Sometimes I go a little crazy with bread because I hardly ever make it. I love eating freshly baked bread so much, but making it isn't high on my list. I think it's because it doesn't necessarily require the amount of precision that I'm use to in my baking.
Cheddar & Chive Biscuits [03.07.2010]
Gruyere Popovers [03.07.2010]
Both these recipes are from Laurent Tourondel's cookbook. I just had to buy the book after having the Gruyere Popovers at BLT Steak in NYC a few years back. (BTW, I love BLT Burger too.) This was my first time making this biscuit recipe, but I look forward to enjoying the final product again...perhaps later today. :) I enjoyed them with a little bit of honey, but they can definately stand up on their own.
I know my popover picture is out of focus, but I just had to share how amazing these come out. They're crispy on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside, cheesy on top and so easy to make - what more could you want?
Back to my blurry photo...the natural light in the house is nearly non-existent! It's quite difficult for me to take a picture indoors without a tripod (which was the case). The only windows in the house face either north or south with the exception of the bathroom - not the ideal location for food photography. So my ideal photo shoot location is right outside the back door. My neighbors must think I'm weird.
