Everyone's desserts look amazing! The baking bug hit me this weekend - blueberry hand pies (recipe from King Arthur) and banana chocolate chip cake - wonderful recipe from Baking with Dorie Goldspan - delicious (I added the chocolate chips). Thanks for looking!

(Sorry if the pictures come out too large!)

Made some mini tarte tatins, which came out great. Served with a rocher of vanilla ice cream, but the kitchen was way too hot to play around with ice cream photography.

Thank you,

I made it in a small tin I found in a kitchenware store. First pre-poached apples in caramel/butter/apple juice, sliced them in 4 pieces, put the pieces in the tin on top of some butter and sugar. Finally added some rolled out puff pastry on top.

Inspired by a recent trip to San Francisco where I devoured delicious fruit tartlets at Frog Hollow Farm bakery, last weekend I made a couple of rustic tarts that I brought to picnics. Peach, and my favorite one (photo) which was nectarine-apricot.

Not using a tart pan is liberating. It makes the whole process so much faster.

Thanks. Might work well with flan rings, too.

Not a totally appropriate place to post this - as I didn't make or bake it - however they were made by eG's Alleguede at Ma Maison in Etobicoke.

It was my pleasure to visit Rodney and Jess at their home the other night - and I came away with these two wonderful cakes -

Chocolate and hazelnut - I got a small taste before hubby tucked away the rest for his enjoyment.

Coconut and red fruit that I believe included strawberry - I enjoyed the lions share of this one - although I did take a couple of nice slices over to my father today - who at 94 has given in completely to his sweet tooth.

Kerry, those cakes are stunners!

Oatmeal chocolate chip are my favourite cookies, so I gave Deb's recipe from Smitten Kitchen a go and it was pretty darn good. I appreciate that she uses twice as many oats as flour. Mind the poor ribbon job haha. I was trying to make it cute for a lady friend :)

I was doing a lot of no-bake cookies over the summer because my kitchen gets HOT (south-facing). I'm really happy to see the weather turning a bit cooler now so I can get back to using my oven. I have tons of recipes bookmarked that I'm dying to try out. I did manage to sneak a few in on some cooler days though.

I made Martha Stewart's Lemon Poppyseed Crisps. These are amazingly lemony, with both zest and reduced lemon juice. Seriously, they have all the flavour of a lemon tart. If you like lemon? Give these a shot.

I also made these Milk Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies. The name is a bit of a fake-out because there's dark chocolate in there too. The nuts are both ground & mixed with the flour, and chopped, so these cookies really taste like macadamia.

I've made a few other things too, but I was having some issues with my website and am behind on posting. Just playing catch-up now.

I recently made this recipe - Celery ice cream, Greek yogurt microwave sponge cake, gin gelee, macerated cucumbers, celery-black pepper glass, Greek yogurt. While it sounds strange, it was actually quite good. One of the better microwave sponge cakes I've made. For the glass I used Purcote b790 with some celery juice, fructose, and black pepper (instead of the isomalt tuile in the recipe).
