A local bakery puts out samples of their newest creations each week. Premier Moisson in Montreal is a great bakery chain, offering French style breads with American efficiency. Most of their breads are good but this one was excellent. It is so simple but each bite of olive oil graced bread, topped with fresh summer tomatoes, big fat, pitted black olives, and slivers of onion is unbelievably, surprisingly incredible. Don’t make the mistake of thinking simple is not exciting. This bread is. It makes two small rounds.
I would serve this with salad or many cold salads, grilled chicken or salmon, or with hunks of different cheeses and slivers of procuitto or the spiciest, thinnest imported salami available.
Sun Tea is the old reliable of ice teas. You slow seep tea bags in a bottle of water and let the sun do it’s work. A few hours later, you have a mellow tea that you sweeten with sugar or honey, add a few lemons, pour over ice and you’ll all set. A Panama hat and a hammock is all you need. This doesn’t keep as well as boiling-water brewed tea but it’s also always gone in a day or two – such is the nature of a good quencher.
Everyone needs something easy, fruity, and a good keeping cake. This one works with any pie fillin but blueberry makes for a fabulous tasting and good looking cake. The crumb topping is just the perfect final touch.
Usually we think of apples when we think of an old-fashioned crisp but ripe, sweet autumn pears are wondrous in this dish. Just use rip flavorful pears such as Bosc or Anjou or a combination of a few pear varieties. A touch of cranberries brings some added to colour and a light touch of spice makes this a portrait in sensuous fall flavors.
This recipe makes two beautiful loaves- one to enjoy and one to give as a gift. Pure maple sugar and brown sugar make this heavenly. If you love sweet yeasted baking that is a cross between Danish and an upscale cinnamon bread, this will delight you. Leftovers (rare) make incredible French toast.
Shortcake by any other name, in any guise. This is so good; no wonder some 2500 people have downloaded this favourite BB recipe. Berries and a coating of Swiss chocolate on a buttery scone, aka rich, buttery shortcake base. This recipe is the bomb which explains why it is downloaded constantly. It has shades of country fair crossed with Black Forest Cake - Nothing but nothing is as fresh, decadent, and easy or crowd-pleasing as this cake.
Golden egg bread, coconut, golden raisins, cream and tart cherry sauce in a heart-warming autumn dessert, diner style with cornucopia flair.
Pecan or pumpkin biscuits would also be good here or thrown in a handful of toasted chopped pecans but plain, buttery baking biscuits in this pumpkin pie custard setting are divine.

Two English inventions (scones and nippy dry mustard such as Coleman's) come together quite nicely. Don't spare the cheese - measure a bit more and it's fine and don't spare the quality either. Opt for a flavorful, strong orange Cheddar. These scones are lofty, golden-crusted and buttery - pure heaven. Perfect with a good cuppa Breakfast tea or a fine Assam.
