When they said that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, they did not specify in what form you had to consume the apple. I choose to consume my apple in the form of pie, pie and more pie. Growing up, apple pie was “the” dessert in our house. My mom baked a lot  Continue Reading »

Have you ever had the experience where a million people will come and ask you if you’ve seen a movie that you haven’t seen and then they will proceed to tell you why you should see it?

Getting to the Fruit of the Matter

Written on May 16, 2010 at 5:31 pm, by admin

I always heed Cath’s call. Whenever she asks if I want to participate in a book event, I’m there. Especially when the author of the book is someone like Deborah Madison. Some people are born to write cookbooks and Deborah is one of those people. Her latest cookbook, Seasonal Fruit Desserts: From Orchard, Farm, and  Continue Reading »

Apples Again

Written on May 19, 2008 at 6:40 pm, by admin

Lately, as I rush out of the house in the morning grabbing at the fruit basket before I go, my reaction tends to be the same, “Apples, again!” Now I love apples. But by this time of year we’ve been on a steady diet of apples as primary fruit since … oh … about September.  Continue Reading »

On any given day, you will find a large basket of fruit on my kitchen table. This is for two reasons. First of all, it encourages my family to eat more fruit. And secondly, it’s pretty to look at.
