I Am Mildly Obsessed with Rosemary Cornmeal Crackers and Sassy Blogger Ladies.

Sometimes you see the perfect recipe right at the perfect time in your life.

Let’s say you’ve just started your own vegetable garden, complete with rosemary bush that was originally purchased for Christmas cheeriness and now is living a happy life next to some radishes, beets, and cabbage.

Let’s say that this recipe is featured on a blog that also seems like it came around at just the perfect time in your life. Right after starting your own WordPress blog, you discover a sassy baker lady whose own blog is full of life, love, butter, and sugar — much like you wish your own to be. Movita Beaucoup. You experience that special type of jealousy-love-girl-crush that only exists in the food/craft blogging world. You want to make her a birthday cake. (Dude, Movita, I’m totally entering that contest.  And hopefully not embarrassing myself.)

Okay, maybe not you. But I sure did.

And then I made some crackers. Rosemary Cornmeal Crackers. Normally I would not think of baking something savory, but the idea of using my new access to fresh rosemary to make something Movita-worthy…well, it just had to be done.

The warmth of the rosemary, the nutty crunch of the cornmeal, the crisp thinly-rolled dough…it was unlike anything else I’ve ever made.

And they certainly didn’t last very long.

In addition to having them with topped with some salmon, spinach, and balsamic vinegar for dinner, Dan and I snacked on them constantly until they were completely gone a mere 40-something hours later. For something not containing chocolate, that might be a record in our house.

I can’t wait to really get the garden going with more herbs so that I can try lots of different cracker combinations. Basil crackers? Oregano crackers? Thyme crackers? Sage crackers? I am unnecessarily excited.

Thank you, Movita. It’s all your fault.

  1. Raising a glass to a) how awesome Movita Beaucoup is and b) taking a big ol’ sip in celebration of all of the sassy blogger ladies out there and c) your pics are friggin’ gorgeous 😉 Cheers from yet another sassy blogger lady on the web.

  2. Oh Lord, jealousy-love-girl-crushes – I’m glad to see they are a widespread phenomenon and I don’t have to hide mine any more. Of course, you are now on the list – these crackers looks outstandingly good. Sage and parmesan would also be epic, or lemon and thyme, or basil and pine nut… I, too, am unnecesarily excited.

    • Modern – Oh yes, they are. Addictive.

      Movita – You deserve it! I’m happy to make the day of awesome bloggers any time.

      Dirty Girls – Right on. Glass was raised, sipped, and emptied because I am incapable of just a sip. You guys are awesome sassy blogger ladies, too! We should start a club. (And thanks for the pics comment! I am not good at accepting compliments. I am blushing as we type.)

      Rock – Never hide your girl crushes. I think that Pinterest was founded on the concept of internet girl crushes. And all of those cracker combinations? Holy crap. I need a bigger garden.

      Thanks all of you guys for the comments! I’ve never had so many. I am a big dork and am flummoxed by the attention. If we were talking in person, I’d be bright red and stammering, I swear.
