Rhubarb Eton Mess and Salmon with Herbs

I have been super busy lately and haven’t shared any of the images from my recipe challenge here, let alone anything else. So, it is time to catch up. First up, is the week one recipe I made. My sister and I had chosen rhubarb, so I made a Rhubarb Eton Mess (a traditional English dessert). Be sure to check out the full post here. Kari (the sister) made a rustic rhubarb tart that you can check out here.

For week two we had decided on fresh herbs. I made a simple rosemary salmon on the grill, and it was delicious. My sister made an oregano pesto for her recipe.

343/366 – Tiramisu

The past week has been a whirlwind. Last week I somewhat spontaneously decided to make a trip to South Dakota to visit my brother and his family before coming back to Manhattan. Between getting ready for that, saying goodbyes, and my adventure there I haven’t had a chance to post. However, I am back in Manhattan now so it is time to get caught up. There are some exciting pictures to come!

*Friday, January 4

Friday was a busy day of last-minute get togethers and goodbyes. I met up with one of my best friends for “lunch” at a local cafe where I indulged in some delicious tiramisu.
