I've some how made it through my first week of work back from holidays, and it since it's student induction time it's usually the busiest week there is for my department. A great way to battle the jet lag, I tell you.
So this week's round-up is simply covering things that make me want to eat them. The recipes and the stories I'm currently coveting, and are helping me to escape mentally back to simpler times, back to the time (just a week ago!) when I was on vacation...
- Wendy at A Wee Bit of Cooking reminds me of the pleasures of having an apple tree (sob!) and of making apple-based treats to eat. I do have one jar of apple sauce left which might come into service for this recipe...
- Chubby Hubby has re-created some restaurant-grade macaroni and cheese. There is never a wrong time to covet macaroni and cheese and this one is simply drool-inducing.
- Cook and Eat has made some lovely little almond plum cakes in ramekins, which look both simple and fantastic.
- Ivonne at Cream Puffs in Venice has dredged up childhood memories of my Italian neighbors and their pantry dedicated to home made tomato sauce by announcing that it's her family's weekend to make their sauce. It's this time of year that I wish I were Italian.
Enjoy your weekends!
