Thinking about our 2nd Anniversary…

I’ve been thinking ahead to Tuesdays with Dorie’s 2nd Anniversary, which will be on January 1, 2010. Last year, Dorie herself was kind enough to pick a recipe and play host in honor of our 1st anniversary. This year, I’d like for us all to celebrate. So, with that in mind, for the week of January 5, 2010 we will all vote on a recipe to make. I would like it to be something for a special occasion. Ladies and gentlemen, take out your books and pick a recipe that you’d like to bake in honor of TWD’s 2nd Anniversary. Leave a comment on this post. We will narrow them down at the beginning of December and then vote again.

Lastly, I am not sure I say it enough, thank you for baking along with me every week. I never in my wildest dreams imagined that I would still be doing this 2 years, let alone, that hundreds of people would be doing it with me. I know I do not comment on your blogs as much as I should either, but, I enjoy each and every one. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Much love,

Laurie

  1. I’ll leave another note with a recipe suggestion, but let me just say I’m already worried about when we hit the end of the road! What will we do on Tuesdays?

  2. In response to megan. When we are finished with this one we need to go to Baking With Julia by Dorie or he new one. Doesn’t she have one coming out??

  3. My initial thoughts: the anniversary recipe should be something that most of the bakers can bake and would enjoy — probably not chocolate, and not a strong focus on alcohol or coffee, since so many of our members do not use those ingredients.

    Megan, I’ve got a couple of baking books I’d love to “bake through” once we’re done with Dorie’s. We do have some time still – luckily!

  4. I’m gonna go ahead and ditto Kayte. She obviously knows how to celebrate an anniversary. :P

    Just checkin’

  5. Gosh – duh – teach me to read ALL of the comments before I rattle my trap, huh? Anyway, I guess there is no way to please all the people all of the time. SOOOOooooooo, maybe, we could do something like you did this month Laurie, where there is more than one choice to choose from. Maybe there would be,…. oh, lets say just for fun three different ones we could choose from and interpret to our liking. How about that?

    (That’s one way to get what you want right?) hehe

  6. I suggest Tarte Tatin (pg 312). It’s a classic French dessert, and she gives several options for the crust, plus a couple of different fruit options.

    • Yay for the Cocoa-buttermilk Birthday Cake!! Second that. Need something festive for this.

      The cheesecake would make a really elegant anniversary post!!

    • Amen to that. I was reading the comments to see if anyone had suggested the Cocoa-Buttermilk Birthday Cake or not yet. I would love to do either of these two as well!

  7. I’ve been wanting to make the tarte tatin for a while, so it would get my vote. My birthday happens to fall on the first Tuesday of the year, so the Cocoa Buttermilk Birthday Cake would also be great!

  8. I’m voting Cocoa Buttermilk Birthday Cake. I just found a picture on the web that made me want to lick my computer screen…which can’t be healthy.

  9. I’m not even sure if I am allowed to vote (yet), but when I read the post my first thougth was: “tarte tatin” – no question!
    It’s a reference to Dories home, it’s a classic, it can be modified in various ways.

    Tarte Tatin!!
