I’ve been making little summer cakes all summer long, and one I especially wanted to make was the famous Original Plum Torte by Marion Burros of the New York Times. The Times published this recipe every year from 1983 to 1989 and pledges every year the recipe will be available to all. The more I thought about, though, the more I wanted to forgo the plums and adapt the recipe. So here it is, the Original Blackberry Torte.
It must be a really good year for blueberries and I swear I’ve made a ton of blueberry desserts – some with success, some not. This Blueberry Nectarine Buckle was perfect (even if the pics aren’t the greatest) and just loaded with fruit.
Slow cooked to perfection, this fall off the bone, tender pork was featured in “Slow Cooker Redeemed” in the New York Times. “It results in a vaguely Vietnamese tangle of pulled pork that is best accompanied by a bright and crunchy slaw, and served on warm flour tortillas…” I made you wait for Vaguely Vietnamese Slow Cooker Pork Tacos, yesterday when I posted the Vaguely Vietnamese Slaw recipe, and I think these Tacos are worth that little delay.
