Please forgive my unusual absence in the blogworld. I have been *SUCH* a scatterbrain these days. I took my flash drive home and left it home for two consecutive days. For two straight days I worked straight through the day.
*Pause for Reaction*
I know! its crazy. I even started doing research on
having myself committed going back to school! Im such a nerd for school. Im 26 years old and I still dont know what i want to be when i grow up. But the good news is that giving it a lot of thought in my personal statement… or whatever piece of shit essay i have to write. Couldn’t i just add a link to this blog and say “here you go, here is my personal statement- BOOYAH!” But I dont think the admissions department would take a buddin psychologist who says BOOYAH on official documents seriously. Can you picture it?
“Dr. Food Snob, what’s the prognosis?”
“She’s demonstrating the behaviors of classic Border Line Personality Disorder, BOOYAH!”
What a funny world that would be. Wanna talk about food now? Me too.
The wonderful people at Ile de France sent me a cheese I haven’t tried yet, camembert (YUM). The plan was to try this cheese in a recipe and enter it in a recipe contest. The recipe contest isnt going to happen and you will see why later…
I had some Puff Pastry in the freezer from Thanksgiving and thought a baked cheese was in order.
I only had one sheet and i had a few different things to incorporate into my cheese… after defrosting the dough, i thought I would improvise.
I see three sections of dough… so i made three sections of cheese.
I decided on three fillings. Cherry, Blueberry and a salsa flavor. I sliced each cheese section in half…
added a layer of my desired spread..
sandwiched the cheese back together and pathetically wrapped it in the pastry dough.
I then placed the different cheeses on a baking sheet and baked for 15 mins at 400*.
Then this happened. Sloppy dough skills led to spillage EVERYWHERE. Making photo ops virtually impossible. DAMMIT. I will say that each and every one of these baked camembert pieces was divine! I especially liked the one with Salsa!
So I missed the boat on my recipe contest because while it sounds delicious, most of you eat with your eyes and I wont lie…the above picture looks like i murdered cheese. Murdered cheese tastes delicious but looks gross.
Got a great recipe that LOOKS awful but TASTES great???
