And on a side note….

August 15th would have been Julia Child’s 100th birthday.  We’ve had a request for a special LYL day for those folks who would like to make and blog about a Julia recipe.  Look for it on the 15th!

Alternate for September 30

I am going to give the option of doing an alternate recipe in lieu of the Creme Brulee.  I personally do not own a butane torch, and I think its iffy putting it under the broiler. So, if you do not own a torch and would rather do a “rewind”, feel free. Check out the completed TWD recipes and pick one that you have not completed. If you are brave and want to try the broiler instructions, may the force be with you.

Bake on!


If you do not have an ice cream maker…

Hey ladies and gents–

Next week’s recipe is ice cream, and we have given the option to make a past TWD recipe if you do not have an ice cream maker. However, two very helpful links have been submitted on how to make ice cream without a maker. I thought I would link to them both here. If you feel like going old school, these are good resources on what ya need to do.

How To: Make Ice Cream Without an Ice Cream Maker by the kitchn

I am looking forward to seeing results from both maker and non-maker methods!

Alternate Recipe

If you are without a stand mixer and would rather not tough it out with the brioche by hand, you are able to bake up a past recipe from the archives. :) There are lots of goodies to choose from.

However, I know several people did tough it out with the brioche previously, so if you can give tips on this method, please do do! Thanks in advance!

Alternate recipe for May 20, 2008

Hey ladies and gents… I know a lot of you may not have the correct pan for next weeks recipe. The alternate option is to go back and make one of the past recipes. We have covered quite a bit, and there are many in the back log that you may not have been a member for. Find one you like and bake it up!
