Thursday Links

I was excited to read in this month's Everyday Food they have a collection of lemon dessert recipes on the web. I can’t wait to try some of the recipes. You know how I feel about lemon!

Pioneer Woman featured Bakerella’s cakeballs. They are really cute, but they do remind me a little of the Wonder Bread balls of my youth. Don’t ask. They were gross. But, the cakeballs don’t look gross at all; in fact, I might have to try them for my son’s birthday next month.

If cakeballs aren’t your thing, you might want to check out the New York Time’s recipe for Whoopie Pies. A blast from the past much better than my Wonder Bread balls!

Did you happen to catch 60 Minutes with Alice Waters of Chez Panisse fame on March 15? Lisa at A Dinner Party really hits the nail on the head with her post about the spot. I happened to tune in just in time to catch Alice Waters. She was all about everyone eating healthy and organic food, but she seemed a little out of touch. I got the impression she didn't understand or didn't care how expensive it is to eat organic.

She invited Leslie Stahl to her home for a home cooked breakfast to demonstrate how easy it is to cook with local, sustainable and organic food. Breakfast looked beautiful, but I had to laugh when she broke an egg into a copper spoon, and cooked the egg over a blazing fire in the brick oven in her kitchen. I could only think that if I tried to cook eggs like this (camping anyone?), two eggs would have ended up on the floor, one in the oven, and I would've been lucky to have one egg to show for my efforts. Talk about slow food!

My other thought was that I hope she didn’t cook this on a Spare the Air Day, because, sheesh, how embarrassing to be fined for polluting the air when you’re trying to cook a healthy and organic breakfast on national television.

  1. How funny that you should mention Everyday Food's lemon dessert recipes. Before reading your post, I had just printed off a copy of Everyday Food's 'Lemon Cheesecake Squares' that Steven and I are going to make on Sunday. I'll have to let you know how they turn out. And thanks for the other links. I'll have to check them out. -Sandy
