Baguette and Mushroom Crostini

This is ground breaking.

I think i might have cooked (as opposed to baking) today.

And i think i might have liked it!

In fact, i liked it so much that i am gonna focus on the cooking today, and downplay the fact that the cooking lies over homemade, freshly baked baguettes.

Homemade baguettes. That’s pretty groundbreaking too.

I am always baking Asian breads, so this is a bit out of my area. Literally.

But let’s keep that to another day.

So what was cooking anyways?

Sauteed creamy mushroom, flavoured with cheese and garlic

Sure, it’s nothing impressive. But it’s a mile stone for me (I can barely cook an egg!)

They call this arrangement a “crostini”.

And just as i like these crostinis, i think i am liking cooking too!

    See, you’re a budding savory chef and you didn’t even know it! These look so good!

    I seldom see you make savoury dishes but when you do it certainly rocks!

    I love mushrooms and that creamy sauce looks amazing. Homemade baguette is definitely impressive! I hope we get to hear more about that soon. 🙂

    Yay for cooking! It’s fun to branch out, as I’m beginning to learn. I just made my first Pate Brisee for your quiche, and I’m hoping it turns out as tasty as yours! I’ll link to your recipe when I post about it. 🙂

    I don’t know which one I’m more impressed with; your cooking skills, or the lovely homemade baguette! Either way, you deserve a ‘woohoo!’ 😛
