday. I'm taking it into work next week for a friend's birthday.

I had to put my kitty down on Friday, and it helped me feel a little better to get my hands in the flour and coconut and do something nice for someone else.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

Yesterday, I made focaccia with rosemary and Parmesan cheese - started it in the bread machine and baked it in the oven. It turned out great. Tonight's dinner will be New Mexico Pork Chop Bake (see the dinner thread).

So sorry to hear about your kitty, ChefJune. It is so hard to lose a friend. I think we will some day find out that cats are really higher on the evolutionary ladder than we are. I treasure the memory of each kitty I've had in my six and a half decades, and the three cats we currently share our lives with.

Saludos, Karen
