I have a list of things I want to do. One of them is to cook every recipe in a cookbook so I’m working my way through Rick Bayless’ Everyday Mexican. I’ve eaten a lot of good stuff. This series is the record of those adventures.
One of the funnest parts about the deck project has turned out to be the cooking sprees. Faced with the necessity of feeding our heroic husbands Dahlia and I had fun tearing our way through Rick recipes. Even better? When you are feeding four rather than two it almost seems compulsary that you make dessert every weekend and at some point you've made so much dessert that making shortbread cookies seems almost like making a snack rather than "dessert".
