It’s a beautiful, sunny Sunday in Vancouver. If you live on the East Coast, you probably hate me for mentioning it. I’m sorry (not sorry). Don’t worry, I’m having a hard time enjoying it because I’m so congested I’ve gone through 2 rolls of toilet paper blowing my nose.
I didn’t even eat any chocolate or drink any wine for Valentine’s Day yesterday because I couldn’t taste anything. It wouldn’t have been worth it. Instead, I ate some spicy szechuan food in the hopes it would clear my nostrils. It did, for a minute.
Earlier this week, I did some baking from Baking Chez Moi: Recipes from My Paris Home to Your Home Anywhere (affiliate link). I made these Crispy-Topped Brown Sugar Bars. Oh man, this recipe is a keeper. The cookie part of this bar is rich with brown butter and caramel notes. I wish I had made a double batch.
They did not last long around here. Since it’s not my recipe to share, you will have to check out the book to get the details.
I’m loving this book so much, I will probably work my way through the whole thing in no time!
