3 Things

  1. My birthday is on Monday and I think I am going to make myself frozen peaches and cream cake, and maybe also this lemon tart. (Related: berry tart)

2. Have you seen this time lapse video of a cloud inversion inside the Grand Canyon? This is pretty cool to see, especially since I was recently there!

3. We have guests coming next week and are excited to share Chicago with them. Last week, I discovered Green Street Smoked Meats with my new climbing friends and it is the best place for omnivores to enjoy barbecue and beer! When I was ordering a delicious pulled pork, I overheard a cook explaining that the brisket smokes for 16 hours every day! There is a great outdoor space, and the entire inside is warmly lit and smells of hickory and cedar smoke! There is also a coffee shop adjacent/inside the bar and a top secret ramen bar in the basement… it has a 3 hour wait because it only seats about 15 people!

  1. I did make the tart, but the first time I made it I was a little sloppy so I didn’t take photos. I haven’t made the cake yet (I need a springform pan!) but I think I will make it soon… it sounds so good, especially now that it’s warm outside!

  2. Did you make the cake or the tart, and if you did, how were they and do you have the recipes and pictures? : )
    I am very short of desserts in my blog and yours sound delightful.
