French Pastry Friday

Before I had children, I tried to master a few tricky (for me) recipes.  One of these recipes was Martha Stewart's gougeres.

So when a neighbor offered to take Oliver along with her daughters on a nature walk around town, I quickly whipped up these babies as a post-walk treat.

If my brain's muscle memory had not kicked in for this baking session, I wouldn't have attempted these.   They're two steps too many for a busy hausfrau like me.  It's been a better day today though...feeling nearly sophisticated (!) knowing that I made these warm and cheesy lovelies from scratch.

What's the saying?  Fake it till you feel it?!  Maybe feeling fancy more regularly is around the corner?  One can only hope!
