To Slow for Baking

It is Sunday~ but I have not found the time for my Slow Sunday Baking. This week the recipe from 'Dolce Italiano' was a Hazelnut-Grape Tart.

The truth is... I started off on my search for the nuts. I quickly learned that Piggly Wiggly does not carry hazelnuts. They are not on the snackin' nut aisle, or near the peanut butter. Apparently, you can bake with pecans, or pecans. They do carry the tiny bags of walnuts and almonds for anyone determined to branch out.

So I just gave up.

If you are interested in visiting the rest of the Slow Bakers; there are plenty in the kitchen... Baked Alaska, What I Really Think, Old Shoes New Trip, Postcards From The Trail, Destination Anywhere, In and Out of the Garden, and Keep Your Feet In The Street.

I have already made my recipe for next sunday. Zucchini is not a problem in Alabama!
Y'all enjoy,
Sandi

Loved this post. Reminds me of my local small-town store. Usual nut fare is walnuts and pecans.
