Tuscan Apple Pie/Torta di Mele Montagliari

This recipe was directly from Judy's web site : I baked two Torta's and I am so glad that I did, because it was gone within 24 hours. It was delicious!

Bravo! The final touches with powdered sugar before it got devoured by my family. Thank you Judy for the delicious recipe!!!

Market Day in Seattle

The Girls were so happy to have their Mum back home!!! They were also very excited to go to the Seattle Market. We had a lovely lunch at our favorite French restaurant "Place Piggali".

First day back from Italy and off we went to the Seattle Market to teach Nadia and Suraya all about the Market...

I could not wait to go to the Market in Seattle. This time, it's not just a quick tour around the Market, get some Starbuck's coffee, eat a croissant from Le Panier and then go home. No, we actually took time looking for fresh fruits, vegetables and visited the Market Butcher. I was also on the hunt for zucchini flowers, but no one in the market had any. I got the strangest looks and was asked, hm? zucchini flowers? What are you going to do with the flowers? So, everything I learned from Judy Witts at Divina Cucina, was flowing out of my brain. Some of the farmers were quite intrigued about the fact that the flowers were edible. One actually said to return next Friday and he will have some for me instead of throwing them away. A day of lessons for the girls and a few of our local farmers. :-)

Let's see what the want-to-be Chef (Sadie) comes up with all these vegetables, fruits and meat from the market.
