IMG_6758_poviticaI have never have povitica before and was very excited to try it.  In my mind, I was envisioning something like a bread version of baklava.  Although the final result looked nothing like the some of the beautiful pictures of povitica I saw on the web, it quickly became a family favorite.  Thank you, Jenni, for a great challenge! 

 The Daring Baker’s October 2011 challenge was Povitica, hosted by Jenni of The Gingered Whisk. Povitica is a traditional Eastern European Dessert Bread that is as lovely to look at as it is to eat!

Return to the Daring Kitchen - Moo Shu

It has been a really long time since I participated in a Daring Cooks and Bakers challenges.  One thing I could not pass was Moo Shu.  How can you not love the moo shu?  I was very apprehensive about making it, as the dish I typically would get in a Chinese restaurant looked like a lot of work.  It was adventure from the beginning to the end – things did not worked out as planned (the pancakes stuck together, scrambled tofu was ended up completely breaking down while cooking and nothing really tasted as expected).  Despite the challenges, it was a fun experience, though, and I might try making moo shu some time in the future again.
