Baked Rice with Apples – European Recipe

We all have flashbacks to our favorite foods of the past, which we have not had for a while, and the taste buds are longing for them.

One of those foods for me is white rice baked with apples, sugar and cinnamon, which my mom used to make for us  as a special treat on Sundays.  It does not sound like much today, but then it was very special.

Delicious Homemade Rolls – Based on a Japanese Recipe

I have been searching the net for a recipe to resemble specific rolls dating back to early 70’s, and my memory of summer camp in Ellenville, NY.   Mrs. Kormeluk was the cook at that time, so rolls similar to these were made daily, and served with a cup of cold milk, as an afternoon snack for all the campers.

I have tried several recipes, and tested the texture and taste of these rolls with my children, who also were lucky enough to enjoy the same snack at the same camp, in the 90’s, but by that time, these were baked by Mrs. Tinio.  

Farewell To My Summer Garden

Summer has been technically over several weeks ago, but in my garden, summer is just coming to an end.

Fewer flowers are opening up, more and more plants are drying off, and my vegetable garden is not producing new crops…just letting the remaining ones to complete its cycle.

We had few very cold nights already, but today was a gorgeous day; so with the help of my camera, I captured the remaining beauties in my garden.
