vanilla cinnamon macadamia nut cookies

 


I really want it to be soup 🍲 Weather but it's not.  It's not even 🍪  baking Weather.  Why is Weather capitalized?  I'm deferring to my MacBook spelling bar and if it wants to capitalize Weather -so be it.
That's the kind of mood I'm in right now.  I would also like to know why I'm having paragraph issues with my blog right now?  I figured out how to fix the issue but it's always something new that acts up here, why -oh why doesn't anything stay the same?  Now that's a good question for you.  It's hot 🥵  here, let me check my Weather channel app, it's 91 and rising.  I made these vanilla cinnamon macadamia cookies 🍪  last year, they're crispy and good, but I never shared the recipe on my previous blog so here it is on the new one.  I just wish I had a few of these cookies 🍪 to make me feel better today 😂

pear jam with saffron infused honey and cardamom

Pear Jam with Saffron Infused Honey and Cardamom

The summer after high school I worked sorting Bartlett pears at the Scotts Valley Fruit Exchange in Lake County California.  I thought I would never touch or eat another pear again in my life. But, here I am years years later making pear jam in my kitchen with pears, honey and saffron grown in Lake County.  A few weeks ago My husband and I went to visit friends in Kelseyville at their finca, they generously supplied me with the pears from their orchard-Finca Castelero- for my jam.  I will never forget getting up early in the morning and riding my bike across the valley from my cousin's house to work a long hot day sorting pears.  I remember thinking whoever came up with the idea of creating a cooperative to sort, pack and send pears from family farms, including my cousin's family farm on what is now called Hendricks road, to markets all over the country really had a good idea!  I never looked at pears in the grocery store the sam…

French strawberry cream cake

Gracie, my 10 year old granddaughter  and I have been wanting to make a strawberry cake with whipped cream for such a long time, we made it happen this week.  I found what I think is a do-able recipe for a French style cake with strawberries and a cream filling to make at home with basic baking ingredients including fresh strawberries which are still in season.  We baked a butter cake for the base, then we cleaned, trimmed and sliced the strawberries together. We used a springform pan for the cake; the cake was trimmed and put back into the pan with a parchment collar to support the berries and cream topping.  Then we whipped up a cream cheese, sugar and heavy cream mixture that we piped around and into the strawberries that we layered around the sides and into the center of the cake.  We put aside a few sliced strawberries to decorate the top before serving.  The cake has to be refrigerated over night for the cream filling to firm up so it can be sliced cleanly.  We both enjoyed ou…
