let's talk about smitten kitchen. do you visit this food blog? it's delightful and delicious. in addition to joy the baker (hello polenta!), it's a favorite site to visit. i've yet to make a recipe that i didn't love.
this weekend i made deb's lemon ricotta pancakes for a sunday brunch feast. the flavors were amazing. the texture was a bit mushy when it should have been fluffy, but i think that's due to me under-whipping the egg whites. the cooked apples were yummy, and a little side of bacon balanced out the sweet quite well.
last night i made the strawberry-rhubarb crumble. i cut the sugar slightly, topped it with vanilla ice cream, and called it perfect. my folks came over to enjoy it with us.
other smitten kitchen favorites are my go-to pumpkin muffin recipe and blueberry muffin recipe.
ps- deb also has a cookbook. i don't have it, but given the quality of her recipes on the blog i'm sure it's wonderful.
