Spring fever anyone?
Does anyone else have spring fever? Or maybe it's cabin fever.
I have a collection of science experiments requiring my attention every morning. Sprouts, microgreens, almonds soaking for milk, rice flour batter for noodles...
I made Tortas de Aceite this weekend. Not quite the same as the lovely wax paper wrapped ones but delicious. Well received. Sesame seed as well as anise made a nice topping.
I had been waiting on that and several other recipes for lack of orange flower water. I got a north african cookbook for Christmas. Lots of scented recipes. I finally ordered some on Amazon. I quickly received a lovely scented dripping soggy package. January cold + glass bottles of scented water = a fragrant wet mess. The upshot was other restless souls quickly planned a venture into Lewiston's Somali stores in a search for orange flower water this Friday. It will probably rain.
