It’s not that I don’t usually like the farmer’s market. We made a point of going several times during the past seasons. It’s just, if we missed 1 or 2 (or 3) in a row, it was no biggie… But this year has been different, though I couldn’t really tell you why… Maybe it’s because we’ve finally made a connection with some of the vendors. Maybe it’s because the market is making an effort to reach out to our vegan community with more than fancy lettuce and organic carrots… Whatever the reason, this season, I’m lovin’ our market and have missed it only once.

Applesauce cakes have been around for a long time. During WWI and WWII they were popular because they used less butter, sugar, and eggs than a typical cake.

I’m going to be honest, I’m a little nervous. After my two year hiatus, I’m having to refamiliarize myself with the WordPress program, my food photography skills are rusty, and just in general, I feel like a rookie… I wonder if this is how Guy Lafleur felt when he came out of retirement… But enough of my bellyaching, I want to show you my tart!
