Oh, I got so caught up with Birthday Week I forgot to announce the winner of the restaurant grade scooper - just perfect for making Cake Bites, the absolutely delicious, pop-one-in-your-mouth dessert that is sweeping the blogs.
Whitney, email me your mailing address and I will get a scooper right out to you!
I'm sure you will find many uses for this mini scooper. It makes the perfect size cookies, miniture cupcakes and of course cake bites!
Congratulations and enjoy!
Look, look, look! This is what I got yesterday from Carlo's Bakery (The Cake Boss) in Hoboken.
And this is what I got today fresh from Oregon Mushrooms:
Double Yum! Morels.
Guess what we're having for dinner tonight?
The Perfect Morel:
1/2 pound of fresh morels
4 ounces fresh, cold, unsalted butter
Very gently wash each morel just prior to cooking. Drain and dry on paper towels.
Melt butter on medium low in a heavy saute pan. When sizzling and slightly foamy, add morels. Saute quickly, shaking pan to coat each morel with butter. When morels are soft and have just a slight golden sheen to them, remove from pan. Sprinkle with sea salt and freshly ground pepper and serve.
A Cook's Notes: I am saving the other half pound until the weekend. I will quick saute the morels, let cool, then stuff with goat cheese and run them under the broiler. I WILL get back on my diet eventually - right? RIGHT??
