Lemons, Orange slices, dried fruit, tea – oh my – this is quite the compote. I serve it in a big glass dish and it is a lovely tradition of tea-infused dried fruits. In case you don't want superb Passover baking as your dessert, there is this lighter fare.

Golden egg bread, coconut, golden raisins, cream and tart cherry sauce in a heart-warming autumn dessert, diner style with cornucopia flair.

This paprika tinged cottage cheese spread depends on dry cottage cheese, aka hoop or baker’s cheese. If you cannot find it, drain ricotta or fine curd cottage cheese overnight through a paper-towel lined sieve set over a bowl. You can also use cream cheese but it is not quite the same but still very, very good. Montreal had a restaurant called the Pam Pam, known for lavish coffees, nut and cream filled cakes and these simple, but good sandwiches. Very few elements and yet – this is a memorable sandwich. People also use this filling as a dip.

How come you are so slim ? is what most pastry chefs want to hear. How I manage that is based on another one of my own creations (and it's not a cookie), the most sane diet I know and the only one that works!

Fried hotdogs? So good you’ll not want to share the technique. Score one of those super-sized kosher dogs. Deep fry (if you are baking French Fries – pop a couple of these in the oil). The dogs flare up and bulk in size – offering a crisp exterior and hot, juicy interior. Ballpark mustard, a fresh poppy seed roll and you’ve got game. A super 4th of July snack.

Nothing out of a box can touch this.I like the combination of Havarti and orange cheddar for this or use Monterey Jack and cheddar. A toasty, buttery crumb topping makes this cafeteria style classic. This reheats like a charm, freezes well but is sublime, fresh and bubbling from the oven with a green salad and grilled hot spiced sausages and Dijon mustard. Did I tell you it even helps you build strong bones? If you are out of breadcrumbs, use soda cracker crumbs.

A pastry bag does quick work of filling casings. You can also make this into sausage patties, fry what you need and freeze the rest. Then prepare what you need for your own breakfast sandwiches at home (sans drive thru). Although this is primarily turkey meat, it uses some chicken and veal but all turkey is fine too.

This is slick and sumptuous. Five minutes of your time, no candy thermometer and just rave reviews. You can also stir in chunks of Oreo cookies, a jar of marshmallow cream, dried cherries. dollops or dulce de leche, or chunks of mint chocolate.

 

These are lickity split to make but wonderful, served with chilled salmon or turkey.

If measures and precision were not part of recipe writing or too-zealous bakers (who forget it's not about the measure, it's about the heart of the matter..), how would this baker write the perfect recipe for an Old-Fashioned Apple Pie? Easy as pie....you write from the heart and true spirit of the baker. It's pie recipes as they really should be written.....for the recipe that goes with this tribute, visit Old Fashioned Apple Pie.
