I will be sending the book and photos to the publisher this weekend.  Will begin work on the cover the next week and then that will go to them.  As soon as that is done and I proof the book it will be ready to print.  Hang in there everyone it won't be long now.  Thanks again for all the support I have been getting from everyone.

My daughter Linda and I are going to plan a book signing in LA sometime in the summer.  I hope everyone in that area will attend and get their book that day.

More to come.

I am already compiling recipes for a new book.

Hi everyone.  I hope you are all hanging in there with me.  Just a few more pictures to take and the book will FINALLY be off to the publisher.  In the meantime I have been developing a lot of new recipes for the next book.  I will begin to put them on the blog soon.

Here is a recipe that is wonderful for a weekend brunch or anytime you want to spice things up for your family.  I just made it this weekend.  Yummy!

6 servings

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 10 inch springform pan with butter

2 tablespoons of butter
2 apples
1 tablespoon of sugar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
8 large eggs
1 3/4 cups of ricotta cheese

Slice the apples in half and core them with a melon baller.  Cut the slices from each half (so you have whole slices of apples that lay flat, about 3 from each half of apple)

In a saucepan, melt the butter and the sugars over low heat.  Add the the cinnamon.  Cook just until it is bubbly.  Add the apple slices and cook just for about one minute.  Use a spatula to remove them.

In a bowl whip the eggs.  Add the cheese and about 1/4 tsp salt.  Add the nutmeg.  Pour into buttered pan and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes.  Remove from the oven and top with the apple slices overlapping just a bit to make a nice pattern.  Pour any juice over the top.

Bake until done, about 15 minutes more.  Remove from the oven and let it cool for about 10 minutes.
Remove the side of the springform pan and cut into slices and serve.

A little different Frittata!  Yummy!

Thanks for stopping in today
