Raspberry Champagne Cake

This is the third one I have done.  I called this one "Raspberry Beret" Champagne Cake, in memory of Prince.  I have another one in the works, and it will be served on Christmas day.

Three Ladies

This is one brand of rice I buy in Asheville.  You can get it at one of the Asian markets.  I usually go to Kim's Oriental Food and Gifts.

More Caramel Cakes

For Thanksgiving I made a caramel cake, using the same Southern Living recipe I like.  A few days after Thanksgiving, I made a second caramel cake.  I gave most of it to my friends.  This second one I had some orange zest.

the one for Thanksgiving

and then this one

Kai Cha Om

Acacia Shoot Omelets

I made this after our most recent return from Thailand.  I got the Acadia at an Asian market in Asheville.

Thai Dessert (FROZEN)

If you live near an Asian market and you want to try a traditional Thai coconut dessert, you can go that route. They're tasty this way, but if you grew up eating them like I did or if you have traveled to Thailand, it's another level.

Cherries anyone?

Cherries are in season.  They have been very good, or so-so.  When they are good, they are really good.  Serve them up on some Blue Ridge china or in a silver bowl!
