Focaccia is fun to make, because you get to poke it and make the little dimples all over. Its also super delicious from the oven. Soft but a little crispy around the edges from the oil. We have a ton of rosemary growing, so I was able to use very fresh herbs. I based mine on this recipe.
Our living room gets a lot of afternoon summer sun, so its the preferred dough rising area, but its been cloudy lately. So I tucked the dough into the blankets to rise.
I think that the herbs we grow smell the best, but I’m extremely biased. I want to try to make a wreath with all our sage soon.
And here we have the final product. I want to start a petition that the fat chunks of pepper is the only pepper allowed. Its my favorite.
Did you do any baking last weekend? We wanted to make a pie for the long weekend, and we finally decided on chocolate cream. I topped it with whipped cream and chocolate shavings, and it looked really pretty, but everyone was so eager to dig in that I didn’t get a photo. It tasted even better than it looked!
We’ve been testing different sourdough biscuit recipes. I wake up a tiny bit earlier, so I’ll have time to mix up a batch after our morning run. This part is crucial for controlling leftovers. No one in the office will turn down a warm, homemade biscuit first thing in the morning.
Our favorite biscuits are the super flaky ones, but we are still perfecting our ideal recipe. In the meantime, we need to stock up on more jam!
We made a version of this pie recently. We made a cookie crust instead, and used half lemon juice and half lime juice. It was a quick, sweet, bright summer treat. You definitely don’t want to skip the whip cream on top!
