Ahem. So, this might’ve made me do a tippy tappy happy dance: FIRST GLIMPSES INSIDE POTTERMORE Have you seen it??? They’ve definitely got some cool stuff going on there. I’m intrigued to try it out.
Annnnnd this might’ve made me do an even AWESOMER tippy tappy happy dance:
I know, right? I grabbed the recipe from Bon Appétit (clickety-click on over for it), and it’s now the husband’s “officially most favorite food ever.” While the original recipe doesn’t call for meringue topping, I thought it would be an excellent balance for the the peanut butter pie’s salty richness; plus, it was a great way to use up the leftover egg whites. I’m glad we added it because, well, it totally rocked. In the future, the only other thing I’d change is to eliminate the addition of salt in both the crust and filling. The pie tasted fine with the extra salt, but since I use regular butter (vs unsalted like they call for) I could’ve left it out. Needless to say, Bon Appétit, I love thee. *sigh*
Did I mention it’s AMAZING? Um, yeah. It is.
So. How’s YOUR week going?
What fabulous thing are you eating (or reading)?

Um…am I the only booknerd who did NOT know this Book Barge exists?
Are you kidding me?! A bookstore floating up the Thames River???
According to their website, they’re a “Floating independent bookshop selling new and secondhand classic, contemporary and children’s fiction.” Part of their mission statement is “to promote a less hurried and harried lifestyle of idle pleasures, cups of tea, conversation, culture and, of course, curling up with an incomparably good Book Barge purchase…”
Oh man. I’m in love. Thank you, Laura Strachan, for tweeting about this bookish beauty. And lest anyone need more convincing as to the gloriousness of this piece of perfection, check out more of their photos on their website.
Okay, enough drooling over that for the moment. Onto the promised recipe for the month. Except, this time, it’s not my recipe. It’s Bon Appétit’s Molten Chocolate Cakes with Mint Fudge Sauce (or raspberry fudge sauce if you’re like me and can’t leave well enough alone). Go at it. The link is below in green. I made them this past weekend for my daughter’s birthday at her very specific request. Mm…
