I Serve up Two of the Most Divine Fruit Desserts I’ve Ever Tried. Yer Welcome!

The recipe for this French Apple Tart comes from ‘America’s Test Kitchen’

Food mag­a­zine cov­ers often catch my eye.

Such was the case recently when I was brows­ing the racks of a new­stand at the Toronto air­port on my way to to visit my elderly mum in Lon­don, UK.

I Finally Bake the Ultimate Banana Bread: Freezing the Bananas is my Nifty Trick

ultimate banana bread

Bananas are not my favourite fruit. That is, eaten raw.

The win­dow of oppor­tu­nity for eat­ing a raw banana that’s just at the right moment of ripeness — smooth yet ever so slightly al dente in tex­ture with the hint of sweet­ness and a slightly sour under-taste — is so nar­row that I’ve pretty well given up.

Delectable Butter Tarts from Wilkie’s in Cottage Country Take the Cake

Orillia’s Famous But­ter Tart Bakery

I’ve been mean­ing to make the trip to Oril­lia — a place you can’t miss about an hour’s drive north of Toronto en route to Muskoka’s cot­tage coun­try — for many years.

The rea­son, of course, is food — in this case, one of my absolute favourites: but­ter tarts.

Peach Galette — Finally Got it!

When I get obsessed with a recipe, it per­vades my wak­ing and sleep­ing hours.

Of late, it’s been peach galette, how much ground almonds to use in the layer below the peaches, what oven tem­per­a­ture, how long to bake — the list goes on. Then comes the test­ing and re-testing until Ross and I are  eat­ing the dessert daily and the freezer is full of  var­i­ous ren­di­tions, all clearly labelled.
