Grammy Lindquist's Blueberry Cake with White Vinegar Sweet Sauce

 


It's blueberry season on Gap Mountain and the first batch came down from the blueberry patch yesterday afternoon. Every year, SB tends the bushes by cutting away brush to encourage the sun and rain to tend the berries ... and not the weedy brush. The pay off is great when nature provides the right amount of sun and rain, no late frosts arrive to freeze the blossoms, and no dry spells settle in to wither the tiny berries.

This years promises to be a bumper crop year! Huzzah !

Cherry Almond Biscotti

 



Chilly grey day ... baking to warm up the kitchen and give SB and I a nice, crisp snack to have with a cuppa this afternoon.  The days of baking sweets once or twice a week have long gone. I'm convinced that we appreciate cookies more, now that they are truly an infrequent treat.

Hamentaschen in Honor of Purim


 

You know how you can get obsessed about making a recipe now and then that you haven't thought about in ages ? These little cookies popped into my mind, last week at about the same time that I saw a post about Purim online.

Penne alla Vodka ...Who Knew ?

 


They say that Spring is on the way. I saw, "Ha! Look at all that snow ! Let's stay in by the fire and make a bowl of pasta for supper !"

It's been ages since I posted a quick food share, but Valentine's Day and my 42nd (count 'em!) wedding anniversary called for a special dessert splurge.
