From Cream Puff and family, I am sending my wishes for a happy and healthy Easter to all of you. I hope the sun is shining and that the flowers are in bloom, wherever you are!
I’ll be back tomorrow with recipes for all these wonderful treats.
Buona Pasqua! Happy Easter hong kong top phd
I’m sure we have all heard the adage that good things come in little packages.
I am managing to survive these still-too-cold early days of Spring by focusing on this concept.
My theory is that if I think of the arrival of Spring as a series of small packages that Nature will give us, one warm day-at-a-time and bit-by-bit, that I will inspire myself to make it through yet another day of wearing my winter coat service apartment hong kong
I look forward to seeing tiny buds unfurling on trees (soon) and the colourful heads of tulips peeping out from the ground (soon).
To be added to the list of small and pretty things from which I am deriving so much pleasure, I add the cookbook trEATs: Delicious Food Gifts to Make at Home by the deliciously talented April Carter of Rhubarb & Rose.
It’s actually a baking book, but howsoever you choose to describe it, you should run (not walk) to your nearest bookstore to pick up your copy or your nearest computer screen to order one.
I. Love. This. Book.
It is small and perfect in every way between the wonderfully inspiring recipes, the evocative photographs and the general overall tone of happy.
Yes. It’s a happy book offshore company formation
Hard to explain in a blog post so you’ll have to pick up a copy for yourself but all I can say is that there is an overall air of happy person to this book. I have never met Ms. Carter but I can tell she is a happy baker and that is good enough for me.
As I flipped through the book for the umpteenth time, I was struck by the recipe for Tiny Lemon Meringue Pie Cookies as I got the overwhelming idea that if I baked them, the weather would change.
What can I say … the happy got to me.
While I used the cookie base recipe from the book, I actually switched the recipe a bit to include a lemon curd and a meringue topping (the original recipe doesn’t call for curd and the topping is a royal icing).
These little sweet bites made me so happy and they made a whole bunch of other people happy.
Good things come in tiny bites, too.
