last weekend i used the every day food magazine and made two chicken dishes...
made the chicken cutlets
and the grilled chicken (no picture).
we didnt have watercress salad on top. instead i made burnt broccoli which is broccoli cooked with garlic and olive oil until it is burned!
my daughter and i baked the chocolate layer cake.
here she is frosting it.
although the cake didn't LOOK perfect, it was a hit with anyone who ate it. by the end of sunday, it was almost ALL gone. (we had a big family day sunday with my brother's family and of course my sister's too.)
and then i tried to improvise (just what a mid level baker should do!) and bake an apple dessert for keith. i defrosted pate brise that alexis made months ago (while teaching me how to make it).
here it is rolled out.
and i cut up lots of apples and made two rustic tarts...didnt REALLY follow any recipe... i took ideas from this rustic apple and cherry galette and made two versions...one with cherries and one without.
although keith did NOT like these apple desserts, everyone else did. so i still have to bake him what he'll like...which is some thin crust with ultra thinly sliced apples and sugar... i think it is a phyllo dough he wants. and i'll use a mandolin for the apples. will hopefully do it this coming weekend!
