Carrot Cake

Another cooking project coming up. Dear husband said he loves carrot cake. Found this recipe. It looks like a lovely blog to subscribe to.


freezing tomatoes

Friday I bought a box of canner tomatoes from the farmers market. Since I don’t can, I will freeze them according to these directions. So glad they can be frozen with the skins on. Photo-1363

I decided I needed to make Tomato Bruschetta with some of these tomatoes 🙂

Here’s my work today on these tomatoes: Photo-1365frozen chopped tomatoes

preserved lemons

My next cooking project is preserving lemons. I have the lemons and the recipe so one of these days I will get going.

I finished this project on this 12th day of September.

Cut the lemons in quarters, but not clear through. This is how the Moroccans (tricky spelling this word) do it. Photo-1318 (1)

Now wait 3 or 4 days and add juice of 4 lemons. They are patiently waiting in the ‘fridge!

Sept. 17 – I’ve added the juice of 4 lemons. Photo-1361 Now it will sit in a cool place (the counter) for around a month or more. More will give it a better flavor, recipe says.
