bron – I adore your blog. You are such a fabulous cook and photographer. The honor is mine.

Tanna – I’m glad you enjoyed! I love following the links from other people’s roundups; I discover the best new blogs that way.

By: Tanna Sun, 21 May 2006 15:49:00 +0000 I just spent a time on bronmarshall’s site. Wow. I’m finding following food blog links
much like turning corners on a French canal barge trip, you think it can’t get better and
the next one takes my breath away as well! Thanks so much for the round up.
The cherries are divine. My husband doesn’t like me to cook with wine he likes better
to drink it but these cherries he loves. In fact he likes them so well, he’ll eat them
plain out of a bowl if I let him. You might try the salad or create something with the
cherries and the blue cheese; together they are spectaular.

This round-up was lovely. Nice post. I enjoyed your blog. I’ll be back.

By: Danielle Mon, 15 May 2006 12:16:25 +0000 suzun – I’m not sure we’ll be making more rhubarb pie this year, but if we do I will post about it. We made a rhubarb cream pie, which had a crust involving almond meal (the same one I posted about with my pear and basil tart, actually), and rhubarb cut into chunks, and a custard poured into the crust over the rhubarb before it was baked. So, it wasn’t a syrupy mess, and really holds together very well, because of the way the custard solidifies when baked.

Andrea – Isn’t it, though? I’m not the photographer, but I’m so happy to be living with this kitty.

By: Andrea Mon, 15 May 2006 01:33:05 +0000 I have to say that is a gorgeous photo of Katya, love the compostion

By: suzun Mon, 15 May 2006 00:51:29 +0000 i also made a rhubarb pie this week! i would cite some sort
of psychic food connection, but i think it’s just in season.

if you make it again you have to photograph and post pictures!

i used a new recipe that used lemon juice and zest and it
didn’t hold a candle to my recipe that uses a whole vanilla
bean. it did use arrowroot powder to thicken it up, though,
and that kept it from being syrupy out of control, and i have
that problem with strawberries.

By: Danielle Sun, 14 May 2006 11:33:59 +0000 Ivonne – I still haven’t made it, but mmm.

Tania – It’s just that I don’t like salad and never eat it. Nothing against yours in particular! But those sage-poached cherries look so brilliant.

Saffron Hut – I will make them, definitely!

Lisa – You could always visit and cook and eat with us. ^^ (Tempttempttempt.)

By: Lisa Sat, 13 May 2006 00:43:12 +0000 That photo popped up in my feed reader and I blinked. That is such a neat photo of her.

Those recipes sound wonderful. Coming here always makes me hungry and tempts me to be in the kitchen baking.

By: Saffron Hut Fri, 12 May 2006 19:55:34 +0000 Hi Danielle,

I followed the trackback to here. I’m thrilled that you enjoyed the post of chutneys and the paratha. Now you have to make them to enjoy the taste of these dishes too!!!

Thanks for the mention and happy cooking !!
