Tart Tartin with Creme Fraiche
Asian Beef Stew
My mother-in-law gave me this recipe when I was a newlywed. She had served these delicious mini-burgers for a friendly gathering and I was hooked the minute I tasted them. In the Chicagoland area, there is a fast food restaurant that serves these bite-sized burgers in large quantities. It’s fun to make a load of these for tailgating finger food. I often pack the foil wrapped, pre-cooked burgers in the crockpot to stay warm at the tailgate party. They are always a crowd-pleasing hit!

Living in the Midwest, there is always an abundance of corn available this time of year. A short trip down a country road will lead you to several pop-up farm stands or an old Ford truck sitting with the tail open, piled high with beautiful ears of corn. The honor system is used when payment is needed. An old coffee or a clear mason jar sits atop the bed of the truck. Country customers put their dollars in and take change as they see fit. It always makes me smile to see trusting neighbors and friends supporting local foods.
This week, on my way back from the University, I expected to see the above mentioned vendors dotting the roads on my way home. Due to the late hour, all had packed up and headed home for supper. I had hoped to purchase a dozen ears of corn for a soup…

Sharing my first VEGAN dessert for you all!
I generally bring the desserts you see on here into work. One of my coworkers has been vegan for over 10 years! I always feel bad that she doesn’t get to share in the desserts myself and others bring into work. If you know me, you know I love baking for others to bring them joy! How can I let someone be left out of that joy?
Townhall, a local restaurant, has BOMB vegan brownies. I was inspired and knew brownies had be the first vegan dessert recipe I created! I was nervous to dive into the world of vegan desserts, but these ended up being super yummy!
While researching the many different ways to make vegan brownies, I came across the following common ingredients:
- Vegan Butter
- Vegan Oils: Canola Oil, Avocado, etc.
- Black Beans
- Flax Eggs

I grew up on Aunt Jemima Coffee Cake! They no longer make this coffee cake in a bag, but it was a childhood favorite and family tradition!
