On a lighter note, I'm sad to have missed several opportunities to share tasty recipes during this season of so much good food! But never to fear, I'll post some of the best ones when I get a chance, including Ina's chocolate cake, a tangy homemade vanilla frozen yogurt, and a smashing apple-pear-cranberry crisp (also by Ina. go figure.). (All pictured below, thanks to a trusty camera-phone.)
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
