I have decided that today is going to be a baking day for me, so I pulled out my trusty English baking bowls, that I lugged in my suitcase all the way from England, many, many years ago. Of course you can now buy them here, I have seen them in quite a few kitchen shops.
My mother and grandmother always used bowls like these whenever they did their baking, I think you could probably find them in the kitchen of most English homes.
I remember being in the kitchen at my grandmother's home when she was cake baking asking could I lick the frosting from the bowl when she had finished frosting the cake, she of course always let me, I seem to remember that she left a lot more frosting in there than my mother ever did...don't you just love grandmother's!I am going to make something from this lovely little cookbook, I actually found it on clearance in the book store a while back.
I think I would trade my daughter for a set of the dishes on the front cover....just kidding (I forgot that she reads my blog). They are beautiful though, don't they just scream out for a tea party in the garden.I haven't decided what recipe from the book that I am going to make yet, here is one for lavender scones, now I know what some of you are thinking....yuck lavender in scones, but don't knock it, I have been very surprised as of late how lovely things taste with lavender in them, especially ice cream, it's yummy.
Well my husband is off tomorrow, so that's it for this week, see you all on the other side of the weekend.
