hey folks, please pardon my absence - i've had a hell of a two weeks. in the last couple weeks i've made emergency trips to connecticut for a funeral and illinois for a family emergency; everyone is fine, and life goes on, but it has been extremely distracting - especially when the stressful icing on all of this is that i'm about to leave my current job. something came up rather suddenly, and now that it's all been finalized, i can finally share - in just a couple of weeks, i'll be the chef/baker behind a new coffee shop and bakery in brooklyn.
so. . . soon, and very soon, i'll have something new to post nearly every day. i'm working on creating a menu and have a list of ideas about 87 items long! if you have any suggestions. . . anything you'd like to see. . . please let me know, i'd love any input.
so, forgive me for two weeks of nothing - and for having nothing but these unbaked cinnamon rolls to post! i made them as part of my "interview" for the new place. interviewing for jobs in a kitchen is so much more fun than any other kind of job interview (not saying much, of course) - it's typically a couple hours of showing what you can do, and seeing if you'll be a good fit with the space. i made a couple kinds of galettes, cinnamon rolls, and some really tasty ham and cheese popovers; all very 'audrey' things to make, i suppose. i'm really chomping at the bit to get going full time.
i'm going to attempt to make dinner for my husband for the first time in weeks, and i'll certainly take photos to prove it. thanks for bearing with me and i promise not to drop off again!
