Posts of the Week
Too Many Chefs post of the week

A little good news is needed this week, so we picked three posts to share with you.

1. We start with Esurientes Orange, Cardamom, and Brandy Biscuits. That's biscuits in the English sense - as in cookies - and not in the American sense - as in stuff you slather butter on. Although now that you mention it...

A. Did you know those silly Brits call zucchini courgettes? Even the Estonians in Scotland fall prey to this problem as Nami-Nami does in this post about a courgette, tomato, and roquefort tart. I really like the simple recipe and the attractive way she assembled the simple ingredients on puff pastry. For those of you who like to skip right to the recipe it's here. If you speak Estonian, that is.

I. Are pancakes really worthy of a Post of the Week? OK, I'll admit, this pick is all about the picture, but Baking Sheet got me with the Towers of Hanoi picture of pancakes. Now move the stack from one plate to another one at a time with only three plates to work with without stacking bigger on smaller.

While you puzzle that out, we'll be cooking and eating and telling you all about it until next week's Posts of the Week.

Thanks, Barrett! And I actually love those puzzles. Maybe I should use pancakes. It would be a great way to keep kids occupied....

Hi Barret - thanks for mentioning my site! You're cheeky for mentioning the Estonian link:) There's really no recipe for the courgette/zucchini tart, but I try to provide Estonian links for my few Estonian readers (esp my sister, who practices her English by reading my blog, but would never attempt cooking anything according to English instructions) at the end of the post - usually _in addition_ to the recipe in English:)

Pille - I liked the Estonian language link. I grew up in a community with a decent number of Lithuanians, so I have a soft spot for the Baltic states.

Those kids were always killer at soccer...

I know the Lithuanias are really good at basketball and very good in football, but soccer as well?
You see, I learn something new every day:))))
