Homemade Thin Mints

This is my favorite type of Girl Scout cookie. Michelle found a way to make them in your own home (See Crepes of Wrath). This was not hard--just time-consuming. It's awesome making with two fun friends like Michelle and Grace! These cookies were delicious and went away pretty fast.

By the way, here is what the original Thin Mints look like:


Some are uglier than others. :P

The Crumpet Shop (Revisited) - Seattle

Organic lemon curd & ricotta cheese on a crumpet. Delicious. Sweet and tangy.

On the last morning of our trip to Seattle, Rebecca, Kavita, and I had crumpets at The Crumpet Shop (I wrote about this place as part of a food tour in 2010). They were all very good, although I'm just not a big fan of salmon unless it's raw or it's salmon teriyaki. Smoked salmon is okay.... Sadly, I had to get my crumpet and run to the airport, which is why the picture above has buildings in the background. This place is right across from Pike Place Market, by the way.
(1) Corrie's lemon curd with ricotta, (2) Rebecca's green eggs & ham, & (3) Kavita's smoked salmon blended with cream cheese & topped with cucumbers

I guess this white thing on the right is a crumpet. haha
