Weekend baking…

5 Apr

After working all week, I can’t think of anything more relaxing (and fun!) than spending the weekend in the kitchen, mixing up something delicious.  Unfortunately, though, sometimes life interferes.   Like, say, life in the form of throwing a final four watching party, volunteering at your CSA’s farm stand at the year’s first farm market, running innumerable errands, and weeding and composting the whole garden.  Which means that your relaxing cooking time, while never given up entirely, is squeezed into a smaller window.

Say, early Saturday and Sunday mornings.  Before the rest of the craziness descends.  But it can still yield deliciousness.  Especially when you’ve just received your latest issue of Cook’s Illustrated.  And even more so when said issue includes recipes for what it terms the *best* Blueberry Muffins and the *perfect* Chocolate Chip Cookie.

    These look very worth fitting into a busy weekend! Browned butter in a chocolate chip cookie sounds fantastic.

      Thanks! And, yes, the browned butter, *was* very good! Made the cookies even more rich tasting…
