Good morning and Happy Canada Day! Make some butter tarts in honour of the day. Or have a Bloody Caesar (or a nice strong cup of tea) and then make them.
So...here we are in July already. souschef's challenge is still in effect (Brioche aux Fruits - a classically-shaped brioche, hollowed out, lined with chocolate, and filled with creme patissiere and berries). Deadline is July 14th, Bastille Day (or la Fete Nationale, to our French friends).
What's in your oven? Flag cakes for today or for the glorious Fourth? Nice things featuring summer fruit? Interesting cookies? Or good old favorites? We all look forward to hearing from everybody.
What are you baking these days?
