Oh the good old summertime! We have been enjoying lots of cherries, watermelon and blueberries this year. Nothing beats fresh fruit I think, and it is so healthy for us. My daughter just emailed me our flan recipe which I had misplaced. Its a family favorite and so delish! Want to try one? We do use a flan pan, you could probably use a pie pan though..just push the dough up the sides about a half-inch.


1/4 cup butter/or marg...softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tea vanilla
2/3 cup flour
dash salt

Mix and spread evenly into a greased and floured flan pan. Bake about 14 minutes (350 degrees) or until cake is golden and springs back when touched. Cool and then turn out of pan.

3 Tablespoons of sugar
2 Tablespoons of Flour
2 egg yolks
1/2 cup milk

Mix together in saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly until thickened. Remove from heat and cool. Then spread on the cake (which is like a shell)..evenly. Now cover the top of the filling with whatever fruit you have on hand. Kiwi slices, blueberries, strawberries,some of several. I make 1-1/2 batches of filling. One of our VERY favorite desserts.

By the way, I put that puzzle back in the box unfinished, I figured my time was more valuable than the 99 cents we paid at Good Will for that pretty thing. I've done hard puzzles before but I'm going to steer clear of Irish landscapes from now on...lol.

Well hello here Maggie Ann! I think I'll go ahead and try your recipe one of these days soon, and I'll publish pictures when I do. We too are relishing all the delicious watermelon, cherries, and strawberries this year. Sam's has had cherries (which are normally over the roof in cost) for less than $5 for a big box. LOVE 'em! Watermelon is a staple here in the summer. We've been eating a lot of salads, too. Been avoiding meat and feel much better for it. Hope all is well!

Hello Maggie Ann,

First, let me thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such nice refreshing comments.

The recipe sounds quite yummy. And I agree with you this is the time of the year to be eating all the fresh fruit and veggies. We had an ear of corn with lunch today, it was very tasty. And our dessert ... Cherries, just ate them with the pit and all, of course we didn't really eat the pits, but they were as fresh as we could get them. And yes we were eating watermelon this week also. As well as grapes , blueberries and strawberries. I love this time of the year. BTW, I like to crochet, I don't know much about knitting. Oh, well, just thought I would throw that in. ;)
