So how is everyone surviving the snow?

I for sure thought I would lose power. But it looks like we will get through it easier than I thought. It's cold out there though. I have well over a foot in the hills of Snohomish and the cars are stuck in the driveway. I have an acre of dtiveway to get to the road so we aren't going anywhere. Waste management won't be picking up tomorrow and my full circle CSA box is delayed till Sat. SO walked down and mail was delivered both yesterday and today! Gotta love the Post Office

Doesn't this look Absolutely Delicious?


Smitten Kitten does it again with an Apple Sharlotka.

Apple Sharlotka

Adapted from Alex’s mother, who adapted it from her mother, and so on…

Butter or nonstick spray, for greasing pan
6 large, tart apples, such as Granny Smiths
3 large eggs
1 cup (200 grams) granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup (125 grams) all-purpose flour
Ground cinnamon, to finish
Powdered sugar, also to finish

Directions at link seem pretty easy too....


Now I just need someone to make it for me and take it away so I only eat 1 piece....

They fed my addiction for Christmas

For a few years now I have coveted the Actifry which was only available in Europe. I have longly watched the youtubes of happy europeans making their gobs of chips in just one tablespoon of oil. I have satisfied myself knowing that I could of course do all that in the oven...Bah who needs this little UFO of kitchen joy?


ME! And now it's MINE!

Chips...tomorrow! Then onto Stirfry and Risottos...

And here's Ming Tsai making Larb

My Yearly Lament

Every year just around this time I long for Thomas's Date Nut Bread. I troll the grocery stores hoping against hope that it will magically appear...But they just don't make it anymore.

Yes I know there are countless numbers of date nut bread recipes out there...from Aunt Martha's to the kind you bake in tomato soup cans. I have tried a number of them. They just aren't the same.

There was something about peeling that cellophane off the sticky sweet loaf...taking a whiff and smearing it with a healthy schmeer of Philly. Those days are gone ...and my daughter will never know that rapturous first bite....

So with that being said....Here's my gift link to you...

The Automat's Creamed Spinach Recipe. (just scroll down a bit)

I have a Threefer coming up

I'm cooking for Hanukkah, Christmas, and the Husbands Birthday.

Hanukkah is easy....I'm doing Usual Latkes...and a big fruit salad. I may bag out of Christmas and just hope they have pity on me and we can all go out for Chinese....I do have my eye on a crown roast I saw at the butcher though. Stuffed with my sausage and apple dressing....What could be better. I'll make a Tiramisu for the husbands birthday but he likes to go out for Mexican so that makes my life a bit easier. The days of cooking that Prime Rib the day after Christmas are long gone.....
