This is a bonus #AppleWeek post because I didn't fit in a pie into this week...but I wanted to be sure and share my thoughts on the beautiful pie pan I received from one of the sponsors!  Thanks, Pyrex.


This is the 9-1/2" pie plate from Pyrex's Watercolor Collection. I have pie pans that are metal and pie pans that are ceramic, but I love using glass pie pans. I have two smaller ones, but this one is deep and perfect for piling in lots of filling. I can't wait to use it more as we get into baking season. 

Anyway, my oven isn't working right now, so I drove over to my parents' house to use theirs. When my mom saw the plate, she said, "I think I'm going to have to take that!" Ummmm...nope. It's mine. All mine.


Whenever I have a tons of apples, I make jars of applesauce to use throughout the winter in my baking adventures. While I love homemade applesauce so I can control the amount of sugar, use whatever you have on-hand.

Applesauce Cake

Ingredients
  • 1 C (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
  • 1 C organic dark brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1/2 C organic granulated sugar
  • 1/4 C honey
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 C chunky applesauce
  • 3 C flour
  • 2 t baking soda
  • 1 T ground cinnamon
  • 1 t ground cardamom
  • 1/2 t ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 t ground all-spice
  • 1/2 t ground ginger


Procedure

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and spices. Butter your pie pan and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and honey until lightened and fluffy. Add in the eggs and beat again. Stir in the applesauce.

Fold the dry ingredients into the applesauce mixture to form a thick batter. Spoon the batter into the buttered pan and smooth the top.

Bake until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean, approximately 50 to 60 minutes.

Cool on a wire rack for, at least, 10 minutes before slicing. 


You can serve this with a dusting of powdered sugar or a dollop of ice cream. We ate it just like this!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
