Sadly, this blog is a bit sleepier than I'd like these days. Pop over here if you'd like to know why.

English Muffins & Chansons


English Muffins

It somehow seemed appropriate to listen to pretty French melodies while "baking" English muffins yesterday morning, especially this one.

My former (but current in spirit) roommate has a lovely tradition of waking up early on Valentine's day and preparing home made English muffins for her roommates. She's done it every year... except the year she lived with me! Yesterday we remedied that little blip.

Homemade English Muffins

English muffins are surprisingly easy to make. I wrote "baking" up there because you don't actually bake them. Instead, after the dough rises you place the muffins on a skillet. I don't have the exact recipe because she found it in a magazine... but I hope to get a copy of it soon. (Did you read that, Molly?)

These were so good loaded with jam and brie. It was a delightful little morning and over much too soon.
