My kitchen is a busy place..both my husband and I love to be in the kitchen ..he has become such a good cook in the last few years.. my favorite home made pizzas..prosciutto..now pastrami..our roast chickens..all our home made fries..(baked)..some breads..some salad dressings..not to mention his wine..but that's done in another room:)~
It's a pleasure to be there....almost our favorite room in our home..simply because it is bright and busy:)
Last week..I spied at Les Gourmandises d'Isa..a cake that awakened my curiosity simply because I loved the look of the top..:)
Imagine..So I read everything and saw that the original recipe was from David Rocco(I like him..) but made with apples..Isa..made hers w/ pears and I just had 2 very ripe pears..
This cake is delicious..Jacques scores it in the nines:)
My kitchen looks a bit too busy there but I was preparing something else when I took this photo.My little peppers are still going strong..the windowsill basil..better than outside..and the Rosemary Christmas Tree I received at Christmas..(edible) still satisfies the rosemary recipes I have.
You can spot an Ann T knife rack in the background..left..they are beautiful:) ..my friend's French brocante canister set from France before she married while dating her husband..over 40 yrs old..I treasure them..my favorite hand soap for the kitchen..Cucina..from Fruits Et Passion..I have been using it it for yrs and yrs..
My ME birthday calendar to the right..it's so old I am embarrassed to say..but a gift from my childhood friend so many many years ago..The Milk bottles..from my favorite shop in town that closed yrs ago:(...my Matryoshka measuring cups from my daughter.. and an EVOO bottle..
The Paris canisters..:) Not really from Paris..
Anyways..I am rambling..but this IS ..our spot..J'aime tellement être dans la cuisine.♥
So ..here is the link to the cake at Isa's..she is a Canadian .. from QC.. a cookbook author of 2 beautiful books that I know of..
and here is the link to David Rocco's recipe..from Kitchen Heals Soul..how appropriate and thus my kitchen in the collage..~as it does act as a spiritual place for me..
As I said..I used pears..and baked for longer..
The aroma in the house was so wonderful..you were hungry for the cake before you saw it..:)
Very few ingredients..easy as anything..I hope you try it.
I think you could be very happy that you did.~
