Those look so yummy! I like that you can freeze them. Lounging and reading sounds wonderful!


I've been meaning to try this recipe.
I recieved my latest dishtowel patterns in the mail this week, thank you very much! Any suggestions on where to buy good towels worth embroidering on?
And last but not least, you are very missed, but now that I know why, I can be patient:)

This looks like something we would enjoy! ♥


Those look very tasty. I love cookbooks too. My favorites are anything by Naomi Duguid and Jeffrey Alford. Right now I am working my way through their Home Baking and also Mangoes and Curry Leaves. A group of us are taking one of their books, each make two or three items and them have a big party. Such fun. We may do that with Julia Child's French Cooking next.


i think i shall have to make some - perfect for lunchboxes. that little joy starts tomorrow for me with my 2 going back to the books for the year!


They look like little bursts of flavor! I, too, love reading cookbooks -- a carryover from my childhood really. Some of my favorites are The Joy of Cooking; The Moosewood Cookbook; Sundays at Moosewood Restaurant; and Betty Crocker Cookie Book.

Warm wishes,


I just printed out the recipe, Vicki. Thank you. I think these will be a nice treat to have on hand for the days when my friends drop in to craft. We've been getting together once a month for that, and taking turns with the food.

I hope you are all enjoying a lovely start to February.



I was looking for something to make for my Bunco group...we meet one morning a month and share breakfast first...thank you. I will tell them where I found the recipe.
Memories With Food At Gipsy House by Felicity & Roald Dahl is my all time favorite cookbook it has great recipes that always work and it is also good reading. It was published in 1991, Amazon still has some copies.
As you know Roald Dahl was the Writer of Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.


i love cookbooks too! i have some of the ones you mentioned, as i was in love with country french cooking for a while. my tyler florence cookbooks are may favorites, everything i have tried out of them, came out delicious.

I enjoy reading cookbooks and trying out new things and revisiting old favorites. I received Art of French Cooking too and I think it's a fantastic read. I've only made just a few things, but I love reading it.



Love recipes that can be made ahead! thanks!


Good luck with your new book! How exciting!
Do you know, before the movie Julie and Julia came out I actually found a copy of the original Julia Child Mastering the Art of French Cooking for only 89 cents! Can you believe it? LOL It's so much fun to look at all the recipes. I keep telling myself I have to try the duck!!!
