I had a friend forward this recipe to me a couple years ago, and simply forgot I had it all this time. I needed a dessert that would travel well for over an hour in a warm car, so I didn't think my four layer frosted cake option was really the best choice. Fortunately, I found this recipe in my archives and I opted for this simple bundt cake.

I wanted to share a recipe from my Dad's heritage with my daughter and her boyfriend, realizing as she approaches her 30th birthday that I've never made this for her! So, it was pork, dumplings and cooked cabbage. A true Czech Sunday dinner for us growing up.

Generally, when I have a bride that requests a custom veil, I'll order extra of the trims to make another one or two for my shop. It won't be exactly like hers, since hers was a "one-of-a-kind", but it will be similar.
In this case, my bride wanted a waltz length veil. I found her this gorgeous venice lace trim for the perimeter to finish off hers then decided to make a fingertip length veil with the same lace for my shop.

I stumbled on this recipe awhile back and was waiting for the right oppportunity to make it. Last night was that opportunity.
This recipe comes from America's Test Kitchen, so it calls for a homemade crust, which I did. I will tell you, next time I think I'll go with a sheet of puff pastry (like some of the other recipes I found that are very similar). It's such a timesaver! As far as flavor though....so good!!!
1 lb. leeks, white and light green parts only, halved lengthwise, sliced thin & rinsed

I've watched the America's Test Kitchen episode featuring this recipe twice, and I finally decided I needed to try it. Personally, I find a lot of their recipes to be very complex, filled with lots of prep and steps before you finally get to the reward of eating the finished product. It's probably why I've waited so long to try this one. It comes complete with a crust recipe, but I'll be honest, I chose the shortcut of buying the pre-made package which includes two crusts. It tasted wonderful, and it saved a whole lot of time and effort.
