SRC May Reveal: Baking and Boys

Secret Recipe Club
It's time for the May Secret Recipe Club reveal...

What's the Secret Recipe Club? It's a group started by Amanda of Amanda's Cookin'. Each month, every participant is assigned to someone else's blog from which they pick a recipe - or two - to make and post, but it's all a secret until the big day. Today's the day. I always love a kitchen challenge and some culinary adventure.

This month I was assigned Baking and Boys. Katrina, a fellow resident of Testosterone Land, writes "My life as of late is lovin' these four boys and my husband, too. Oh, and I bake, too." I can relate. And bake Katrina does. Along with two friends, she created a recipe for Hard-Boiled Egg Cookies. How about Chocolate Truffle Tartlets with Andes Mint and Oreos? Her Apple Tartlet for Fall looks delectable. I think I gained ten pounds just by reading her blog!

From her chicken pot pie post, I made this version. I followed her instructions pretty much to a 't', so click over there for the recipe. I did change up the vegetables, using parsnips, fresh peas, leeks and rhubarb. And I used fresh mint as a seasoning. Apologies in advance for not creating a more thorough post, but I'm out the door for a funeral right now. Sorry. Thanks to Jane for posting this into the link-up for me.


Thank you, Katrina, for the great inspiration. I can't remember the last time I made a pot pie


  1. Hi Camilla! I was assigned your blog this month and made Funky Monkey S'mores. So yummy!

  2. Ah! Thanks for baking from my blog. So fun. And yes, baking is my forte. ;) Your post makes me want pot pie for dinner! I have never put rhubarb in something savory. Sounds like a must try! Sorry you've had to go to a funeral. :)

  3. Rhubarb - I've never thought to put that in a savory dish, let alone a pot pie. Fabulous idea, Camilla. Sending you good thoughts for today.

  4. mmm, chicken pot pie. i'm sorry for your loss.

  5. This looks delicious! I made chicken pot pie for my SRC post this month for group C--great minds, huh?! :-)
