So. You are probably wondering – HEY, what happened to you? Did you stop loving food? Nope. But, I did get the flu. In November. Does this count as my flu shot? I hope so. Because too many things are coming up: Like ski season! And Thanksgiving! I can’t get the flu again later in the winter.
Speaking of which, before I got sick I was invited to Joe’s family Thanksgiving, and asked to bring some sort of food. Well, since I love sweets, Joe suggested I bring pies. I happyly agreed. (I love baking pie!) He suggested I bring two kinds: one traditional, and one of my specialties (aka, something more creative). That got me thinking – what should that be? I don’t want to bring anything too out there. The answer? This torte! It’s so delicious, and seriously easy to make. So as I drive myself bonkers trying to figure out the other perfect dish to my future in-laws, I at least know I’ve got one that’s easy – and ready to impress some taste buds!
