Just had to say that I made the wonderful Nigella Lawson recipe for kuchen again, but this time I used blueberries instead of blackberries. Although I think the blackberries look prettier, the blueberries tasted better. They seemed to "bloom" better, with more juice and flavor. Plus, there's lemon zest in this recipe, and I think it pairs well with blueberries. I made the kuchen for Nancy and she was thrilled. One reason I enjoy this recipe so much is that it's incredibly easy to make and people are so impressed with your work. It looks like you've slaved away making it. Not true!
I have company coming in a few hours for dinner, so I must attend to that. I made the Barefoot Contessa's favorite chocolate layer cake and judging by the cake batter and frosting, it will taste darn good!
Happy Chinese New Year! Gung Hay Fat Choy!
