So I was doing a bit of reflecting the other day, thinking about blogging, and why I’m here, what I want to say and what it means for me to be here.
And I realized that, aside from my friends who just so happen to follow me here, I’m not really sure who you are. You occasionally comment, and sometimes share how you can relate to the stories I tell, or which recipes you’ve tried. Sometimes those comments lead me to your website, where I find that you are telling compelling stories and taking beautiful photographs of your own.
But sometimes not.
So, all this to say, we talk all about me on this site – my thoughts, my experiences, my favourite foods, my stories – but I would like to hear about you.
Indulge me in the comments box below: What’s your name? Where are you from? Do you have kids or pets or dogs or hamsters? What do you like making in the kitchen? What do you like eating? Which are your favourite blogs to catch up on on a rainy day? What’s the thing that makes you who you are?
Thanks. It’s nice to meet you. I’m so glad you’re here.
I used the same croissant recipe for these as I did for my first croissant experiment, the one where I filled them with goat cheese, pistachio and chili honey. For the filling, I boiled down 3 cups of chopped rhubarb with 3 tablespoons of sugar. I wanted the rhubarb to retain enough tartness to cut through the buttery dough. I filled each croissant with about a tablespoon of ricotta and a tablespoon of the rhubarb mixture before wrapping them up.
If you’ve never tried making croissants before, it’s definitely something to cross off your culinary bucket list. They’re not hard, but they do require a lot of rising and waiting, rising and waiting. It’s a good project for a rainy day.
