Chocolate and churros

Special thanks to my friend Jimmy Shaw, whose Loteria Grill sometimes serves churros with an extraordinarily good chocolate dipping sauce, for inspiring me today.

A big nod to Maureen Abood whose directions I followed for the chocolate. Get her recipe here. As for the churros, what I made was really not… I made a quick tart dough (with and egg yolk), cut it into strips, brushed with the egg white, sprinkled it with cinnamon and sugar before baking. So we’ll call them “churrettes”.

I do know that I have neglected this blog the last few weeks. My big brother called me the other day to make sure I was alright; I better get back to it. It’s not that I haven’t been cooking! I have, and I’ve taken lots of photos. I will do a blog soon and catch up. A lot of it has been simple but good, and I came up with some neat stuff. Stay tuned!
