    Hi all! I'm planning to host the July dessert exchange at my house in Evanston - Sunday, July 25 at 4:00 (back to our typical time). As usual, it will be a light dinner followed by sharing desserts. We'll try to be outside, but in case of inclement weather (or very hot weather), everyone who attends MUST be fully vaccinated because we have young children at home, and it would be good to have the option to come inside if needed.
    I'm already planning to make lemon verbena sorbet and possibly also mint ice cream, based on the herbs we have growing in our garden. I hope to see everyone then!
    Attendees:
    LauraS
    JustJoan
    JennyIL (maybe +1)
    irisarbor
    suef
    kalamazoogal
    misseyblu1
    mollyanne

    Hi,

    There is a family event right about this date. Until I know when this may happen, I cannot commit yet. My feeling is likely I cannot, but nothing is firm.

    Regards,

    Is there still room for one more? I was recently given the recipe for a lemon drizzle Bundt cake that was my favorite when I was a young child. I’ve made lots of lemon desserts since but nothing compares. Would love to see if the memory holds up!

    I'm working on caneles today to see if they will work in a silicone mold. the first recipe I tried was a disaster… I will make a big batch for Sunday if these turn out.

    caneles it is. caneles get their flavor from being thoroughly carmelized, but my first batch earlier this week was probably a little too burnt for most people so Im dialing down the baking time today. These are small but mighty in flavor. and I'm so pleased that an imexpensive silicone mold can do the job of the pricey copper molds that are Traditionally used for caneles. erin mcdowell's. cookbook, THE FEARLESS BAKER, Provided the recipe.

    Laura was a fantastic host. She had H with her and S nearby.

    Great energy. Lovely food. Great company.

    Thanks!
