CORNMEAL AND LEMON TORTE

I love the flavor of corn as well as lemon so this was something I really wanted to figure out. A small wedge of this torte is a great finish for many dinners.  I was inspired by a recipe from Sunset magazine that I came across quite a few years ago. I wanted to make something with that flavor profile but with a stronger lemon flavor. I also added some minced rosemary to give it a bit of a bite. You could use some minced lemon balm instead of or in addition to the rosemary.  CLICK HERE FOR THE ENTIRE RECIPE

ORANGE SPICED NUTS

Especially good with a glass of something in the late afternoon or after dinner, these easy-to-make spiced nuts are better than anything available at the store. I  was inspired by Ina Garten’s take on spiced nuts and came up with the following recipe.  I like it with Harvest Legacy, an apple brandy blended with cider that is made by Swanson’s Mountain View Distillery in the Bitterroot Valley.  Look for something similar in your area.
