I am absolutely crazy about this dessert! It is so simple to make, I actually made it and baked it while I was preparing our dinner the other night. When my sous chef dish-washing mom and the Chief realized there was something in the oven they both got pretty excited. I haven’t been baking much lately and so a fresh blueberry tart was a huge hit!
What I really like about this recipe is that it is low sugar and high on berry flavor. I started with the berries, a little corn starch and a little white sugar mixed together and spooned into the bottom of these little glass tart dishes. But wait there’s more! Click to continue reading
When spending time in England this summer The Chief and I noticed early on that something was missing from the crowds.
Obesity. Oh, we would see an occasional overweight person (probably a visiting tourist from the USA) but over-all people just seemed thinner.
If spending time with our friends was any indication we concluded it may be because they walk so much more than we do.
And I mean walking for the sake of walking. Walking after dinner, strolling down to the market place, or spending an afternoon on one of the many thousands of footpaths that dot the landscape of the UK. But wait there’s more! Click to continue reading
This is the time of year that farmer’s markets are plentiful around the United States and other areas of the world that are enjoying summertime! If you aren’t in the habit of shopping your farmers market I might say you are missing some of the best summer has to offer. Most generally the vegetables and fruits are picked that day or the day before. FRESH from the garden to your table.
Cucumbers, Squash, Red Potatoes
Cucumbers, Peppers, Onions, Squash
Green, Red, and Burpless Peppers
Peppers and Cabbage
From our local farmer’s market all of these vegetables came in a basket for $20! This is a really good deal because 4 BIG ripe tomatoes came along with them, but somehow I missed getting a picture of them before I cleaned them and I promptly made bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches.
