Cake days

It may be February but it is not too early to begin testing recipes for Forage and Harvest. With more than 400 on the cards, it's going to be interesting! And I need to rally neighborhood friends as potential guinea pigs. We will not be able to eat everything.

It has been the week of coughs, here at Chez Possum (yes, the possums are still around). First I went down with Trump Flu, then the poor Frenchman was felled, despite all precautions taken. In all the time I have known him he has never taken a sick day from work. Now he has taken two. Even as he coughs and sweats he works. Yes, I tried. Nothing I can do except drown him in thyme tea.

Above, a spicebush and apple cake, dense, moist, good food for cold days. And we have been promised some snow! At last.



  1. it sounds like you may be getting SNOW!!! best stock up on all the necessities ... like vodka! hope all will feel better soon.

  2. Hi, Marie: What is Forage and Harvest? A new book, I hope. Still begin each month by glancing at 66 Square Feet's entry for recipe and gardening tips -- a ritual, of sorts.

    1. Hi Susan, yes! New book http://66squarefeet.blogspot.com/2017/02/forage-and-harvest-book.html

      So glad you still enjoy 66 Square Feet - A Delicious Life!

  3. Camomile tea and honey works for us for coughing

  4. Perhaps a neighborhood bake sale to get rid of the extra cake? I for one would stand in line for a taste ! Mmmm...

    1. Great idea. But in allergy-prone young-family neighborhood in litigious North America...I wonder.
