Zarah Maria

Wow Julie, that looks delish!

rowena

Brava, brava, brava! It is always so...WEIRD whenever I hop on over here and you've posted something on what I've been recently thinking about. This time it's rhubarb, a thing that I just cannot find here or have ever found for that matter. Ricotta and almond paste also get an enthusiastic thumbs up!

I'm glad (envious) that you are getting involved in these cooking events! I think those days for me are dwindling fast...hehe, with the dog to arrive soon. I'm trying to get through all of the food post ideas before she comes home with us and the stuff that I'm concerned with now are more along the lines of.... Hmmm honey, you think that upscale eatery that we were planning to go to will accept dogs in their restaurant? {rolls eyeballs here} Have a good one!!

Julie

Hey Zarah -- you have to try those madeleines, baker girl!

And so do you, Rowena -- if you like almond paste, you're going to adore these madeleines. Do you have a good recipe for ricotta gelato? I sort of made this one up based on a bunch of other recipes, but I'd love to see an authentic one. Believe me, even here it's hard to get rhubarb, because of the competition! I got the very last stalk at the store the other day. I'm so excited for you about the new puppy -- she's gorgeous! And you're right -- it's crazy for me to try to do these events, considering the insane demands of my work/family life. But it's pretty satisfying too, I have to admit.

Owen

Julie - I can't believe you made all that! I am seriously impressed. The full list is up now at www.tomatilla.com

Nope, unfortunately, no recipe for a ricotta gelato as I'm still looking to get a gelato maker before the summer. it's a toss-up between Gaggia and Simac [didn't realize how price-y they are]. Still, given the amount of gelato that I could wallow in [hehe], no doubt the machine will pay off after one summer! I must place the blame on Keiko of Nordljus. SHE started me on wanting to make my own, and whenever I go to her site, I brace myself for the calorie intake that her posts bring about. I wonder if there's an AA type of shelter for those addicted to foodie pics? :-P

Biscuit Girl

Congrats on winning the Paper Chef contest!

Barbara

Congratulations. I'm going to try those madelaines.

Julie

Thanks so much, Owen, Biscuit Girl and Barbara.

Jenny Marie, I'd be happy to support the CANS festival by linking to it or even writing about it on the blog, but the comment section of my blog is not an appropriate place for you to notify others of an event. That is why I'm deleting your comment. In future, please email me if you want my help in publicizing a good cause like this one.

Moira

Hi Miss Julie!

Gosh, this is an absolutely fantastic dessert...congrats x a million on your much-deserved win! I am going to make those madeleines the first chance I get- they sound amazing! Of course, I need to make your mother's chicken and meatballs first, that's my #1 priority...

I stumbled upon a recipe for ricotta icecream at Traveler's Lunchbox and guess who popped into my mind? Haha...here's the address if you're interested!

Julie

Thanks rowena -- you're the best!

Moi! MOI! You're back! Yay! How are you, how was the trip, yadda yadda yadda...now get crackin', girl. Back to work. If I go to your site and see that twinkie tort one more time...

And to all who want to make these madeleines -- do it! They couldn't be easier, and everyone loves them, even people who profess to hate almond paste. Case in point: G inhales them and gobbles them down. Good thing the recipe makes so much.

Felicia

Congratulations on winning the Paper Chief contest!! I got to taste the Madeleines, which as Julie described, are "butter-rich, moist with almond paste and perfumed with orange-flower water." The discerning palate can taste each flavor and sensation. Not to say that my palate is that discerning but I definitely made the connection to marzipan - not my favorite but these cookies far surpass an ordinary marzipan dessert.

There is so much pressure to comment on the special treats that Julie brings to her colleagues at work. You have to make sure your prose is up to the level of the blogger's and all her compatriots or else feel too embarrassed to comment. So, I just spent 10 minutes composing this response instead of doing my letter. What one won't do for the sinful pleasure of indulging in rich, exotic (for the meat and potato eater) foods!

Joe C

Yes, congratulations. I have cmoe to claim my fair share of the prize as the provider of her Cuisinart ice-cream machine. I've realized that my role in life is to provide technical enhancements to my sister's cooking and blogging genius. Now as to that gelato, where's mine?

Ernie

Julie,

Your dessert sounds wonderful, it's no surprise that you won. I'm glad the madeleines worked out, I love them. Of course anything with almond paste is good in my book.

Julie

Felicia, I'm so glad you wrote in -- it's nice to have someone who actually tasted the goods writing about them!

Joe C, as my brother you will always reap the benefits of being the sweet supportive sib that you are! As a matter of fact, I'm thinking about making a little housewarming dinner for you -- what would you like?

Thanks Ernie -- love those madeleines! G inhales them, even though he says they're "kinda girly"...

Felicia finally has company. I always feel privileged to sample Julie's fab home cooking & it's about danged time I posted my praise.

I love madeleines but am skeptical about almond-flavored anything, since although I like the nuts, marzipan is always way, way too intense for me. These, however, had just the right soupcon of almond aroma & I can only swoon at the thought of them with that luscious-sounding gelato & rhubarb & berry compote. Too yummy.

I love gelato, I havent found a shop in my small town in S.C that makes it so I have to make it myself when I get a craving. I appreciate all of the recipes I can get my hands on.

The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you’ve ever had.
