I’m in a mood for pistachios. Last night my friend came over and we whipped up these delicious pistachio-caramel eclairs (only after a minor mishap with doubling the water for the choux batter). A few days before I tested out this pistachio biscotti ball recipe with a hint of lemon zest and now, staring into my freezer, I realize I have enough mango curd leftover to fashion something delicate but delicious to fit into my pistachio-themed week.

Week 15 | 5.24.2010
Summer is truly rolling in (regardless of how the weather chooses to protest). Classes are finished, the garden is planted, and cherries have made their way to the market! All of these are reason enough to smile.

I baked up a pithivier to send to my sister last week so the finished product can be viewed ahead of time!
