Welcome to My New Home  

 

Welcome to my new home on the web.  Come on in and have a look around!  This has been quite a learning experience, designing this site and getting it up and running. Jumping over from my old home at Blogger was a little bit scary, but thanks to the brilliant people at Squarespace, it has been a lot of fun.  If you're a blogger and you don't know about Squarespace, you might want to check them out.  It's a blogging/web site platform that is incredibly customizable and will also host your site.  It's amazing the control you have over your design, without having to know HTML or CSS coding, or depending on a designer for every little change.   And, besides, they're just so darn nice! 

So browse around and let me know what you think!

Note: If you have this site bookmarked, please remember to update it.  If you are subscribed, you don't need to do a thing.  

I have a lot of delicious recipes coming up, so let's get cooking!

Plum Almond Cake

 

Last year at this time, when plums were in season, I posted a recipe for Chez Panisse's Plum Tart that people still e-mail me about. This year, for plum season, I wanted to share a recipe for an incredibly easy dessert that you can enjoy the next morning with your coffee. It's like a plum cake that takes only a few minutes to assemble and then bake. Since it only uses egg whites, I save my egg yolks and the next day I either make fresh pasta with them or some kind of delicious chocolate dessert that requires egg yolks.
