Fall Like

It has been a while since I played around with wool.
The "cold" front that is coming is making me want to pull this project back out and putting me in the mood to make soup. 




I took my second cooking class at Central Market last night.  It was Baking With Cheese, taught by Nick Malgieri.  I already had his cookbook Bake and really enjoyed the class.  He made, and we tasted: Cheese Souffle Toasts, Ricotta and Red Pepper Tart (which I want to make), Cream Cheese Scones, Lemony Ricotta Pie, Apple Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Icing (similar to the apple cake I made by adapting my carrot cake recipe), and Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Parfaits.  Nick had great stories to tell, and the class was a lot of fun.  I missed taking a class in September but do hope to take one per month.

I am thinking Tortilla soup for dinner tonight.  I also have some recipe testing to do for a party that we are planning.  Achiote Pulled Pork from my Rosa's cookbook, Peanut and Arbol Chile Salsa from Saveur and Tres Leches Cupcakes are on the list.  I'll let you know how they turn out.
