Back in the summer when I was experimenting with gelatin, I made this dessert with watermelon. The dessert was nice and refreshing but it was not too sweet so if you ever try and make it add a little bit more sugar, say 1/2 a cup. The jello part on top was unintentional and I […]

Sometimes when I go to the farmers” market I get carried away and buy more things that we can eat and this is why I wanted to make a tart, as I had a lot of peaches and grapes to use. Would you believe that this is the first time I am making a tart? […]

My children don’t eat a lot of fruit except for my daughter. They boys are rather lazy and eat fruit such as bananas or grapes (only when they are washed) so I have to peel them to get them to eat some. What they like very much is milkshakes and sometimes instead of giving them […]

The best time to make palouzes is late August or during September but as I wanted to share this with you in time, last Tuesday when I went to the farmers’ market, the grapes were at a reasonable price so I bought some sultana grapes to make this dessert. However, any type of white grapes […]
