Month: June 2009

  • Cherry Bakewell Tartelettes With Cherry Pit Ice Cream Milkshakes

    June has definitely been a strange month starting by my baking the latest Daring Bakers challenge the first week it was revealed. That has not happened in almost two years but there are too many work deadlines this month to monkey around with all forms of important business. Work and Daring Bakers that is. These […]

  • Gone Fishing!

    I had a feeling I ought to put a “Gone Fishing” sign on this page last monday and leave you to meet my beta, Elliott instead of pacing my hotel room trying to find a good internet signal. I also did not realize that our schedule of eating and meeting wonderful people here would leave […]

  • Strawberry and Rhubarb Pate De Fruit

  • Indian Cardamom Mava Cakes

    Many days of the week, I wish I could just call up my friend Bina to come and have tea or coffee with me. I know my afternoons have never been sweeter as since she shared her Mava Cakes recipe with us. I am very fond of a little tea break and I am very […]
