Stay warm out there, folks.  

Tonight, a few recipes:

First, a flourless cake from an older What's For Dinner: Clementines

I first made this recipe for a local Bakers Dozen meeting in Ann Arbor. Once a month several people would make the same recipe and then bring it to Kitchen Port, a wonderful store, which sadly closed a few years ago. It carried anything your imagination could conjure for your kitchen. We met in the demo area and examined the fruits of everyone's labors. And then we tasted. We discussed the differences and tried to figure why. Our discussions about the Clementine Cake centered around the almonds.

I choose to grind slivered almonds in a food processor. The cake's texture was dense and moist. Most of the other participants purchased almond flour. Their cakes were lighter and rose a little more. Both methods tasted equally delicious.  

It is apparently National Cream Puff Day.  I don't know why, but here is a recipe from King Arthur Flour Company.  
Cream Puffs

I think the steps will be important.  

Silly photo:

Jon and Stephen will return to us in 5 days.  

I wish I knew where they would start.  ;-)  So much material, so little time.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
