In The Kitchen With Vera: Oh honey, bee happy




As the adventures with Vera continue as we approach the end of Season 10, who would have imagined me at a bee farm, fully decked out in a bee keeper’s suit and enjoying all the fruits of “those busy bees” labor! 

I learned so much about bees and the amazing use of every aspect of their work detail.

Getting started was fun in the Cottage with recipes associated with honey that were beautiful and delicious.  As always, our recipes are available on our website.  Search for Honeycomb Sponge Cake and Apple Tart, and you are well on your way with two winners!

BEE sure to get that young person in this kitchen soon to make some of these special dishes and possibly record the show that airs at 12:30 p.m. Thursday at WJBF-TV to watch with them just before making these two amazing desserts.

Take it one step further with doing the Charcuterie Cones, available on Amazon, to do something really attractive for a pool party this summer or any get together for that matter.

The part of this I actually like the most is that it’s everything you want right at your fingertips and very easy to eat.  Adding the attractive ribbon as Rebecca and her daughter, Trinity, did on the show, is just another level of elevation that I really loved.
