  1. This sounds great - love the title - I've always associated scalloped with milk so this was a good lesson for me.

  2. Scalloped Raisins and apples should keep you nice and warm. If not come over to my blog and get some Apple Charlotte.

  3. I am so very tired of cold rain and storms! Your recipe does sound like a lovely warm way to ride it out....I bet it will smell great, too!
