Yes, I still owe you photos and details from the last of my just-finished semester at Arkansas Culinary School. But meanwhile, I thought I’d share a little lovely from my kitchen:
My daughter was recently lamenting that, because of my heavy load at school, we hadn’t cooked together much lately. I agreed. She suggested Rice Crispy Treats as my absolution. The day after my last final, this was our creation.
As I’ve previously shared, she likes to add crazy ingredients to things as much as I do. We started with the obvious…M&Ms. Red sprinkles. Even a little white chocolate over one side, because she didn’t think she’d like it.
Then we decided to go a little crazy: mint extract. Just 1/8 teaspoon or so (I don’t really measure) was perfect.
I’m starting to plan my attack for teacher gifts, and I’m thinking this year’s will include some Rice Crispy Treats. But don’t be alarmed if I go really crazy.
I’m thinking white truffle oil, browned butter and pine nuts.
Hold me back!
