Irish Soda Bread for Tuesdays with Dorie

 Tuesdays with Dorie, baking with Julia has brought us Irish Soda Bread for today's baking event. 

The recipe was super speedy to put together, with all of 4 ingredients requested.  The kneading was next to nothing at all with only 1 minute required.

I did add a few herbs and sundried tomatoes to make my soda bread a savory rustic recipe.

I added 1 cup of chopped, sundried tomatoes, fresh chopped parsley, dried oregano, thyme, coarse black pepper, and a smidgeon of sage.

The bread is delicious with a tight crumb, great for dipping in soup or adding a spread.

Dorie and Julia Child hit a home run with this recipe!

TWD Baking with Julia Child and Dorie Greenspan - Chocolate Truffle Tartlets

Chocolate Truffle Tartlets - What a great way to start baking with TWD!  I know this is my first blog with the group for the Julia Child/Dorie Greenspan Cookbook but I am Super short on time so this is going a Fast Blog. 

Love the chocolate pastry crust flavor!  I kept nibbling as I went =0).

I baked four 6" tartlets and four 4" tartlets.

I used Callebaut white and milk chocolate along with lady finger pieces since I did not have Amaretti cookies or chocolate biscotti on hand.

Delicious!  Tastes a little bit like a brownie.  I love the examples of tartlets shown for Steph of a Whisk and a Spoon and Spike of Spike Bakes.   Happy Baking Everyone!!!!
