Welcome!

I've finally decided that I am a writer - all the other things I do just pay the bills. Someone eloquent once said that if you do what you love, the money will follow. Well, let's just see about that.

RIP Aggie
Aggie was my fifteen-year-old cairn terrier - or maybe I should say I was her 55-year-old person! She was my faithful companion, spoiled rotten and I am still trying to figure out what to do without her.

Bee is Peter's buddy. He's eight years old and has made himself right at home. I guess cats really do come in pairs or sets of three!

Apple Spice Cake...

looks pretty on this ME platter - but it should really be Apple Spice Upside-Down Cake.  All of the apples sank to the bottom of the bundt pan!  The flavor is okay, but it's dryer than I would have expected.  Just another one of my culinary experiments...  On Saturday I made a lovely rustic apple tart sweetened with Truvia and a bit of cinnamon.  It was heavenly - and it smelled so good when I took it out of the oven, it never made it to the find a pretty spot to take a photograph stage!  Aggie liked it, too.
See the sunken apples?  I'm not really sure what kind they are - they were firm and sweet - I think I ate or shared all of the honeycrisps!

  1. You are definitely in the fall spirit. Glad one of those recipes came thru for you.
    At least you dressed the upside down cake up with a pretty platter.

  2. Something about this time of year and applecake. I just tried a new recipe and it was quite good. They had you coat the thin apple slices with sugar and cinnamon. Then layer them with the batter. Do you want the recipe?
