#52NewFoods: Edamame

The Petits Chefs worked with edamame last week for their #52NewFoods Challenge.

Tuesdays with Dorie (Baking Chez Moi): Brown Butter and Vanilla Bean Weekend Cake

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is all about simplicity.  This Brown Butter and Vanilla Bean Weekend Cake (p6)  is a great advertisement for simple ingredients shining.
