Easter


cranberry muffins, originally uploaded by rhino75.

I promise, I promise, I promise that this is DEFINITELY the last time I will put up a large photo of some home baking instead of a proper post - for at least a month, anyway :-). But they do look good, don't they? And it's just been really hectic, what with Sis!!'s visit to Paris, pub quiz victories, baby Iris's first birthday party, Madonna's new single etc. etc.. Easter got off to an excellent start with Petite Anglaise's reading at W.H. Smith (they still have signed copies left so ruuuuuunnn), champagne, dinner at the Pause-Café and partying with Rachel, Mrs. LOG and, unexpectedly, Nardac, plus rather a lot of muffin and madeleine-making. All topped off today by a stupendous six-hour lunch with the delicious Meg. Anyway, I shall do my best to resume normal service now the holiday's over. Just so's you know, Rhino75's obsessions this week are "One Tree Hill" (so many teens, so little time - but have managed to work my way through four seasons), Madonna (natch, isn't everyone obsessing about "4 Minutes"? I LOVE it) and the Deep South. Things that are not floating my boat are my To Do list, "Juno" (nice soundtrack, meh movie) and imminent work on my beams. Pffft.

That photo is so very porny. I feel honored to have eaten one (sans crème) before our lunch. What a perfectly indulgent day.

Oh, master baker, please tell me -- what is cream of tartar and do they have it in France? And why is it that every one of my recipes seems to have some sort of mystery baking chemical that I've never heard of and can't get my hands on?

Yeah! What a weird party though... I've got the flu now. Boooo

The Pause-Café is only a couple of blocks from our apartment in the 11é. We will definitely have to try that once we get to Paris in April.

Ohhhh, I loved Juno!! Given all the dark, heavy-duty movies out there these days, I needed something lighter, and that flick just hit the spot for me. Loved the music too. Surprised you didn't like it at all!

Muffin tease! Any more of this and I won't be able to read your blog on an empty stomach.
