Afternoon Tea Party
(no ratings)

Except for the "Elevenses", Afternoon Tea is served between the hours of 3:00-6:00pm.

The later the hour determines the amount and type of foods served.

Establish and appreciate your own special tea time. Relax and refocus your attention from the cares of the world.

Think upon your blessings, things that are beautiful and pure. Recount the joys in your life.

Pour your cup of tea, sit back in your favorite chair, escape from the pressures of the day and enjoy your precious quiet time.

Asparagus Melt
(no ratings)

I don't make my own pesto sauce for this recipe. I just buy it pre-made commercially.
You can also scale down the calories by switching the sourdough to whole wheat bread, and using mustard instead of mayo.

Mini Apple Tarts
Very Good 4.3/5
(85 ratings)

Instead of a whole pie, try making bite-size tarts. The diminutive desserts cook quicker and are automatically portion controlled. Plus, they're easier to make for a crowd, and there's no need for a fork and plate.
