Blueberry Pie

Blueberries are everywhere & I am pretty happy about that! There are several recipes I love with blueberries & one of them is this blueberry pie. Just a basic blueberry pie, nothing fancy. 

Turmeric Almond Dressing

Vegetable Torte

This is a wonderful recipe for a layered vegetable torte. This is the perfect time of year to make it with all of the fresh vegetables available at farmers markets, but it would be good anytime of year. You can grill the vegetables or roast them before putting this dish together so it is pretty…

Fresh Strawberry Pie

My sister , Edith, has made this fresh strawberry pie for years. I have always thought it sounded delicious & I wasn’t wrong!!
