Happy Labor Day Weekend!
Is everyone ready for the last blast of summer? I know I am. This past week's cooler temps have me ready for Fall ... and I'm eagerly awaiting the close of Brillo Head Season. It won't be long now!
We'll be heading off to Momma and Papa Diva's today and I look forward to reaping the late harvest bounty of bro's garden. I'm told the tomatoes are plentiful and delicious. Sweet! Weather permitting, we'll be grillin' and chillin' with la famila grande and I'm excited about it.
In addition to the internet woes, I've been separated from my stove again this week and will need to remedy that next week. New recipes coming soon! I should mention that I decided to bake Ellie Krieger's triple chocolate cookies on Wednesday and they were *spectacular*. I won't repost the recipe here, because I didn't alter it at all. If you have the book and have not tried these cookies - do so. They were certainly a hit at the party last night - my nephew gave them a big "thumbs up." This bodes well for "The Food You Crave" and I'm looking forward to further exploration of the book.
Along with the new recipes, I'll have some news to share with you next week. Stay tuned! And, in the meantime, tell me how you're planning to spend the holiday weekend? If you're doing the BBQ thing - what will you be cooking and what's your favorite late-summer dish? Hungry Divas want to know!
Have a wonderful holiday weekend, dear readers, and make it Divalicious!
