happy birthday, Randy!

Just a quick post today to wish my love the happiest of birthdays today and share some of the recipes we've enjoyed in the past week. A surprise evening with friends last Saturday included the following tasty treats:
The empanadas take some work, but I feel like you can taste the hands-on goodness in the final product. The steak was incredible (didn't even need the chimichurri sauce, as Paul said, though it did provide some good tanginess and nice bright color). The cheesecake was also fantastic - the trick comes with the caramelization of the sugar and creates amazingly creamy, rich chocolate wonderfulness. It will definitely be my go-to cheesecake going forward.

Ok, off to make some more treats now: Saturday was pre-birthday celebration. Today's the real deal.

Happy birthday, my love!

birthday meringues

Made by my lovely husband to celebrate the day today (just one part of the amazing smelling feast he's currently pulling together in the kitchen). I don't think I'm allowed to see the recipe (they are his special treat), but I think you can find some related tips here
