New Wonky Baking Dishes:
The first of my new Bakers has been fired (soda fired). Just as I had hoped — They make a fun center-piece on the table. I’m sharing one of the smaller ones — With tangerines and grapes. So far, I’m quite happy with how they’re turning out! I’ve got more in the kiln — We’ll be unloading tomorrow!
And, of course, they’re really fun for BAKING. I’ve definitely been ‘testing’ them out — Baking whatever I can think of throwing together; all kinds of mixed-up, tasty concoctions….
Above — I tried a totally new Springtime Veggie Lasagne!
The Food — Springtime Lasagne with Shiitake Mushroom & Sweet Peas
I recently discovered a Lasagne Recipe using a mixture of Sweet Peas and Ricotta cheese (pureed together). I was intrigued, and also inspired to add a few other ingredients. I decided to include Shiitake Mushroom and Leek. All topped with Mozzarella.
WOW — It worked! It was all amazing, Springtime delicious! Husband and I loved every cheesy bite! It was soooooo delish, I actually made it AGAIN. And garnished with asparagus bites. Recipe included on my Recipes Page.
The Pottery — Maasha Pots
Yes, I’ve been trying out my new wonky bakers!! Wonky but functional! Stoneware, thrown and (very) altered, soda fired. I can’t wait to make more of these. Like those below — They are so much fun to make!! And they are so intended for yummy food!
Happy Springtime (finally) everyone!
