No WordPress! No you did NOT just post only half of the post that I stayed up late typing. No, I refuse to believe that you would be so mean. But here I am the next morning, reading my published post and noticing that it doesn’t make a heck of a lot of sense with the first paragraph missing. If I can’t even rely on you to fulfil the one function for which you were built, then really, why should we continue to be friends?
Yes, here I am, trying to remember what the heck I wrote last night right before hitting the “publish” button and going to bed. It had something to do with being a bad Dorista because I have been on the road and not had time to check in with my fellow cooks to see what they have been up to. It may have also mentioned that I haven’t been in my kitchen in weeks and how grateful I am that our super team of admins got the April recipes up so early so that I could (kind of) participate. I don’t really remember anything else, but I’m certain that it was some of the most brilliant writing that I’ve ever managed and is now forever lost in the WordPress circuits. Sigh, on to the bit that did actually get published, hopefully next week will be better….
Even so, it’s been a hectic few weeks and my participation has been pretty low. I think I’ve only read one or two of your olive sable posts… hope I wasn’t the only one who love those. And now, this week I’m posting without pictures because those happen to be at home on my personal computer and I forgot to upload them before I left. Oh well, such is life sometimes.
So, what do I remember about this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe, Financiers? I remember that the dough was very different from any I had made before, calling for browned butter and cooking the egg white mixture over low heat. I remember being impatient because the dough then had to sit overnight in the fridge. And I remember that the little cakes were awfully tasty. Even better with a cup of tea. My favorite financiers are pistachio so some day I would like to try my hand at making those.
