A desert cake I made for Silja’s cocktail and cake birthday party in Copenhagen earlier this month…will upload the recipe soon!
MS. piGGY before her later transformation to tit pig…my roommate Michael and pal tHOMAAASSSS had fun with poor piggy. She didn’t seem to mind so much though, I think she was just happy that she didn’t have to display some type of ham biting…Yup! we make her do that…I know…
the lovely parmesan and fig appetizers are really simple and rather TASTY! and by some kind of genius coincidence…THEY TASTE LIKE THEY ARE MADE OF HAM!!!!!-which is weirdly exciting to me…to piggy not so much!
Fig and Parmesan Crackers
iNGRIDIENTS: all depends on how many you want to make
Shaved Parmesan Cheese
3-4 Ripened Figs
2-3 tablespoons Quality Blackberry Preserves
Wash and cut figs into thin slices (cross-sectionally)
Place a few shavings on a cracker…why does that sound funny?
Place a thin fig slice on top of the Parmesan shavings
use the back of a teaspoon to make a small dent in the middle of the fig then place a tiny baby dollop of blackberry preserves in the dent
So simple and the flavor is pretty great! had no idea what to expect when I made them! I just needed a relatively cheap appetizer to fill us before the meal and this was perfect!…Imagination rules!
