If you love Tortes, but have been looking for a lighter filling, rather than the traditional butter cream one, this is a great recipe for you. The cake layers are very thin, and the filling is mostly apples, with a nice caramel glaze.
Three years ago I changed the layout of my original veggie garden, turning it into 3 rectangular beds, using over 120 cinder blocks (one cinder block weighs 30 lbs. so it was a really good workout for me…:-)
I was pretty happy with my new garden, until this year after reading an article about cinder blocks, and finding a lot of conflicting information about Fly Ash used in concrete production. I contacted the concrete manufacturer and was reassured that they use only .35% of fly ash, which is quite safe and nothing to worry about.
Now that your memory is so sharp, I thought it would be helpful to post the Smooth and Healthy Skin Smoothie.
This recipe is also from one of my favorite blogs, which I highly recommend to all of you, and I know you will enjoy reading their posts.
Rosh Hashanah is a Jewish religious holiday representing the New Year, so traditionally apples dipped in honey are part of the menu during this holiday.
Today I will post my recipe for a Jewish Apple Cake, which was given to me by a friend a couple of decades ago. I was not sure what made this particular recipe “Jewish”, so I turned to my readers for their feedback. One reader explained that Jewish desserts are usually made without dairy, so they can be served alongside the meat dishes, which also makes it a great dessert for Hanukkah holiday. If anyone else has a different take on this theory, please share your comments
My thoughts and prayers are with all the people left behind, and the souls of the ones perished on that sad day of September 11th, 2001.
My heart is aching for my second cousin and his family, as they lost their oldest son that day, Scott Daniel Bart, who was working in the North Tower.
