If you turn on the oven now, in an hour you can have the kitchen smelling amazing and these buttery, mildly sweet orange and cream mini scones standing beside your mug of tea – coffee for me please.
They are by far my favorite recipe; no surprise since it comes from Nancy Silverton, one of my most admired bakers ever.
The combination of peanut butter and chocolate is old as *fill in the blank*, yet it never amazes me how amazing it is, as redundant as it sounds. Even here, where dulce de leche rules, especially with chocolate, these fudgy peanut butter brownies were the belle of the ball way after the pan had only some crumbs left.
Yes, baked ricotta rocks. So easy and so good.
I realized a few months ago that no matter how much I try, I always find a way to pile up more cookbooks onto my life. The last batch was virtual, so I don’t even notice my buying is out of control again. Except for the credit card bill. No, don’t worry, it’s not really something to be worried about, but hey, the buy-with-1-click button is not helping. Just saying.
