Confections and confessions

Travel was sometimes a feast! For my camera, at least…I never had room after the main course. Well…almost never. I did eat a chocolate cupcake in Hong Kong, but I didn’t take a picture!

Hopefully this will inspire you to make dessert. Today I am going to make two apple pies from the amazing harvest that awaited us upon our return from worldwide travel.

Dining in Australia, 1

My first meal in Australia. Bambinis serves meals and coffee for take-away or to enjoy on the sidewalk, which we did, while trying to blink ourselves awake. This is a poached egg. They must have poached it in a cheesecloth bag. Avocado, spinach, lemon, slivered sea salt and rye toast made it the perfect breakfast.

This is my new favorite kind of coffee. It’s called a Flat White.
