November Bouquet


I popped in to our fancy market for olives yesterday, and couldn't resist choosing some flowers for our dining table. It was so nice to spend a few moments picking out a vase and arranging the blooms at the kitchen counter.

Punitons




I've been a bit obsessed with the famous French bakery Poilane recently. I've never tried their bread, but decided to make their Punition (Punishment) cookies today using the recipe from Dorrie Greenspan's book, Paris Sweets. There's a charming little video on YouTube of the late Lionel Poilane making them for Dorrie:



The dough for these wee cookies is very easy to put together: butter, sugar, one egg, and flour pulsed one ingredient at a time in the food processor. The recipe calls for chilling the dough for four hours, but Dorrie Greenspan says you can skip that if you need to. I went ahead and used half of the dough right away and put the other half in the fridge for tomorrow.

These cookies are D E L I C I O U S.

A New Hat


I bought a new hat today! I had to choose between the same style in all black and a caramel one with a black velvet band. This will be more versatile, but I reserve the right to add the splashy caramel to my wardrobe later!
