Thank you for your lovely Tasha Tudor entry.

And sigh, our tomatoes are green still tooo. Methinks we will have Fried Green Tomatoes this year, for the first time. :-)

Gentle hugs,

I love love blackberries, tarts and turnovers, and Tasha Tudor. What a wonderful post!

Those tarts and turnovers look yummy and they are so lovely. Tasha certainly had her own way, didn't she. I admire it.


Isn't it wonderful to see Tasha everywhere today. By the way, we have been wanting to make hand pies. I LOVE your, we will try them. Thank you xoxoxo Clarice


My tomatoes are still green, too. Your blackberry filling recipe is one I'm definitely going to try. I've made jam and have tons of berries in the freezer for cobblers and such, but the turnovers will be a special treat.



I live in the south. I have been putting up peach & pear preserves, and pear butter. I have plenty of blueberries in the freezer that I picked this year. Your filling recipe looks so good! I will try it with my blueberries. The tarts and turnovers you made make my mouth water just to looking at them! Oh dear Tasha, she is truely missed!

I work plenty hard in my garden...but love every moment!

we have apples and pears that almost ready.


This entire post is a recipe for bliss... even if I never get around to doing anything you've suggested, I feel better just thinking of it. Thank you.

Oh wow! The pastries look so good. Everyone is posting food and it is lunch time and I am hungry!

I love the little picture of the berry pickers, very sweet!


Your blackberry tarts look delicious!
Wonderful Tasha Tudor post :-)


Yummy, these look delish. And I will take two lumps of sugar in my tea with a spot of milk. Thanks for the recipe.


Your turnovers and tarts look delightful. Now to hunt the country for a neglected blackberry patch!

I was also curious where you found that Tasha quote. I don't think I've seen that one before...thanks!


I think summer is ending early here too. Those turnovers look delicious.


I'll have a turnover, thank you.

I will stop by the Farmer's Market tomorrow and pick up some more berries to give your 'receipt' (as Tasha would say!) a try. It looks scrumptious! We've got a few family birthdays in August as well! We're celebrating Tasha Tudor day over at The Christmas Corgi too. Stop by and say hello! Warmly, Cathy ^..^


What a wonderful tribute to Tasha Tudor and a delightful recipe. A very happy birthday to all your family members celebrating a birthday.


What a beautiful blog you have. This post is so delightful and inspiring, it makes me want to savor the last bit of summer. My tomatoes are still green too:(


Those blackberry turnovers look so scrummy. I could just eat one now.


Thank-you so much for this post! I love pastries and I know these will be visiting my oven very soon!

Those heart tarts are adorable!


Oooh, I'm catching up on my blog reading and I wanted to say thanks for sharing this! Those little hearts look divinely tasty!

Also, I never knew that Tasha Tudor and I share a birthday. Such fun!
