Mixed Bag Mondays: Near Misses

I remember learning about near misses in science class and I always find it such a strange phrase. It makes sense, but it is also confusing. Maybe it’s just me. I believe I first learned it around middle school which is when I had lots of random confusing information. Such as, the word “inclement.” We learned it in a vocabulary unit but our book had the wrong pronunciation and as a result, I find it hard to remember which way is correct because both ways sound wrong now, oops.

Garlic-Rosemary Dutch Baby

Dutch Baby with a Strawberry Topping

I made a Dutch baby before, and recently I decided to try a different recipe because I wasn’t sure if I still liked my old one. This isn’t that different, but seemed to make a much fluffier, custardy, and yummier oven pancake. I especially liked it with some simmered strawberries.

Simmered strawberries are great, especially if your strawberries have sat in the fridge a little too long. Sometimes they are a little too soft to enjoy fresh, but they are perfect for a topping like this. They are usually extra sweet and juicy, which is ideal for simmering. I didn’t take too many pictures since the process for making these is almost identical to the other recipe I posted, but I highly recommend them.
