Dear blog. You may think I have deserted you, and I would not blame you if you did. I left without an explanation, without a glimmer of hope that I would return. But I am back – for good. I promise I will never leave you ever again. Will you take me back?
CHOCOLATE CHERRY & ALMOND CAKE
For the cake I used Julia Child’s Chocolate Almond Cake. I was very disappointed with the cake. It was dry and tasteless. But, the cherry filling made with red wine and oranges was fantastic, as well as the chocolate frosting.
HERB AND CHERRY TOMATO TART
Orgasm in your mouth! Buttery dough covered with mustard, parmesan, and herbs topped with sweet and juicy cherry tomatoes – topped with mozzarella and basil. Make this before tomato season ends!
Simple yet amazing.
GNOCCHI CAPRESE PASTA
Pan fried gnocchi with a bit of garlic, tossed with lemon pasta, cherry tomatoes with a bit of white wine and olive oil. Finish off with little mozzarella balls and fresh basil, and balsamic vinegar. The perfect summer pasta.
