Walnut and Halvah Loaf — Foodie On Board

Sometimes one new ingredient can totally re-invent a classic recipe, such as what I have for you today! Adding halvah to this classic walnut loaf rockets it off to another level.

Lemon Meringue Pie — Simply Recipes

My grandmother Mae was notorious for her sweet tooth. How she lived to 97 on a diet that included daily jelly donuts I have no idea.

Well, it seems that food, like everything else on our planet, has fallen subject to fashion. Let’s face it, what was once fashionable to present at a dinner party, may no longer be so.
