Don't judge a book by its cover. You may not know what's hidden inside. This is how I described my bake apple with cheesecake. Some might think that it's just another boring bake apple but some may find it interesting. For me it's simply intriguing with a lovely surprise in a baked apple...... cheesecake filling in a baked apple ! How COOL is that !
A moment with Jane
Colonel Brandon, the friend of Sir John, seemed no more adapted by resemblance of manner to be his friend, than Lady Middleton was to be his wife, or Mrs Jennings to be Lady Middleton's mother. He was silent and grave. His appearance however was not unpleasing, in spite of his being in the opinion of Marianne and Margaret an absolute old bachelor, for he was on the wrong side of five and thirty; but though his face was not handsome his countenance was sensible, and his address was particularly gentlemanlike.
