Apples & Thyme ~ a celebration of mothers and grandmothers and time spent with with them in the kitchen

Just a reminder to submit your entries for our Apples & Thyme event. Inge and I normally ask for entries by the 10th of each month, but have extended the deadline this month to the 15th. Seems that everyone, including us, is getting a slow start this year. So, please, search your memory banks for recollections of time spent in the kitchen with your mothers, grandmothers, or whoever influenced you in relation to food. Share pictures, recipes and stories. Keep those old traditions alive with us here at Apples & Thyme!

On a personal note, I am off to New York for some meetings and a little fun for the rest of the week. I'll be back on Monday with Passionate Mondays!

Well, New York. Too bad I didn't know...we could have met up. That would have been fun ;)

I am hoping I can participate this month.

Buon Viaggio Jeni!!

I was always kept out of the kitchen - everyone's - for fear I'd "make a mess"! I do, however, remember the wonderful smells that emanated from my grandfather's kitchen - he did all the cooking - his freshly baked bread has a smell that still tickles my memory to this day.

Absolute - Oh, I love it, a grandpa that cooked!
