martha strikes back

well if i have returned back to blogging, then shouldn't martha?

welcome (back) to martha mondays! inspired by my previous forays into tuesdays with dorie, martha mondays is pretty simple. i have her baking handbook and i want to try (almost) every recipe in here and i thought it would be fun to have some company sometimes too. i love learning while i bake, and learning what works and what doesn't. now that it's summer (here) i find myself dying to get back into her book again with all those tarts i have wanted to try.

martha mondays event

so here it is ...

martha mondays will still be a bi-weekly bake. i will choose a recipe to try out from her baking handbook, and will post my results every other monday. you are welcome to join me, sit one out, and join again - whatever strikes your fancy. all that i ask is you link back to my announcement and send me a quick email to marthamondays (at) gmail.com so i can create a link for you too.

to (re)start it off, i'm picking one that has struck my fancy since the beginning, but for which i have been patiently awaiting the arrival in the farmer's market: pistachio tartlets with crème fraiche and berries on page 255.

so go ahead and bake away and post/email me no later than july 13. i will have my tartlets posted with your link on monday, july 14.
