Spring Shrimp and Asparagus Salad; Disappointments — 7 Comments

  1. Hi Kate, Maggie Hardisty from Vendee. How do we get you blog these days? Will write properly to you soon. love Maggie

  2. The best dessert at this time of year is something with fruit – cherry clafoutis, or nectarine croustade, or strawberry shortcake, or just a plate of sliced fruits with a bite of chocolate to finish. Happy Fruiting Season!

  3. Triple Layer Carrot Cake. This is a very good recipe, I did substitute 3/4 c. applesauce unsweetened for half the oil & 2 1/2 c powdered sugar, instead of 4. I baked this in 2 9″ pans instead of 3 & it worked out fine. Love your blog & I read it every day.

  4. Hi Maggie, sent you the info – come visit!

    Zoomie, normally I would agree but our plums are late and our cherries tasteless this year… too much rain and not enough sun I think. Strawberries are done and peaches in the near future… LOL

    Thanks, Linda ;-))

    Great looking carrot cakes – thanks Phyllis and Kathy – I like the idea of applesauce… bet that makes it moist.! And thanks for reading, Kathy!

  5. You can get sweetened condensed milk in France – either Nestlé or Dolilait (from Leader Price) – it’s called “lait concentré sucré”. You can even buy it in a tube for those who like to eat it from the spoon! I use it thickened with lemon juice to make an easy lemon pie.

    Very jealous of your lovely kitchen garden.
