I know I have said that before..but I do ..only when ..it is a perfect 10..
Without any notes on my part..
This recipe..has a small note..I added vanilla sugar and cardamom:)and used the apples I had on hand..Honeycrisps..
I don't think halving it counts..
and even if it does..?
Well.. it halves perfectly:)
You will find the recipe here..for these fabulous Apple Cake Tartlets...
Bonus travel pics!
Try this recipe:)
It is undeniably perfect.
The next day if you leave your tarts sous cloche they will have softened..but the exquisite taste remains.
The weather is hanging in there..still more leaves to fall but a lot of our garden chores are coming to an end..Amazingly some things I am cutting back..well it seems downright sacreligious~
Nepeta Catmint is full full and blooming..hated to snip it off..Some roses.. nasturtiums..Those I am still saving..and I brought in some geraniums to see if I can overwinter them.
More mess..I seem to look for trouble with wintering my plants.
But I get attached to each and every plant I grow indoors ♥You care for them and watch them all progress..
We have 2 huge Ficus trees I will finally let go of after 30 yrs:( They are too big and too messy with their sap.
The room will look bare..This coming Spring..:(
I wish my daughter's friend still lived where that view is....So sweet.
My friend Nancy came for lunch..She is in Paris as I type..she brought me roses..and carnations.The roses reminded me of the color of apples..the outer peel that lovely shade of red..and the inside..creamy ...
From a very cute and popular Tea Room she visited when she lived here.
Need I say I miss her too?
That's the thing about certain special people that move away ..physically..
When you see them again..all the warmth is there..it never goes away.
And it makes you wish they had just stayed put...
We had macarons when she came .. for dessert that is..and I had bought them..
But I think she would have fancied a little tart also.
Pretty soon all the leaves will have fallen and things around here will be quite monochrome..
A black and white movie instead of technicolor~
The heat went on for the first time this AM..
To every thing there is a season~
