Rosé Sangria with Summer Stone Fruit

Rosé Sangria with Summer Stone Fruit

I’ve been jonesin’ for Rosé since returning from Paris and I’m no wine expert, but I could be with the variety I’ve enjoyed over the years.  I’m just not interested in being an expert, preferring to enjoy what I’m sipping when I’m sipping it.   […]

I love baked apples;  in pies, cobblers, cakes, — you name it, and I love them. But I think apple crisp is my favorite.  I’ll blame it on my brother since he was crazy over it when we were growing up.  And if he knew […]

Pomegranate Vanilla Pot-de-Creme

Pomegranate Vanilla Pot-de-Creme

I can't resist pomegranates.  Although I've never owned a tree, I can remember knowing where at least one was growing when I was young — no matter where I lived — and kept an eye on it to see if it mattered to whomever owned […]
