It was never "years." The longest was 14 months. And I still made out with one chick three times in that 14 months, so I think we're pretty safe to assume that I'm as studly as they come.

I think it is great, fabulous even, that you are doing pastry. I don't eat sweets, so I have no inclination.

I don't eat sweets either, really. Much more happy with a cheese plate than a dessert. But I guess I started getting bored with coming up with savory dishes (not that I was anywhere near mastering that or anything, just kind of complacent after writing specials for several months) and this is a fun avenue to explore. But damn, it's intense. It was so much work to do those migs, and it ended up being only 3 bites for each person. It's an entirely different mindset, w hich is fun.

I had some key lime pie last night, does that count for anything?

+1. Anything with tart citrus. Also tart berries. Most desserts are just too sweet.

It is legitimately good. My biggest problem with desserts is that there is often too much of it which ruins everything, for me. But key lime pie...man that hits all the right notes for deliciosity .

Sidenote: this recipe looks good http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/14/dining/rustic-sugar-plum-crostata-with-lemon-thyme-recipe.html?ref=dining

You think I could get away with using a frozen pie crust instead of that? Really hate making crusts. Also--where can I get lemon thyme? I don't think I've ever seen it in stores.

You might find it at an herb garden center. That's where I got mine. I have never seen it in stores. It is a fantastic herb--great in both sweet and savory applications--and is well worth seeking out.

There are two varieties: one is called simply "lemon thyme" and the other is "golden" lemon thyme. The golden variety is better, in my opinion.

Well, duh. One is golden, the other isn't.

Here, it is available everywhere. Annoyingly so, because I occasionally grab it when I am trying to buy real thyme. If you can't find it, just use thyme and add a little more zest. I imagine that in a key lime recipe it is the thyme flavor that distinguishes it, not the slightly lemony undertones.

My advice remains the same. Use thyme, add lemon zest. Fucktard.
