Walking down the runway...Lemon Tassies
Okay. I'm writing this while watching Project Runway (read: there will be very little about the cookies in this post). It's toward the end of the season and tonight's episode determines the three finalist. And if this 1950's designer Kenley gets in, I'm going to lose it. Last episode, she was completely disrespectful to Tim Gunn. Yes, Tim Gunn. Master of big words and style! I wanted to leap through my little TV and strangle her.
This episode is all about nature. Great looking garden they are all in...very cool.
I'm going through a miniature phase right now...and tried these Martha Stewart Lemon Tassie cookies. I made 12 mini-muffins and some tartlets.
Now Tim Gunn is going around visiting the 3 designers and 1 whiner.
Tim Gunn: Fish Scales.
Kenley: Yeah, everyone should wear fish scales. I love it.
Kenley, you going down!
Tim Gunn to Mousey girl (aka Leanne): I see Hello Dolly.
Serious, what's with that color?!??!?! That color is not found in nature. Not.
The mixture is uber easy to make. It calls for 3 tablespoons of lemon zest - that's a hella lot of zest. I didn't have that much so it was a little light on the zest.
Back to the show: Oh no, Leanne is succumbing to "reality-show-sleep-deprivation-and-stress" syndrome. Oh god, everyone is crying now and we haven't gotten to the runway show yet!
The runway show. The color of Leanne's dress isn't as bad on the runway...but that fabric in the back is weird.
Nina's best line ever about Kenley: Kinda creepy. Reptile. Not young, hip, or cool at all.
Final: Oh, just like last year...all four make collections and then they are judged. Kinda let down because Kenley will be back, but I'm glad Korto isn't gone.
Oh yeah, make these cookies! Here is the recipe on Martha's website.
