Recipes! February! Hosting!

Looks like we have winners with Foccacia and Boca Negra!

Why don’t we make foccacia (p. 143) for 2/5 and Boca Negra (p. 253) for 2/19. That way if anyone wants to make the decadent cake for Valentine’s day, they’ll have a few days to get out of the sugar coma so they can write. ;-)

Now, who wants to host?

November recipes, who wants to host ’em?

Drumroll please….  by random drawing (literally names of recipes thrown into a baseball cap):

November 6. 2012 – Buttermilk Crumb Muffins on page 207

November 20, 2012 – Best Ever Brownies on page 331

And I’m just saying that my birthday is on Tuesday the 13th, so if anyone feels the need to do any extra baking and then ship it my way, that would be fine.  ;-)

Leave a comment if you’d like to be a November host!

July Recipes! Anyone out there anxious to host?

I am super stoked about this month. I have vowed to make one pie per week for the entire summer. This is to remedy the fact that I am an absolutely horrible pie maker. When I say horrible, I mean it. (This is Laurie, not Jules, I am sure Jules is a fab pie maker. I just know she is.) I was so excited that several pies/tarts were suggested for this month. However, we did not want to overload the month on sweets, so there is savory as well. Happiness for all!

July 3, 2012- Hazelnut Biscotti, p. 315.

July 17, 2012- Semolina Bread, p. 102.

July 31, 2012- Blueberry Nectarine Pie, p. 384.

If you would like to host one of these recipes (two needed each recipe), please throw your name in the hat by leaving a comment below.  This is a NO CHAT post.  I’ll close this post on the 22nd and announce the hosts on the 23rd.

Interested in Hosting in March?

The Recipe Schedule for March is as follows:

March 6, 2012- Rugelach, pages 325-327.

March 20, 2012- Irish Soda Bread, page 214.

The job of the Host is to post the actual recipe on your blog. All members then link to your blog for the week.

We need 2 hosts for each week. If you are interested in hosting, please comment below with your choice, Irish Soda Bread or Rugelach.

Hosts will be selected randomly. (Most likely names in a hat because our comments are not numbered.) Remember once you host, you move to the end of the line to allow others the same chance.

One last day to throw your hat in the ring. Comments will close on this post tomorrow, 2/16/12.

This is a NO CHAT post. All chatter will be removed.

Baking with Julia: February Recipe Schedule

The first month of Baking with Julia is here! We have been looking forward to the start of the new book since fall, and here we go. I hope you like the recipes we have picked for the first month.

February 7, 2012- White Loaves, on pages 81-82. (Hosted by Laurie and Jules)

February 21, 2012- Chocolate Truffle Tartlets, on pages 382-383. (Hosted by Steph, Spike, Jaime and Jessica)

From here on out, recipes will be picked by nominations and lottery for hosts. Everyone will have a chance to host that way. We will try to choose one simple and more difficult recipe per month. Look out for a recipe nomination post at the beginning on February.

TWD December Hosts. Sigh.

I’m so excited and sad all at the same time.  I’m posting now so everyone can budget time, ingredients, and oven space.  Again, we are doubling up for a couple of the weeks.  I can’t believe this is my last host post!

Without further ado:

December 6, 2011 – Kayte of Grandma’s Kitchen Table chose Honey Almond Fig Tart on page 373 AND/OR Nicole of Bakeologie chose Earl Grey Madeleines on page 169.

December 13, 2011 – Laurie of Slush chose Unbelievably Good Chocolate Blueberry Ice Cream 433 on page AND/OR Julie of Someone’s in the Kitchen chose Puffed Double Plum Tart on page 378.

December 20, 2011 – REWIND

December 27, 2001 – Dorie herself chose Kids’ Thumbprints on page 163.

That’s it.  Those are the final five recipes in the book.  Sigh.
