Pingo, I finished the frittata under the broiler as per the directions in Giada's recipe - no need to master the flip your mother did to arrive at a lovely, bubbly puffy result. You could whip up that bacon chive one in a jiffy, just use an oven safe skillet and it will be just as good as Mom's. Nice of you to send DH with Easter decorated Wowie cupcakes for his celebration of the end of their season. He'll be the hit of the party!
tt, how pretty!! I've never used a piping bag of any sort. Too lazy; I just smear frosting on with a spatula. That really does add fun pizzazz, though!
Obbie, you've been busy, too, very nice. I'm sure they'll be appreciated and thoroughly enjoyed.
I just bought dates to dehydrate and food process into "date sugar," an unprocessed, unrefined substitute for granulated or brown sugar, I'm using in overnight cinnamon buns
(spelt) for tomorrow morning. DH will be surprised, I think, if he doesn't come in and see me making them this afternoon. I'd love to be able to use good ol' white flour and sugar, but that would set him up for a miserable day...can't do that.
Gracie is recovering in her crate (hiding from her mean Mommy) from her morning of torture: inner ear cleaning, teeth cleaning, Furminating (my word, the gobs of undercoat that came off that dog!), nail clipping, and K9 Advantage application. She thinks she's abused, but she sure doesn't look it. :)
Well, it's after 1...I should see if DH is ready for lunch. Then, after he eats, I'll clandestinely whip up those cinnamon buns and hide them in the fridge.
