September Recipe Poll

 

will close it on Tuesday!

September Nominations

Please choose 3 total recipes to nominate–2 for our regularly scheduled Fridays and 1 for our new feature, CtBF: Extra Edition!

Our 2 regular Fridays are

September 2 and September 16

For Friday, September 30,  we will have our inaugural Extra Edition!

Here’s how it works: there are always some recipes people avoid due to an ingredient or technique outside of their norm. For any month with 5 Fridays, we will have an Extra Edition where we tackle one such recipe. The admins will look at the nominated recipes and choose 1 for the group to cook. It’s optional, but a great opportunity to try something new or different.

Please delineate your recipe nomination for Extra Edition from your “regular” nominations.

I will post the poll for the regular edition recipes this weekend. Otherwise, post below with any questions or concerns!

August Schedule

Okay, the votes are in with 2 clear winners!

August 5: Apricot crumble tart (p. 309)**

August 19: Cherry tomato crostini with homemade herbed goat cheese (p. 110)

 

 

**

for the tart, you can also save the apricot pits, extract the kernels (instructions on p. 312) and make the Apricot kernel ice cream David recommends. He mentions making a half recipe in the head notes. Even if you don’t make the ice cream, save the kernels in the freezer for when you do make it!

FYI I scheduled this first because a) it’s not too hard to make and b) apricots have such a short season in which they’re perfect and that’s either right now (July-August) in northern climes or it’s passed for some areas!
