Soufflé was the word of the day this past Sunday, and what a delightful word! A light, tall, fluffy lovely cheese soufflé--one of my mother's best--greeted Bertie and me as this week's "Treat of the Week." It was joined by fresh broccolini, crunchy potatoes and onions, a crusty, cheesy, casserole of mushrooms. Hooray for 2014 thus far! The soufflé even had two babies. Aren't they cute? They look just like their mama.
Afterwards, we tried something new. For Christmas, my mother had been given a "Personal Pie Maker," which, in essence, makes four wee pies at once. Of course, my mother made her own pie crust and apple pie filling with raisins, but the little machine did a very nice job. The results are below. There are a variety of personal pie makers on the market. I don't actually recall the brand of "Personal Pie Maker" that this one was, but, if you're in the market for such a thing, I'm sure you can find one to suit your personal pie making needs.
