Orejas or Palmiers

Hello all. This is my first time posting in this community. I made orejas or palmiers (orejas if you are Mexican, palmiers if you are French). Same thing, but I was unaware the French made these as well. Heh. I grew up in Los Angeles eating these things with my family. We normally bought them from a local panaderia. Sadly, where I am now there are no panaderias that I have found, so I said, "Hey! I can bake things! I can damn sure bake some orejas and pan dulce!" So I did. Totally delicious.

Fancy dinner inspired by the American South

This spring a dear friend graduated from her master's program, and this weekend she took me up on my gift of a dinner for her.

This is my favorite time of the year for produce, so I had lots of good things to use for inspiration at the farmers markets. Every single ingredient used was organic, and almost all of it was grown in Washington State. And, well, not the beer.
