Flaky

Yesterday the first iris of the season opened up in my garden while light flaky drops of snow fell for a few minutes here in town. The mountain we sit beside was shrouded completely by clouds. When the clouds burned away, the mountains were white, as white as my iris.

  1. “This batter is very flaky”, I thought to myself as I mixed up the batter…….I was going to try and make an Easter cake for my family, my kids and my husband and I wanted to try and make it from “scratch” as they say. Truly, this was the first time I had attempted this and I was also going to decorate it in a most unusual way, using pastel M&Ms on the top and colorful (purple?) Peeps (rabbits) surrounding the body of my cake…….I wanted pastel colors for our Easter celebration.

    We have a beautiful pink Japanese Cherry tree that is full of wonderful pink blossom every March. At the end of a dreary cold winter this tree bursts into a beautiful display of bright pink blossom, signalling the start of Spring. Sadly this wonderful sight is ephemeral and showers of pink flakes are everywhere when the wind blows. The ground beneath our tree is a covered with flakes of pink everywhere.

    The cooking class for today dealt with desserts. Her baklava turned out flaky, just how she like it, and, oh, so delicious. It felt as if she had finally perfected her grandmother’s recipe, and the master chef’s expression, as he tasted the delectable morsel, cemented her assurance. His compliments were over the top, and she knew that he was fishing for the recipe, which she definitely was not willing to share with him or anyone else. Baking would be her specialty, and this recipe was going to be the springboard to her success.

    ‘Sone papdi’, or flakes of gold,were the most desired sweetmeat . Lovely pyramids of delectable squares adorned the various thalis (plates). She peered through the glass partition, marvelling at the sheer varieties on display,unable to come to a decision. Her breath kept fogging the glass, and the cashier drummed on the countertop with his fingers, bursting with unspoken impatience……..

  7. Bobby Flay is a well-known chef seen on the Food Network Channel. He not only shows his own cooking prowess, but he gives helpful ideas to novice cooks. One thing he usually says is “Don’t be afraid to try new recipes and ingredients”. I guess you can say that that’s the “FLAY KEY” to success!
