The Day After

What's behind door #Friday?

Photobucket

Just what are Lisa's main interests? You got it: Baseball & Food; redolent, delectable and exciting masterpieces on and off the field! I met Lisa just over one year ago when I joined the Daring Baker's. She was the first person to welcome me to the group and the first to comment on my inaugural challenge. I've come to learn that my first impression of Lisa was spot on, she is genuine, thoughtful, and of course incredibly talented.

Lisa's tagline is: "A whole lotta food with a side of baseball'. Ultimately Lisa plans to open an adorable bistro/patisserie, but has been sidetracked by an unfortunate injury to her knee. Though the injury has put a halt to her Grand Opening - surgery, the use of a cane, and immobility didn't stop her from baking. She simply improvised using a fondue pot as a stovetop off the couch. Now that is dedication!


Are these not the most gorgeous macarons, you've ever seen, and pumpkin macarons at that? Yes please! Move over Tartelette!

Admire this tuile inspired lemon meringue pie! It is mouth watering with layers of lemon curd, meringue, and tuile cookies fashioned after a napoleon!

Lisa is donating her personal favorite dark chocolate peanut butter chip cookies and chocolate chunk brown butter cookies and a surprise treat revealed to the winner only upon arrival of the prize package! Are you expecting the recipe too? Of course she is donating that: Levain Bakery Copycat Cookies.

At this point, you are wishing her bistro/patisserie was a reality - I know! So... to enter this giveaway head over to Parsley, Sage, Dessert and Line Drives and send Lisa some well wishes so she can get up, get better, and get moving! We need a Lisa Michele patisserie! Then come back and comment here, letting me know what you would purchase at her patisserie!

oh my goodness, I love her puff pastry recipes: creme brulee, peanut butter mousse, eggs, benedict, etc. That gal's got talent!

jengd said...

PLEASE don't make me pick! The macaroons were ALL amazing looking. I just printed the Pho recipe (ok, not a patisserie item but that's beside the point!) The Coconut Cream Bowls with Bruleed Bananas and Coconut Tuiles makes me want her to open her shop NOW (next door so I can run over and get one of these... or two... on a whim!) As for the “I MUST have Chocolate and Peanut Butter!” Tart, it's just not to be believed!

Frieda said...

I'm a follower...I wish I could reach out and take a cookie...

Rosa Robichaud said...

Went and wished her well... and I would LOVE to have some of her macaroons.

*scratching her head*

Although, I truly don't understand why you need "feet" on macaroons.

Oh yah!

Can you put my name in your hat, please?

*grin*

And thanks!

Lisa said...
