|I need to learn how to drizzle|
When I saw that the recipe for this week was Nutella Tartine I was worried it was going to be a long and complicated recipe. So I was thrilled when I looked at the recipe and saw how easy it was. I was also excited because I love anything chocolate and orange, I just made Meyer Lemon-Cara Cara Orange Marmalade a couple of weeks ago, and I had some left-over Bubble-Top Brioche in the freezer that I wanted to use up.
We had some friends over for dinner after work last Friday, and since I knew I'd still be cooking when they got here I wanted to have a small appetizer. I decided it was a perfect time to make the Sweet and Spicy Cocktail Nuts recipe that I missed. I woke up early on Friday morning to make these and was pretty annoyed by the instruction to lift the nuts out of the coating and shake off the excess egg whites one-by-one. I don't have that much patience (especially at 5:30 in the morning!) so I did this in small batches, and then got the nuts into the oven. Despite the annoyance, we all loved these. They are strangely addictive. I'm still partial to Ina Garten's Chipotle and Rosemary Roasted Nuts, however. They were easier to make and everyone who tried them raved about the flavor combination. I think nuts are a great appetizer, though, and you can never have too many great recipes.
I also made the Basque Potato Tortilla recipe for dinner this week. We really enjoyed this, and I got to check another recipe off of my list of recipes to catch up on. The ingredients were simple, it was quick and easy, and I love eggs and potatoes.
