What is a girl to do with sour end-of-season oranges? What about two bags of them?
Well, with the help of a ton of sugar… several hours later… I had some really good Naval Orange Marmalade…
I used this recipe. I did not let the mixture sit overnight and it took about three hours of simmering at low heat.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day! What did you do for your mom to show her you love her?
This is a perfect little tart to show mom some love… Strawberry-Raspberry Vanilla Tart!

When the weekend roles around, I want real breakfast… Lately, I have been playing around cornmeal pancakes. It has taken awhile to determine the correct proportions and such but I think I may have a winner. I like to eat them with some raspberry jam. Happy Weekend!
(adapted from Cooking Light)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoon chopped walnuts
1 tablespoon butter
Combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt. Mix in the wet ingredients until just mixed. Stir in the walnuts. Heat the frying pan and melt the butter (you can use more butter if you wish but I’m trying to eat healthier). Pour any excess melted butter into the batter. Spoon a half of the batter onto the pan. Cook until the tops are covered with bubbles and the edges are cooked. Flip the pancake and cook until browned. Repeat with the rest of the batter.
