These are some of the things C. Flynt has been up to, some of our personal lives, some reviews of things we've read, some stuff we've learned.

The blogs are organized by date.

Comments will appear when we've had time to check them. Apology for the inconvenience, but it's a way to keep phishers and spammers off the page.

The second Bard and Sigurd novel has survived a run through our critique group.

Being young men, Bard and Sigurd have appetites. They pay attention to food, so there is a fair amount of food mentioned in the book.

Their meals range from dried fish to banquets. Early in the story they visit a monastery and are honored with sweets.

I found a recipe for a Saxon style Apple Walnut cookie on the net and adopted it a bit.

1 cup dried apples 2 cups walnuts 2 tbs honey 4 eggs 2 tbs flour

Chop the apples and walnuts into small bits and mix in the eggs, honey and flour.

I put the whole mess into a food processor (I like the Chef's Rival chopper), and whirr until it looks reasonable.

Place the mixture on a greased baking pan in roughly 2-tablespoon clumps and bake for 15 min at 375 degrees (F).

The traditional recipe does not use flour. I think a little flour makes it hold together better.
