I forgot to post an experiment that was inspired by a talk during our FSJ trip. We were talking about how awesome “Monkey Bread” is, and wondered if it would be just as awesome if it was garlic butter bread? So here are the pics of my attempt:
And here is the finished product. The dough puffed up beautifully so the balls ended up being less buttery than I expected. So I served with a butter garlic dipping “sauce”:
So, it turns out, you can definitely make it. And it rocks!
The recipe is too simple to make a whole page for, just take bread dough (I do have bread dough recipes here), make into small balls and dip into garlic butter. Use real minced garlic. 🙂 Then pile in and bake!
Another experiment that was delicious I put into a recipe here.
It’s called “Dessert Bows” and it’s wontons stuffed with rice pudding, nutella or lemon curd and strawberries. The leftovers made an awesome breakfast the next day:
I may need to stop getting all creative in the kitchen for a while, as we have to move. Again. Our rental landlords decided they wanted to sell the house, despite giving us verbal assurance that they would not put it up for sale while we were renting it. Sigh. No new place yet! Another sad note: Parfait cup cracked in the dishwasher. Goodbye, parfait cup. It was sweet having you around.
