What I’m Digging
Happy Friday, friends! It’s a frigid 28 degrees here in the cove this morning. Hello, winter!
I’ve got a Small Measures post up today on Design Sponge. In keeping with all things pie, it’s about making perfect pie dough. These are the tips and the recipe that I turn to, time after time, to turn out flawless pie crust. In fact, I did this very thing yesterday, as our friends Ric & Jen are having us over for homemade banh mi sandwiches tonight. I took my Coconut Cream Pie with Vanilla Bean Whipped Topping recipe from A Year of Pies and gave it a little Vietnamese edge, infusing the custard with star anise and lime juice. Oh! Yes!
Also, I’m chatting about gleaning pearls of wisdom from watching chickens over on Verve. Beak Here Now, indeed.
In other news, here’s a smattering of this’s and that’s that caught my attention this week:
*Tips for brewing your own cider.
*Another of Sandy’s tragedies.
I’m hosting another event for my new book on Sunday. This one will be the 9th, of 16. I’m over halfway finished!
Wherever you go this weekend, whatever you do, and whomever you do it with, may it be grand!
*Per usual, I always dig Huxley the mostest, especially with his new fondness for his Harry Potter glasses from his Halloween costume!
