My Late Summer Flower Garden

My most favorite season is Spring, but Summer and early Autumn are next on my list.

I love the beauty of flowering plants, and wish they would last forever.  However, the hot weather and the upcoming Autumn season is already marking its presence in my summer garden.

Most of my vegetable plants are done for the season, except tomatoes, so I am hoping that my second try with seeding cucumbers, dill, parsley and red beets will be successful before the frost gets here.  I will keep you posted, as this is my first time ever trying to extend the growing season of these veggies and herbs.

One Hour French Bread – Quick and Delicious Homemade Bread Recipe

I love fresh bread, and lately have been testing many breads and rolls recipes.  They all are absolutely delicious.

Some require a little more time than others, but none are too labor intensive or difficult to achieve.

I always thought that the ” No Knead”  bread recipe was simple, and it is, but when I found this one for ONE HOUR bread, I could  not believe it, until I made it and found it absolutely effortless and delicious.

I would have made it into a baguette, but since I do not have a  special baking pan it requires, I used two loaf pans instead.

Raspberry Torte – Recipe

The Raspberry Torte has been my daughter’s favorite Ukrainian torte for many years now, so I try to make it for her special occasions.

This torte requires some delicate handling of the baked cake layers, since each layer is baked separately, and somewhat challenging to remove from the cake pan, similar to the Irene Torte.
