    The apple tart looks delicious. A good cup of coffee and a piece of that tart looking over your lake…Life would be good. I can see why you like living a bit away from the sidewalks.
    Glad to know the bird is okay. I would be runing around like a maniac with the bird in the livingroom (laugh).
    Very nice blog post!

    Your tart looks delicious! I too live far from city amenities, about 90 minutes, but without your amazing views. If I ever move back to the city, I’ll miss the quiet. Though it’d be nice to grab a dinner to go that wasn’t from Sonic.

    I’d totally take the misty lake-side view over the bakeries & cafes. Thanks for sharing that.

    Mmm, I’d take some of that tart too!

    As a member of the “family” that had the extreme honour of tasting this amazing apple treat, I have to say that the Guilty Kitchen outdid itself. It was, in simple terms, one of those most delicious desserts I’ve had in a long time. It also helps that I was able to sample the caramel before it was melted down. ;) It’s the perfect dish for this time of year- warm, sweet and rich.

    I never realized how well apples and sweetened cream cheese go together until the most recent Daring Cooks challenge. This tart seems like an amped up version of that, I love that it’s pretty heavy on the apples.

      I just joined the Daring Cooks so I’m not familiar with which dish you are referring to? Surely not the Pho which was the latest dish.

    I lived in a Pacific Northwest mountain town of 900. Our nearest store was about a half hour drive. It was wonderful and I so prefer it to the big city suburb I’m living in now. My windows there faced no other houses, just national forest and wildlife. I could sit by the window and watch snow fall for hours. It was a very peaceful and introspective way to live, one I hope and pray to return to very soon.

    I lived in the middle of nowhere when I was in elementary/middle school and loved it–we had 48 acres–no view like yours, but some great huge oak and pine trees, plus all the space to run and play. I miss the quiet and the dark, but convenience is nice too. Your tart is gorgeous, thanks for sharing.

    What a beautiful post and recipe. British Columbia is such a dreamy place. I love it there. Thanks for the photos and the reminder that I need to get back to the Pacific Northwest someday.

    And, I hope that cute little birdie comes back to visit often.

    I like the way you set up your blog, subjects in between your post. The way you shot those mouth watering foods makes it more convincing for us to read in between lines.

    What a brilliant post. You should do a series! :)I did a sort of blogging for dummies over on one of the craft forums and I thought it was too simple for them, but the amount of emails I got asking questions just like what you addressed was unbelievable. As young people today we have grown up with computers, but it’s easy to forget that even people just a few years older have not! Really good post! :)

    Hello. I wanted to give you a note to verbalize my thankfulness. I have been watching your blog posts for a month and have got a ton of excellent tips and appreciated the way you have built your web site. I’m going to make my blog however I feel it is too general and I need to concentrate more on particular issues.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely can i encounter a blog that’s the two educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail over the head. Your idea is actually utstanding; the issue is a factor that not enough people are generally speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that stumbled across this around my search for something relating to this.

    I stumbled upon your photo of the lake while searching for a photo like it and was wondering if I could obtain permission for use but not direct resale in a background image for a product that I am creating. It is just for my small business but would make a great addition. Please reply at my email. Thank you.
