This date and walnut loaf is sugar-free, and I must say, I was surprised at how flavorful this bread is. You won’t even miss the sugar. I toasted some in the morning for breakfast and it was delicious!
The Thirteenth Tale is the story of Vida Winter, a prolific writer with a mysterious past. She commissions a young writer named Margaret to pen her story, the “Thirteenth Tale”. Mrs. Winter tells the story of Angelfield, an avoided house that was home to spooky twin girls that terrorized the village. The manor was run by their father, a recluse that never got over the unconventional love he had for his sister. Mrs. Winter’s tale, along with Diane Setterfield’s intriguing writing, will draw you in as you are told the stories of Angelfield and its inhabitants.

“With exquisite detail and flawless pacing, Juliet is a multi-layered tapestry of Julie’s present and Giulietta’s 14th-century past, where families, generations apart, are still at each other’s throats.

After all, if Julie is Giulietta, then where art thou, Romeo?” – Jamie Ford, author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

In “My Name is Mary Sutter”, they usually drank the whiskey straight, but sweetening it up a little makes it more enjoyable for me.
The reason for the funky name for this recipe is that when I started, my intention was to make a lemon pie. When it was done my husband took a taste and said “this tart is really good.” Oh, yes….tart.
