My other passion in life is Baking. So, when the peonies are hibernating, I switch gears into baking and cooking. I take this silent time to experiment with new recipes as well as bake my old favorites. Of course, we do gain a little weight in the process.
A new lemon recipe that I tried recently is the Lemon Layer Cake with Lemon Curd and Mascarpone from Bon Appetit.
So rich and decadent, especially for a lemon lover like me.
Then there’s a duck breast recipe that I searched for. Michael and I tasted it at the Thai Galare in Sequim, Wa. It’s called Thai Red Duck Curry. It has pineapple and rambutan and red curry sauce. The combination of flavors is so great. What a treat!
Both of these are worthy of serving on special occasions.
And for breakfast, a couple of old favorites: Old Fashioned Sourdough Pancakes with blueberries and Blueberry Scones (Cooks Illustrated recipe)
I love baking and cooking. Being recently introduced to Pinterest. I am discovering recipes that other enthusiast have either tried or are going to try. It’s like making the search for recipes to try easier. Days at the Peony Farm during the months of December to March is about cooking.
And the peonies sort of take a backstage. However, I found the time to setup a Shopping Cart for Peony Farm to feature our peonies for sale, which is also presented in our website: www.ilovepeonies.com
Come and visit us. Peony Farm events are posted on our website. You can also click the picture to go there directly.
And I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that you can order your bare root peonies now.
