Snow Falls Like Powdered Sugar

Now that Minneapolis has had its first dusting of snow, I can’t help but think about the holidays and some of my favorite sweet treats. Start thinking about your upcoming events and what type of baked good you’d like to share. I’m accepting orders from my holiday menu (above)  through the end of November, for delivery through Dec. 20.

Joyeux anniversaire à moi!

Ever since I was a child, I’ve had a fascination with all things French. The obsession continues, even to my 27th birthday! To celebrate, I made an orange cake with pink buttercream frosting, adorned with honey-lemon madeleines. These shell-shaped sponge cakes are light and taste good even without the cake!

I’ve been asked to share my recipe for Madeleines. I got this one from the Williams-Sonoma Web site. I thought anything from French Chef Hubert Keller, who is the owner of Fleur de Lys Restaurant in San Francisco, would be authentic and delicious. I think you’ll agree.
