Satsuma Centerpiece for the Thanksgiving Table


Satsuma tangerines are one of the highlights of Fall for me.  These little, clementine-like fruits are sweet and perfumey.  They are super-easy to peel and they have no seeds.  At market they are sold with leaves attached, making them pretty too. Fill your favorite bowl with satsumas and voilá, you have a centerpiece and a […]

Pomegranates, Clementines and Red Pears, Oh My!

Easy Apples


This is another of my favorite gizmo’s: I got this apple peeling gadget from L.L. Bean many years ago when I was first married.  I get so many comments from people, especially kids, who come into my kitchen to visit.  While it may seem ridiculous to have something that just peels apples, it is really useful for […]

Fantastic Figs


When I lived in California, so many people had fig trees.  This time of year was replete with this biblical fruit.

These huge cakes originated in Spain.  They are made […]
