Pirate decided to make his own Pumpkin Cheesecake today. He didn't want to wait for me to do it for him. So I stood by and answered any questions he might have had. He got a little thrown by the fact that the recipe said "for a 9 inch springform pan." Mine is 10 inches.

Right now it is in the oven and he says he will let it cool until tomorrow. We'll see how long that statement holds up.

He does look happy! What a cute pic, with the candle in the scone. Happy birthday, Himself.

Himself looks extremely happy!


I so wish I could eat bread at times, especially a good rye. Lovely loaf!

I assumed you knew what it meant. I doubt most Americans find it funny, though. And you don't speak for Americans - just for yourself.

When I had the GS Troop, I also volunteered (like an idiot) to hold the cupboard for the cookie sales. Spike fell in love with the Swiss Chalet. So I found a recipe with just three ingredients for the shortbread cookies. It will be his Christmas present this year. I will make the dough and keep it in the freezer until next month. I already have the chocolate and other equipment needed to make them.

Had some fantastic Honey Crisp apples so decided to make an apple pie. Omigosh, I think it's going to be wonderful.

Used this recipe and, from the aroma coming from the oven, I think it'll be a winner.

I just tested the link to the recipe and was notified that they're having "issues." If you want to search for the recipe another way, just ask for "One-Crust Apple Pie" at cookeatshare.com.

Also, have to share our apple peeler with you. It's like a toy and I almost wish I'd had more apples. It peels apples cleanly and quickly. I timed myself this time. It took right at 30 seconds to peel 4 large apples. It's also very easy to clean.

Love, love, love it and I loaned it to my younger brother a couple of years ago and he flipped. Bought him one for the following Christmas and he's as giddy as a child peeling apples.

Also, loaned it to a foodie friend who promptly bought himself one.

I should work for the company.

If you are so inclined, here's what I'm talking about.

I have gone through two all metal apple peelers over the years. I have used mine for peeling pears and even peaches. Although I wasn't too thrilled with the peaches. I also have the apple slicer that will give me 16 slices instead of the usual eight. Although it is very difficult for me to slice Granny Smith apples with it. I usually have Pirate do it for me.

For Thanksgiving I promised my daughter not only her pumpkin cheesecake, but also an apple pie. This time I got smart. No Granny Smith apples. A much easier apple to slice up. Macoun (?) apples.

Today I made the three ingredient Scottish Shortcake Cookie dough. Right now the dough is in the freezer waiting for the big day to arrive.
