No-Cook Blueberry Mousse


Something a little different for Passover.  Normally I'd make this dessert with strawberries, (especially since they are on sale this week at the Try-n-Save) but I had frozen blueberries taking up valuable space in the freezer and because, why not?

Treacle Tart - The Closest Thing I Had to a Pie for Pi Day


Saturday March 14 is Pi Day.  For those who aren't geeks, Pi Day is so named because March fourteenth 2015 AD (in the US) can be written numerically as 3/14/15.  Pi written out to 4 decimals is 3.1415.  While such an auspicious occasion can normally be overlooked by even geeks such as me, this particular Pi Day is unique enough that (because of my usual non-planning and hadn't made anything more pie-ish than pizza)  I felt it necessary to search for a stash of not-yet-shared pie photos and write something semi-poetic around it.  Luckily I never got around to posting this deliciously sweet British tart.  "What's the difference between a pie and a tart?" you might ask, Dear Reader.  While there are a few minor ones, the main diff is that tarts have straight up-down sides, while pie sides slope.  

But I digress ...  why will this particular Pi Day astound you?

Creamy Carrot Bisque


I thought a bisque was just a smooth, creamy soup.  But I just finished researching (and by reasearching I mean googling) and discovered that a bisque is defined as a smooth creamy soup made with shellfish.    So this vegetarian-friendly starter really should have been named Bisque-esque.
