Sleepless in Seattle

I knew I was in trouble when the car wouldn’t start and Tuesday With Dorie Chocolate-Banded Ice Cream Torte was just sitting chilled solid frozen in the cold pack waiting to return from the beach and back to the city.

Hours later and a busy week, no time to create a new torte. Getting ready for the semi-annual trip to visit the in-laws in San Diego. But first stop was a jam packed weekend in Seattle to see a couple of Mariners games….

and for me a visit Pike Place Market, the oldest farmers market, eat Malpec oysters, and wild Alaskan salmon.

Zen Cookie

My son returned from summer camp in Maine. Each year, he gets a welcome home sandcastle cake. This year the cake was Dorie's Mocha-Walnut Marbled Bundt Cake. More about that another time.

The Tuesdays With Dorie recipe was Granola Grabbers.

Chewy like my mom's oatmeal cookies

Perfect with a glass of milk.
