Tarte Fine

I love apple desserts and this tarte is no exception! I used lovely honey crisp apples for this dessert. A nice crisp apple with a slight sweetness. As I slice the apples, I couldnt help but slice and eat, slice and eat, slice and eat! I'm not crazy about egg washes so I went with the alternate sugar and butter. A lotta budda!!! But! I'm enjoying it! Thanks to Leslie of Lethally Delicious.

Coffee Break Muffin

I was so tempted to add chocolate chips to these muffins but resisted. I added a little crunch on top by sprinkling some demera sugar on top of each muffin before baking. I also used instant decaf coffee. Perhaps the coffee flavor would've been stronger if I used a brewed coffee. Nonetheless, these muffins were pretty fantastic and thoroughly enjoyed. Thanks to Rhiani of Chocoholic Anonymous for a great pick this week!

Peach and Raspberry Upside Downer

I've got cranberries! Or so I thought... I didn't do a good job freezing them and they turned into freeze-dried, freezer-burned cranberries. Oh well. Peaches and raspberries it is! This cake came together pretty easy. I think I would love the spice and cranberry combination together better. I did add almond extract with the vanilla considering the peaches. The almond is a nice touch. This cake is pretty addictive. I must confess, I ate three slices tonight. I'm gonna pay for that one! Hey, check out Sabrina's blog site Superfluos for the recipe. She did cranberries and pecans.

Peanut Butter Crisscrosses

Thank God for forgiving cookies! I told myself these are a eazy-peezy, and then I forgot to add the egg... nice, Lisa. So as I said, a forgiving cookie cause after I added the dry ingredients, in went the egg. These cookies are great. I used good ol smooth Skippy peanut butter. They're a nice mild peanut butter cookie that doesn't shout from the roof top - PEANUT BUTTER I AM!!! It's more a smooth operator kinda cookie. I like that...

Merci Jasmine for your selection. Check out her cookies. They look so sugary and good!
