It's a perfect morning here in Wisconsin. It's the kind of day we dream about in January when it's too cold to go outside and your eyelashes feel like they're going to freeze.
Not this morning. The birds are chirping, the breeze in perfect and I got to enjoy fresh strawberries with yogurt and granola on my deck with a steaming cup of coffee.
I have a few favorite things I'd like to tell you about. I'll keep it short but they're very fun and may make your life easier.
Living here in the Dairy State, we have all kinds of dairy events. June is dairy month, and events are happening all over. Cows on the Concourse brings cows to the Capital square in Madison. Each county has a dairy breakfast where a farm is featured and breakfast is served to hundreds of visitors. Today I'm making butter. Make from the best organic heavy cream. It's easy and so delicious!
What could be better than make from scratch flaky, delicious croissants and pain au chocolat. This is one of my very favorite classes to teach. Here's the recipe for making your very own French vienoiserie at home.
What could be better than using three sticks of butter and pounding it into a cute little square!
Lemon and Blueberries go so well together. Make this for a delicious Spring brunch.
Happy St. Patrick's Day! Here are some authentic recipes straight from Ireland.
Where do I purchase my equipment? Many pieces come form Paris. Here's where to shop in the City of Light.
A Wisconsin tradition. Here's how to make this this classic cocktail.
