Washington Cherry Upside-Down Cake

Washington Cherry Upside-Down Cake

Oh my. Cherry Upside-Down Cake. You really must taste it.

People often ask me – “why ‘Food for a Year’? Do you make meal plans? Do you show people how to store up enough food for a year?”….  I think this recipe a good way to answer that question. Our years are filled with traditions, seasons, celebrations, travel, schedules, work, monotony and once-in-a-lifetime moments. And this Cherry Upside-Down Cake blends several of these into one gorgeous, memorable dessert.

While on our recent stay in Washington State (Orcas Island to be exact), my friend, Angie, joined us for several days. It just so happened that her stay was during our shared birthday week — which can only mean one thing :: cake. (more…)

Fresh Washington Apple Crisp w/ Cinnamon Streusel Biscuit Crust

Fresh Washington Apple Crisp w/ Cinnamon Streusel Biscuit Crust

While in Washington, it didn’t take me long to notice we arrived right in the middle of apple season. At almost every turn, I saw apple trees with branches bowing at the weight of large, brightly colored apples. I had to force myself not to pull over and pick a pie’s worth of apples. I did pull over and knock on a few doors, hoping the home owner would give me permission to buy some of their apples ((no one came to the door — and I know they were home)). Thankfully, I eventually came across a roadside stand with freshly picked apples for sale, and with that – I was well on my way to making the best apple crisp of my life. (more…)

Orcas Island Wild Plum Streusel

Orcas Island Wild Plum Streusel

Thanks to a wild ((or at the very least aged, unfettered & prolific)) plum tree and the kind-hearted generosity of my friend, Orcas Island potter, Mr. Weatherman, I have the pleasure of sharing this simple sour plum streusel. I went to visit Mr. Weatherman and his Olga Pottery shop during our second day on the island. His place is always a favorite stop of mine because of his beautiful pottery, his friendly conversation and his gracious accommodation of my “bubbly” herd. (more…)
