A Welcome Visitor
Well, of course, that means that, as soon as I stop coughing, I have to make her version. Especially since it's double the lemon and usually I think that Double Lemon is a Good Thing.
I will be sure to refer back to Leila's site (the work and family weirdness has cut down on my reading time) for future Feeding the Multitudes tasks. I loved the story about gathering grape leaves at Lake Merritt.
Leila, if you're out there, the foccacia works fine with all purpose flour, and it's really not a lot of active prep time. I am now officially shocked at how much it costs in the stores, but getting a small piece when you get a hankering is still not a bad plan. Re the brownies, it's not quite the same as La Hepburn's recipe, but it's pretty close; it's got more flour but specifies cake flour - so it actually may be similar weights - and more vanilla.
More lemon? I find I use different amounts every time I make it. I start with one and then keep adding until it tastes right. Lemons vary!
I was only kidding when I waggled my finger. NOw you're going to subject my recipe to real life testing? ARGHHHH
Re: focaccia - I'm not going to make it because I'd eat it ALL, and I really want to drop some weight right now, for health reasons.
So sorry about the loss of Maya...
