Pear Ginger Sparkle And Spice

It’s my birthday!  I don’t care how old I am, I still love it.  Usually I try and stretch it out as long as I can.  Birthday weekend.  Birthday week!

Caramel Apple Tart

The hectic weeks are done (for now) and I can breathe a little again!  Breathe and smell the apples and cinnamon.  

We are being inundated with apples!  There are always apples at the grocery store, so it’s easy to take them for granted most of the time, but we shouldn’t.  I mean, it’s not every day you can get these adorable, small, local apples.  Shiny and bright; red jewels decorating the trees, waiting to be picked.  Just look at them.

These colours!  As we move closer and closer to the time of year where colour and warmth are lacking, let’s look at these and be happy.  No more words, just brightness.

Peach Blueberry Crisp

Apple crisp is one of the desserts my sister used to make often at my parents’ house, way back when we all lived on the same continent.  Apple desserts were my brother’s favourite. I loved it for the crispy oat and brown sugar topping, the vanilla ice cream melting in little pools around it.

Orange Cornmeal Cake With Coronation Grape Sauce

I am taking it one day at a time.  I trudge to work in the dim morning light and return in the dark.  I cannot think too far ahead otherwise the amount of work that is yet to be done will overwhelm me.  I wish there were more hours in the day, more days in the weekend.
