There is a nice person at a place I frequent.
Always smiling and courteous.
So she deserved a homemade treat… A strawberry and almond frangipane tart.
And you know what? She smiled…and that made me smile.
And I thought it matched her hair…and she had two servings.
No better compliment at that.
Well, this former mechanic got his greasy hands back into the kitchen. No explosion, either.
Another Cathy Thomas Cooks recipe, it was relatively straight forward. Didn’t need a wrench. Please click on the link for the recipe (since people seem to be asking).
Small kitchen appliances are rather skimpy in my kitchen so I had to improvise – my coffee grinder in place of a food processor.
I did find the pie weights to be a great tool. Lucky I had some in my toolbox…not. Went out and bought a bag. You know – a guy thing. A tool for every job.
One of my best pals passed away so I made his widow a tart for Mother’s Day.
For the single guys out there… The gals at the office love it.
(Cathy Thomas has some neat recipes on her website, too!)
To help my friend’s mother celebrate her 90th birthday tomorrow, my little Brooke and I threw together a homemade Upside Down Apple Pie from scratch… Darned if it doesn’t smell GOOOOD… Not bad for an old mechanic and a young lady, eh?

Now who knows how to keep little hands off the darn thing until tomorrow?
