What are you baking these days? September 2014, part 2!

I made an apple and a sour cherry pie on the weekend. Fall is the time for pies for me anyways.

Jamming, canning and preserving 2014

Rose hip jam or jelly is quite delicious. It is also a nice fruit in teas. It is supposed to be very good for the skin.

Butters are in vogue it seems. Seen a number of pictures of plum butter recently.

Mexigo - 15616 Gouin Boul. in the west island

Quesada in Galarie des Sources is quite good if you like the tacos and burritos.

I failed to restrain myself and folded and bought another cookbook on my weekly Chapters run. I purchased the Homemade Pantry by Alana Chernila. It has 101 foods you can stop buying and start making so the subtitle says.

Chapter's is oh so dangerous. I was looking at a book by Sam Stern but logic prevailed for once!

I meant bookshelves which I put in only one area of my house. I had cookbooks all over the place and now that they are in one place reality is setting in. I have a lot of cookbooks. It's great that they are in one place but I do not want to have more than what is in that particular bookshelf. Just gave three books to my nephew and will continue to do some purging. However I love my cookbooks.

Cookbooks or recipes for jaded, time-constrained mom

I like Marcy Goldman's book when Bakers Cook. The recipes are simple.

can I pasteurize my raw milk icecream that made me sick and rechurn?

You want to give a two year old raw milk that made you sick? Not a good idea, young children are even more susceptible to infections their immune systems are not as strong as an adults.

I had my cookbooks in three rooms of the house. Yesterday I bought a library and moved them to one area. Cookbook collecting is going to stop for me, to some extent. I just do not have the room. I was amazed at the books I bought and had forgotten about them. Having them in one place is functional, practical. I will be going through mine and giving some away as well.

Picked up some very old Betty Crocker books series of sorts from 1963-1970 ish. I love the pictures and book covers. As well two books I have been scouting over the last few months, The Cake Bible, and The Pie Bible by Rose B.-Levy.

Other varieties of grapes grow as well in this cold climate. Across Canada vineyards are thriving, making wine, ciders and ice wines. I make grape jelly with the concord grapes, it is quite delicious.

Black Forest Cake

Some of the Costco cakes are quite good, do they have a black forest. I do like the one from Swiss Vienna, but it really is about childhood memories, we have been buying it from there for years.

Continental Breakfast Challenge - so sick of Costco muffins & Yoplait.

I put hard boiled eggs in my church buffet but some partakers complain about the smell. My solution was to keep the eggs in a clear colored dish, they get gobbled up all the time!

I often purchase second hand cookbooks. I had been looking for a series authored by Soeur Berthe, which had been written in the early 70's. She is a demure little french nun, who used to be on television in Quebec. The second hand bookstore had taken down my request months ago and called today to say they had the collection, I was thrilled! As well purchased another copy of the Laura Secord Canadian Cookbook as the family recipe box contained many recipes from this book, I am going to pass it along to my sister who keeps talking about my Mom's baking. It was a good day today.

My Chowhound Wedding

It reminds me of an elegant meal from Downton Abbey!

Summer has crept by on us Fowler. It has not been the hottest summer, we have had quite a bit of intermittent cold weather and it feels too soon for the grapes to be is season. I am from Montreal and already the trees are turning yellow a little and starting to loose their leaves.

Have you ever made Boston Cream Pie?

I am always impressed by your cakes and pictures of them. I envision a beautiful china plate with that cake and a nice cup of tea.

What I Learned After Taking a Homeless Mother Grocery Shopping

We can start by being aware that we are very privileged and stop taking food and water for granted. We can look around us and help those in need and start paying things foward.

I bought The Canadian Heritage Cookbook, Madi Heatter's Book of Great Desserts, Favorite Recipes from Old New Brunswick Kitchens, and Carolyn Coggin's Company Cookbook, all for eight dollars at a second hand bookstore.
