We had some friends over for dinner last night and I wanted to do something Christmas-y for dessert.
For me that means cranberries. So last week I sent
mon mari off in search of the elusive (here) cranberry.
He was successful.
Then I went in search of an was cranberry recipe.
I was successful.
I found this fantastic
Cranberry … Continue reading.....
Is there anything more representative of fall days than the aroma of an apple pie baking?
I don’t make pies – and an entire apple pie would be a lot for 2 people (although, somehow, I think we’d manage….).
But individual Apple Tarts or Little Apple Pies are perfect.
Made with purchased puff pastry they are easy and …
This Cherry Crisp is what I made when my oven quit working.
I baked it for 40 minutes, and the cherries were nicely cooked. The top got a little too dark but I think that was because the thermostat quit working at some point during the baking time. I noted to check it after 35 minutes just in case.

For anyone looking for a quick, easy holiday dessert this is it….
As everyone knows, I don’t do pie crusts, therefor no pies, specifically, no pumpkin pie.
I prefer fruit, anyway and I love cranberries. I did a cranberry cheesecake one year …
Pecan Cake with Brown Sugar Frosting….
And Caramel Sauce….
And Butter Pecan Ice Cream….
Okay, that all may be a bit excessive. Maybe if I made desserts more often I wouldn’t attempt to put it all on one plate at the same time.
It could be ‘gilding the lily’.
Or it could just be really, really good.
I received no …
We were invited to an Auberge Español last week, at the home of some new French friends.
Auberge Español is French for potluck – at least in our area.
Why a potluck is called a ‘Spanish Inn’ I have no idea… I think it has something to do with a 2002 movie of that name about a French student in …
