Jan, from Family Bites is having a baby and we are celebrating food blogger style!
It is events like this that makes me love being a part of a Foodie community. A group of talented writers, photographers and cooks coming together in such a way that all can celebrate a joyous moment in one of our fellow colleagues life. There is no worries about not being available to attend or weather patterns that threaten to ruin the occasion. And yet the surprise is even greater, in our virtual world as the day opens up and more and more congratulations are delivered to our friend.
You may remember me talking about the fabulous Jan during a post I wrote for the release of her new cookbook Gatherings in which she is a co-writer. It was her simple to follow recipe for Cheese puffs that have made me an overly confident choux pastry master. So of course the best treat I can bring to her virtual baby shower is my sweet variation, Cream Puffs with Caramel Whipped Cream and Chocolate Pretzel Top. While they take a little bit time creating all the different components they come together beautifully in time for any party. And while there ain’t no party like a food blogger party they will still be a sure fire hit.
There is a whole gaggle of us celebrating Jan’s wonderful new addition to her family. Make sure you check them all out.
