The Sistine Chapel exhibit


A ccouple of friends and I went to see the Sistine Chapel exhibit in Charlotte, NC several weeks ago. We were fascinated to see the art work, and I remain dumbfounded to imagine how challenging it would have been for Michelangelo to produce such stunning works of art on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.

Warm Strawberry Puff


This recipe was cut out of an old copy of Sift magazine, a publication by King Arthur Baking Company. if you haven't checked out the recipes on their website and an issue of Sift, you might want to give it a try - they have great recipes in addition to fine ingredients and baking supplies. 

Here's the link for the recipe for this tasty Warm Strawberry Puff.

With just 7 ingredients and no leavening for the "puff", this creates a large, light, and airy puff. The hardest part of the whole process is then folding it around the strawberries! It's so puffy that the berries want to escape!
