Also, just read Amelia Morris' book Bon Appetempt: A Coming-of-Age Story (with Recipes!) and you should too!!!

I just read this and it is wonderful. If you've read my blog at all, you know I'm a big fan of Amelia Morris' blog and her book Bon Appetempt: A Coming-of-Age Story (with Recipes!) is just lovely and perfect. Seriously, I took a deep breath and sighed when it was over. Very satisfying read.

If it's not your bag, which it definitely will be if you're reading my blog in the first place, give it to the food lover in your life. Seriously. I would have asked Jon to get it for me for Valentines Day, but I already have it so, sorry bud, you're on your own;-).  

I hope to write more about it soon because, as a fledgling food blogger and someone who has always hoped to use her creativity to somehow make a mark for herself, it definitely got my wheels turning. 

A Taste of Summer: Tracy Obolsky's Sweet Corn Panna Cotta with Blueberry Compote

This is yet another recipe I made a long time ago (last summer!) and haven't gotten around to sharing until now. I'm seriously out-of-whack about blogging these days, but I intend to get my act together, really I do. 

So here's Tracy Obolsky's Sweet Corn Panna Cotta with Fresh Blueberry Compote from Food & Wine Magazine. Yum!

It's really delicious, easy to make, and quite elegant too. I followed the directions in Food and Wine Magazine exactly. I know that corn is seriously out of season right now but this recipe is really great and I'm pretty sure we could all use a tasty reminder of summer's happy bounty right about now, am I right? 

Plus, maybe you froze some of the summer corn from your CSA? Or maybe you just wanna bookmark this recipe and wait until summer to make it? Or maybe you just grab some corn, fresh or frozen, and go for it. Click on the link above for the recipe and let me know what you think. You'll see that it didn't get rave reviews, but I think it's a delicious dish and I definitely plan to make again.
