Do you ever go on a Pinterest pinning spree of food? I know I do. I think it’s almost like going grocery shopping when you’re hungry. You start to buy more than what’s on your list. When I see beautiful photos of food, my eyes are drawn and before you know it, I’ve pinned it. Have I made most of the things on my Pinterest Food board? Of course not. But they’re there just in case I’m inspired to try something new.
Like the other day.
It was a Sunday afternoon and apple and brie crescent rolls were calling my name. Other than my obsession with homemade bread, I have no idea why I had to make these on this particular day, but I did. While the rolls were rising and the oven was pre-heating, the power went out. Seriously? Didn’t Eskom know I was in the middle of something that would make my taste buds scream with delight? Well, obviously not. I forgave them and waited. It was worth it.
I’ve always been inclined to bake from scratch, but living in Africa has taught me to do it even more. If you’re a pop the can and roll the crescent roll kind of gal, I’m telling you, you’re missing out. These treats are to die for. They’re awesome by themselves, but stick a slice of a granny smith apple and a sliver of brie and you will be oohing and aahing. Don’t take my word for it. Try them yourselves and be sure to use Lemon Sugar’s recipe. Ooh. Aah.
