vegetarian salmon guest blogs, and some sweet puff pastry straws

January 23, 2011

A friend of mine, Lisa, has a great blog called The Splattered Apron. She tries a variety of recipes and is a bit of a flexitarian, so many of her recipes are vegetarian or easily adaptable. She also is brilliant in the realm of cooking that terrifies me: baking. Lisa asked me to guest blog this week, and so my latest recipe, Roasted Veggie Cornucopias, can be found there. Both the blog and the recipe are fantastic, so I encourage you to go visit.

AAM, my toughest food critic, gave this recipe 2 thumbs up!


Puff Pastry Straws

After you try the cornucopia recipe, you might discover that you have leftover puff pastry. A friend of mine showed me a simple recipe that solves the dilemma. She tried to sway us into moving to Portland, Maine under the drug of these sweet treats, accompanied by farm to table cooking that was superb. Her recipe is so simple, I am not going to do a formal recipe format.  All you do with your rolled out puff pastry is to sprinkle sugar on it, cut the pastry into triangles, and roll them to make straws. Brush raw egg on top to make them glossy and beautiful.


Bake the straws on a greased baking sheet for about 8-10 minutes at 400, and you have yourself a great treat!
