FIRST MONDAY FAVORITE: MAY 2017

June. We are almost halfway done with the year. Unreal. Today is the First Monday of the month, so it’s time to showcase my favorite post of May. Not very easy to choose. Part of me would love to pick Kouign-Amann, because it was the best thing I made in a long time. But I prefer to choose something that was in my kitchen when I had no idea of the sadness about to hit my family. The bliss of not knowing what was waiting for us. So, I share a delicious Chicken Noodle soup, made earlier last month.

FIRST MONDAY FAVORITE: MAY 2017

Could someone tell 2017 that it is NOT a race to get to December?
Thanks.

Anyway, today is the First Monday of the month, so it’s time to showcase my favorite post of April. Easy job for me, very very easy, I do have a favorite, and it should not come as a surprise.

BLACK SESAME MACARONS!

Loved to design them, loved to make them, loved to share them with our departmental colleagues.  If you’d like to see the full recipe, click here

FIRST MONDAY FAVORITE: APRIL 2017

Today is the First Monday of the month, so it’s time to showcase my favorite post of March. You would think that I would share a recipe, but not this time. My favorite post of last month focused on fitness, my review of Jessica Smith’s program Walk Strong 6-week Total Transformation System. How could I not pick that post? A post that included a graphic that took me twenty years to compose must make it to the top of my personal list.

So here it is, in case you’ve missed it

FIRST MONDAY FAVORITE: MARCH 2017

Quick heads up: Karen just published a round up of breads in her blog, and I am thrilled to have one of my breads featured. Go visit and say hello with a click here

Yesterday was the First Monday of the month, so it’s time to showcase my favorite recipe of February. Come to think of it, 2017 could slow down a little, don’t we all agree? I am a tad late to join the virtual party, but better late than never.

One post was my favorite by far:

Lavender Macarons with White Chocolate Ganache…

How could I not choose this one to bring to the spotlight?

FIRST MONDAY FAVORITE: FEBRUARY 2017

First Monday of the month, and it’s time to share with you my favorite recipe from January. It was fun to look back at the month and realize there were so many great things happening in the Bewitching Kitchen. I had a tough time picking my favorite, but here it goes, The Carioca Cake! How could I not pick that one? One of the most stressful adventures I faced in the kitchen, but at least it had a happy ending…

If you missed it, here is the link back to it…

FIRST MONDAY FAVORITE RECIPE: JANUARY 2017

For many years I was a member of The Secret Recipe Club, and of course we all miss the excitement of posting our chosen recipe on the first Monday of the month.  After the club ended, Sid came up with a nice idea: we would post our favorite recipe from the previous month. Not necessarily the most popular by views or comments, but our own favorite. So here I am to reveal my personal winner for December.  Pistachio Creme Brûllée.  I simply loved everything about this one!  Yes, it calls for an ingredient that is not that easy to find (pistachio paste), but sometimes we need to fight through clouds to see the bright sun behind it.

Sid opened the collection with her own favorite, a Gingered Cranberry Chutney Compote… mouth-watering!
