Well, Molly the Baker is off to her externship from the Culinary Institute of America.  She will be working making pastries for the next twenty weeks in Colonial Williamsburg.   I am so happy for her!  She just finished a breads class and sent me a few amazing pictures (no recipes, of course).  I love the looks of the Religieuses, so I searched up a recipe.  This one is only for the serious baker!  I found a great step by step guide at  Here is the link:

Their website has loads of over the top french pastries recipes!

One of my other favorite pictures that she sent was of a sandwich buffet that has me inspired.  What a great idea for a large gathering!

The other bread pictures are for viewing enjoyment only, as I am not much of a baker and will likely never try these myself.
