I have made a deal with myself to have no less than four bottles of rose in my fridge at all times until October. I love warm weather, I love the sunshine. I enjoy living in a place with real seasons, and can deal with the winter, but I definitely prefer temperatures 65 degrees and up. It’s when everyone wants to be outside, picnics in Central Park, shorts, rompers and as I mentioned, rose all day. Berries become a staple in dessert, and I cannot wait to start making pies filled with juicy strawberries and rhubarb. Sometimes carting a whole pie around to a friend’s BBQ or picnic can be burdensome. So why not make some handheld versions? Rompers + handpies = you being the classiest spring chick on the block.
Spring is here (For the most part)! It’s finally warm (Except when it’s not)! That should be the NYC chant right now. We have, for better or for worse, entered spring. I think the heavy sweater days are behind us. I think. We could still have a blizzard in two weeks, it’s happened before. BUT. As of right now I’m busting out the summer dresses, and rompers, and florals because it’s gorgeous outside (usually).
Call it what you will, this dessert is out of control. I know that holidays always get people in a tizzy, it ends up more stressful than you want. Usually for me it just means I’m working and people who come into the restaurant are mad they have to eat a meal with their family and take it out on me. So if you go out this Easter weekend and eat with family, at least pretend to like each other? And don’t order dessert. High tail it out of there and have THIS at home waiting for them instead. Who doesn’t love some ricotta filling surrounded by pie crust, SURROUNDED. Ugh it’s so simple it’s stupid. And your family will stop talking for a minute, and bask in the glory of your baking skillz. With a z.
