    hi ho. i'm hosting february at my place in logan square. i have 2 cats who will be confined to my bedroom during the event, but fair warning if you have serious allergies. please bring 1 dessert that's appropriate to share; bring containers to take home others' desserts. i'll make a vegetarian supper which we will not be eating promptly at 4, as it takes time for people to arrive from all over chicagoland. (and i'm fine with that). i'm going to live dangerously and say there's room for 12, as there are always cancellations, even though my dining table only seats 8, or 9, or 10.... i'm happy to have people hanging out in the living room as well, so let's hope 12 people want to show up. i say: 'be there in logan square' on february 18th.

    Hi Joan! I hope you are staying warm? What a lovely thing to anticipate on a cold December evening. Please save a spot for me and I will think in what to make. Will be fun to ‘be there, in Logan Square’ with like minded bakers and fellow foodies. Celia

    I would love to join you for the dessert exchange. It has been awhile since I've baked. I am allergic to cats, but did you have the cats when you hosted a couple of years ago? I had no real problem then.

    It's taken me forever to choose what to make, but I think I'll be bringing the sweet potato cake with lime glaze from the current issue of "Milk Street."

    Bombolini—Italian Doughnuts are my offering today.
    Wild yeast/lievito madre only!

    Bomboloni—Italian doughnuts.
    Jim Lahey’s recipe in the Sullivan Street Bakery Coookbook.

    Filled!
    Golden passionfruit curd, sweet yellow filled with Meyer lemon curd, raspberry w/cardamom and scent of peach essence, showered in 2-citrus sugar.

    I broke one unfilled to have a sense of taste, texture, and appearance.

    Images at Instagram, sorry i can’t attach from my phone.
