Chai Spiced Apple “Samosas”

Apple Samosas

OK, so these aren’t “traditional” samosas.  But we used to make these little fellas or something like them at the restaurant for our New Year’s Eve dinner and they were a great hit.  They are a delicious dessert or a great addition to New Year’s Day breakfast.  And they can be made ahead of time and baked up fresh when you are ready to serve them.

Summer Fruit Crumble

Assembling the Fruit Crumble

Being gluten intolerant, my dessert of choice is usually some kind of fruit crumble (also known by names such as cobbler or brown betty, depending on where you come from).  In the fall, I make apple crumbles, in the spring I make rhubarb crumbles.  For guests this weekend in August, I branched out and used the seasonal fruits that have been flowing into my house lately and it was so good I wanted to share the recipe with you.

Is it organic or not?

CCOF certification

There is understandably a little bit of confusion among consumers around the differing kinds of certifications, use of the USDA and certifier seals and labeling.  I know I was confused when we started the process!  I thought I would blog a little about the different aspects of organic certification and what they mean.
