Apple Crisp

I had my friends Devi and Rose over last week for a little celebration lunch for our friend Rose’s birthday. On a warm September Friday afternoon I thought I would keep our lunch on the lighter side and made veggie sandwiches, soup, and salad. Devi brought fresh cut fruit and fresh figs from her garden, and since my friend Rose is the queen of baking 😋👑🍪 she was assigned to bring dessert. For our humble lunch Rose brought not just one sweet treat but two! A delectable apple crisp and biscotti. Continue reading Apple Crisp

Jam Bars

These delectable bars are perfect to use up a few summertime fruit jams. With a flaky buttery crust, a fruity jammy middle, and a crumbly topping, these bars taste so good that one can never stop with just one piece. My friend Rose made these jam bars and dropped them off one afternoon and I have to say on a lazy summer afternoon they were the perfect sweet treat with a cup of tea.  I have to admit when I first saw the recipe it looked pretty intimidating, but when I got around to actually making the bars the recipe was surprisingly very easy to follow.  Give it a try!

Raw Mango Chutney & Sweet Apple on Baguette

If you are looking for an artsy avant garde appetizer that tastes outstanding then this recipe is for you. Sour from the raw mango, sweet from the apples, and delicious from the addition of green chillies and onions. This is the type of unique appetizer that comes from Indians who lived in Morocco and now live here in the Bay Area- a true global background my friend Radhika and her Mom have.
