Mesquite Tart at Savor the Southwest

It is my day to post on the new Savor the Southwest blog and I am telling you how to make a delicious Mesquite Ginger  Tart with pears.  With mesquite millings happening all over Arizona, you’ll want some new ideas to use your mesquite meal.

So hop over to Savor the Southwest and get ready for that next potluck where everyone will be asking you for the recipe for this delicious cake.  And please click the follow button on the right so you won’t miss future posts from me, Carolyn Niethammer (on native plants and Southwest cooking),  Martha Burges ( on wild plants, Native agricultural crops and solar cooking)  and Tia Linda, (on bees, heritage chickens and eggs, and the joys and difficulties of raising grass-fed beef).


Honoring Bees on Day of the Dead

The first full post on the new blog Savor the Southwest was put up by beekeeper Tia Linda. As we celebrate Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), she discusses her altar that remembers all the bees that have died of colony collapse disorder.  Gorgeous photo of honeycomb.  Also a photo of a charming quilt honoring bees.
