Apples - THE fall fruit



Baked Apples
   I have great memories of working with apples as a kid.  My grandmother had a few apple trees on her property.  I was often called on to help my father pick them, pack them in bushels, and tractor them up to the house.  And yes, I loved driving the tractor.  The apple juice we got from those apples is something I really miss - maybe I'll try to make that next!

Eggplant Made Rich



Moussaka 
     I turned to the greeks for inspiration in trying to come up with my next eggplant recipe.  And boy did they deliver!  My sister always loved moussaka, but I always stuck to eggplant parmigiana.....until now!  It is a labor of love - I will forewarn you.  When you smell the aroma of nutmeg scented eggplant in the house on a crisp fall day you will be yearning to sink your teeth into this bubbling golden casserole.
