Oh spring, where have you gone?
Just this week, after a particularly miserable Wednesday in more ways than one, a magnificent Thursday followed all at once. Bright blue skies were matched by a soft breeze and Aberdeen’s granite cast pools of cold shadows on the pavement. I was dashing around this wonderful city in the morning, my little phone serving as my dictaphone as I chatted and laughed with some wonderful people with intriguing stories to tell. I sipped a beautiful Lavender Citrus iced tea, squinted my eyes in the sunshine as I sucked on a Caramel Frappuccino (first of the year!) and talked and talked.

So when this glorious day disappeared as the wind whipped against the side of the flat, creating cows’ licks at the sides of…

March is chocolate and ice-cream free for cherrysandwich. This hopefully means an expansion of the culinary repertoire, rather than a month of deprivation. First on the list – good old apple pie. I’ve taken bits and pieces from lots of other recipes to come up with a decent creation, and much more successful than my previous pastry effort (Choc-orange tarts). I followed all the advice I’d read about keeping the pastry cold and made my first lattice!

1/2 cup almond meal

6 to 8 Tbsp ice water, very cold
1. Rub the butter into the flour, salt and sugar (or if you’re lucky enough to have a food processor, use it!). Add ice water 1 Tbsp at a time, mixing until mixture just begins to clump together. If…

Still wondering what to bring to that Labor Day picnic? Not only is this tart flavorful and attractive, it also hides a pound of eggplant. And who doesn’t have a pound of eggplant to hide at this time of year?I mean, I’ll just go ahead and admit it: sometimes the most popular way to serve eggplant is hidden. Eggplant? What eggplant? My oldest daughter gave this dish an enthusiastic review and said it tasted like pizza.
