Guest-Posting at The Cilantropist: Brioche for Busy Schedules

Howdy from Boston! I'm on the other side of the country to beat up some smah-t kids at Hahv.... ok, I couldn't resist. No, I'm not here to kick anyone's butt, but rather to see good friends and family in Boston, then migrate down to Philly for more friends and family, then head to Big Summer Potluck, and then to New Jersey to see more dear friends. I am so very stoked to be here to see people that once lived mere blocks or miles away, but now live on the other side of the continent.

Meanwhile, this post is for another good friend, one who is working hard back home in San Diego on her doctoral dissertation.

Amanda of The Cilantropist and I met on a drive to LA, thanks to Todd and Diane of White on Rice Couple who hosted us for a photography workshop. Perhaps it's not the most prudent thing to invite someone you've never met to share a long and trafficky drive, but we hit it off and haven't stopped since.

If you have a moment, stop by Amanda's to say hello and cheer her on as she forges ahead towards finishing her Ph.D. Woohoo!

Greetings. This is my first time on your blog,
but you have a terrific one. I am always on the look out for new blogs, new
ideas. I especially appreciate all the details you d0.  Great  photos makes it seem like anyone can replicate
the recipe!

I am asking, would you please consider posting a
few of your favorite recipes on

It is a tool for bloggers to see and to be seen.
Your posts would fit in perfectly.

in addition, all photos, recipe titles as well as
your blog name would link directly back to your blog. Thus giving you new
attention and potentially new readers.

Or, if you just want to take a look at a lot of
fellow food bloggers all in one place. A great learning experience to get ideas
about how to establish your own blogging voice!

Please take a look. If you have any ideas or
questions, please do not hesitate to write

The good thing about the explosion of food blogging events is that if you miss some, there's always more to attend. You were definitely missed at BSP2! Hopefully we can go to BSP3 next year!

Marie said...

Thank you! It's a bit belated, but I'm glad you stopped by!

Marie said...

Yay! I'm so glad the recipe worked out for you. Whew!

Lori Lange said...

I'm so sad that I missed BSP2!  And I should have attended Todd and Diane's workshop too.  I'm missing out on everything!  Look forward to seeing you at the Star Olive Oil dinner tomorrow night!

Well, you're in my backyard, but I guess I can wait until Friday to see you :) Do you need a ride?
 Have a great time in Beantown. Be careful if you run into a seen-ya citizens pah-ty in Hahh vahd Yahd. (Those were the first words we heard when we moved here so many years ago!) p.s. nice photo!

I started this yesterday and finished it up today.  It was amazing and so easy!  I had never had broiche and didn't know what to expect. It was very light and so good!
