On our journey around the world as part of our “Around the World in 12 Dishes” challenge, we reached India and our partners at Sleeping Bear Press (and no, this is not a sponsored post!) had a beautiful [...]
So after having Alex’ Russian apple sharlotka for our Russian meal for “Around the World in 12 Dishes” I was thinking, “that was good, we should redo it”, but differently. I like how the whole cake looks but once you cut it, you loose the look. So I figured we [...]
