Apple Rose Tart
I’ve been experimenting Apple Rose Tarts of late. Ran across this idea while researching some new recipes, both for the next cookbook and to expand out the Chanticleer’s breakfast repertoire.
This tart pictured here is with a pecan-date crust using red delicious apples. It has appealing presentation, is very tasty, and is far more healthy than it looks. All three great criteria for a recipe.
There’s a catch however. When assembling these tarts, it does take a little time. It’s not difficult, but the time adds up if doing a tart times 12!
Thus apple rose tarts will be served when there are a few guests in the house. You will have a better chance to taste this tart if you stay on Sunday or Monday night, or during the low-season.
Comedy of Errors opens February 20 in the Thomas
Comedy of Errors, directed by Kent Gash, written (of course) by William Shakespeare, with Rodney Gardiner playing Dromio and Dromio, runs all season long starting February 20.
This play holds a warm place in my heart. Years ago (too many to count and tell) my twin sister and I attended this play on a double date. During the intermission, we changed shirts and switched dates. When some women in the ladies room questioned our quick change act, we defended the switch by saying, “Take twins to see Comedy of Errors, and what do you expect would happen?” The general consensus among the ladies was that the unwitting gentlemen asked for it.
Craterian Theater at the Collier Center presents Drew Carey

Kelly Joe Phelps — extraordinary Bluesman, Slide Guitarist
A writer at the San Diego Troubadour described guitarist and songwriter Kelly Joe Phelps as, “The Phantom Monk Of Folk– Blues,” and rightly so.
Over the past 17 years of recording and touring, Phelps has been talked about as much for his passionate, spirit-driven, lone musical ways as for the inventiveness of his playing and singing.
Listen to a song and then you’ll know you have to come.

THIS WEEKEND ONLY: Crater Lake’s East Rim Drive Opens for Non-Motorized Recreation

Hiking Grizzly Peak
One of my all time favorite hikes is up on Grizzly Peak. Northeast of Ashland, Grizzly Peak is the tallest peak viewable from the Chanticleer Inn.
This hike affords great sweeping views: From the car park view Mt. McLoughlin and on a clear day the peaks surrounding Crater Lake. Then from the trail, the entire Rogue and Bear Creek Valleys. Further west and south on the trail you can see Mt. Ashland, Emigrant Lake, Pilot Rock and Mt. Shasta.
The trail is about fairly easy, 5 miles round trip, some elevation gain but not at all difficult. Directions to the trail head.
The Flowers of Grizzly Peak are best part!
From spring to late summer, the flowers are too many to count and each kind is wonderful. Trail runs through forest, meadows and rocky outcrops: each area is packed with a variety of flowers. The blooms rotate through the entire season. One can hike Grizzly Peak every two weeks and see different bouquets.
