Hello Again! Early Autumn Update

102

Hope everyone had a great summer! 

I’m having a wonderful early autumn, currently visiting Vancouver Island and will probably be moving here soon too.

You can read all the details here:Autumn Update

It was a very hectic summer for us so the “chill time” we are now enjoying is much needed and appreciated.

I hope to be back to blogging on a more regular basis in the next few weeks. But for now, sending you all best wishes and thanks for your continued support of my blogs/books…it is most appreciated!

HAVE A FABULOUS FALL!

IT’S MY FAV TIME OF YEAR. 🙂

How Has Your Summer Been So Far???

  060

Wow, did the last two months fly by or is it just me? 😉

I can’t believe that September is just around the corner already.

But IMO, that’s a good thing ’cause my fav season is autumn. 

I hope you have all been having a wonderful summer so far. And it’s not quite over, is it? 😉

How has your weather been? It’s been a VERY dry, hot summer here in BC. 😦

I’m still busy with summer “stuff” right now but have some post ideas and reviews in the works that I hope you’ll enjoy.

I hope to be back to regular posting (and blog visiting!) in the next couple of weeks.

Have an awesome week!!!! G 

Brown Betty

This oh-so yummy photo of Apple Brown Betty stopped me in my WP tracks this morning. 😉 I want some right now.

I make a similar dessert but definitely not with that much butter or sugar. 😦 The photo did inspire me to make some soon though. 🙂 Do you have a fav Brown Betty recipe?

Have a fabulous late autumn weekend. It’s still nice and warm, here in BC. 🙂

Brown Betty is a traditional American dessert made from fruit (usually apple) and sweetened bread crumbs. It is similar to a cobbler or apple crisp, and the fruit is baked.  It is an old dessert, first mentioned in print in 1864.  Apple Brown Betty was one of the favorite desserts of Ronald and Nancy Reagan in the White House.  They served Apple Brown Betty at my elementary school cafeteria and I loved it.  They served real food back in the sixties and seventies!
