Tuesdays with Dorie.

This week's Tuesdays with Dorie challenge was Brioche Raisin Snails chosen by the amazing Peabody. I, unfortunately, had to sit out.

I could list all my excuses. I could go into detail about Landon's pinkeye and the wonderful mood he's been in the past few days. Or I could tell you how Spencer took most of last week off and we spent that time doing family things. Or I could just tell you that I've been super bored with kitchen related projects lately.

But I'd just be making excuses.

My real reason is that I hate raisins. And last week's challenge had already pushed my limits when it comes to the little feet-smelling things. Sure I could've used one of the 5 bags of dried cranberries I have sitting in my pantry but even those are a little too raisin-like for me.

I'll be back next week though. I promise.

I'm sorry you missed out! I wanted to tell you, though, that if there is something you truly do not like in a recipe, by all means leave it out! We're not real sticklers for any hard and fast rules around here ;-)

Give it a try with chocolate chips!

Natalie said...

Doh! See ya next week, though :)

Must try recipe with blueberries...that's all I'm saying! Totally worth it!

I don't dislike raisins but I wanted something different and used dried cranberries. But I see what you mean about them being too raisin like. Oh well! See you next week!
