Yes, Please.

Do you read Smitten Kitchen? Because, really, Internet, you should.

SK is this delightful cooking and recipe blog (see "The Good Stuff" link section) that taught me how to make The World's Greatest Pie Crust (No joke. Even Darwin's mom was breaking off little bits of it from the pan post-Thanksgiving festivities. It is delicious.).

Also, she takes truly stunning photographs of food- exquisite, really. Which is why I nearly died yesterday when she posted a recipe for Chouquettes. You can't even hear the word without thinking that it will be a lovely little fluff of delight, now, can you?

Judging by the photos (which, honestly, don't click the link if you don't want to drool all over yourself), they might be the most airy, perfect, little pieces of pastry goodness ever to grace a piece of parchment paper.

Anyway, I think I've found my next Self-Indulgence Wednesdays treat- because, wow. Yum. The recipe is right here, and if anyone out there wants to make me their best friend ever....well. I'm just saying. I like the chocolate ones.

Reading that blog really makes me wish I could cook well. Maybe my roommate can make something for me...

MMMMM I lurve Smitten Kitchen. One of the best cooking blogs out there.

To an admiring Bog!
