This week has been crazy busy, with all kinds of positive goodness, so I’m not complaining. But, Lord knows I need it because my pooch has been sick for the past two weeks with slipped discs in her back. And, that my friends, has me all frazzled out.
Notwithstanding the every day challenges life brings, there are fabulous developments that make me smile.
Among them, Dean & DeLuca asked me to be their guest blogger today! Being the nation’s prototypical, yet sexiest gourmet delicatessen, there wasn’t a chance I’d pass on it, no matter how unmotivated I was to make a 6th flan in 2 days. There’s not one here in Atlanta, so any chance to even be in their grace, is good enough for me for the time being (though I’m trying to convince someone over there that we desperately need one–but that’s another story).
Being named a “flan queen” by some TV and culinary types, they thought it’d be appropriate for me to talk about this “traditional” Mexican dessert in honor of Cinco de Mayo.
As tired as I was yesterday, you better believe I got my mind right, found energy and managed to find a special tequila. I made my flan, got back to working on another deadline, went on a 2 mile walk/run at midnight, came home, started writing the post and got up way early this morning to snap some pictures of the flan. So, enjoy this awesome, last minute flan I made in celebration of Cinco de Mayo, as blogged about and featured today on their ‘Gourmet Food Blog.’
It’ll still be up on their site tomorrow, so do enjoy and share with your friends!
