Tonight I'm making "haystacks" which I've always called macaroons. Went to a party last weekend where they were served, with slivered almonds and dried cranberries added. Very scrumptuous. The recipe is very simple with few ingredients and it's from Silver Palate.

hmmm, "scrummy"? I'll take that as a compliment! Actually, it was one of the easiest cakes I've ever made.

Scrummy is a combination of "Yummy" and "scrumptious" so it is a compliment.

I went to a winetasting on Saturday at the Still Museum and these blue cheese and fig savories were served as a dessert. Epicurious seems to think they are an appetizer. Whatever! Little thumbprint cookies made from blue cheese dough, with fig preserves (or whatever you would like) in the thumbprint.

It's a good thing that I enjoyed making pumpkin pie. I rolled out the crust using my great grandmother's rolling pin that my daughter had new handles made for. The crust went into the pan very well and the filling fit perfectly. I cooked it the right amount of time and set it to cool on a special iron pie holder. Then, when I picked up the pie holder to take it to the table, it slid right off onto the floor! The flaky crust separated into a thousand pieces. I was crushed.

But Friend EDelmar picked everything up and even vacumed the floor for me. And everyone enjoyed ice cream and spiced peaches for dessert. The pie wasn't missed. I'm going to have to make another one soon, just so I can enjoy the taste of it. I think I'll just get rid of that iron pie holder though.
