I hadn’t made scones for years, I remembered from school that they were a bit difficult. Well they’re not! You need a little time for some stages, like mixing the flour, butter and sugar with your fingers to look like breadcrumbs...don’t try answering the phone at this point! This recipe makes cute little scones, about 24. I like them with margarine but maybe you’re a jam and cream person or perhaps you like the cheese variety. Each to their own! Why don’t you them a go.
This is Tortilla de Patatas the way my grandma used to make it. Always better when the egg is slightly undercooked (which we only had when grandpa was not eating, because he liked his well set), but tasty either way
This is my families traditional Christmas cookie recipe that we’ve used ever year for as long as I can remember! We make yummy cookies and then decorate them with lots of frosting and sprinkles. These cookies are definitely one of the best things about the holiday season.
This Pavlova is a traditional New Zealand Christmas dessert, and it is also my favourite! It was named in honour of the Russian ballerina, Anna Pavlova. And one hotel Chef in 1929 in Wellington, New Zealand who was inspired by the touring ballerina and created a dish with clouds of meringue to mimic her tutu and kiwifruit slices were copying the green roses that were into her costume. I hope you like it!
I have always loved Easter eggs with dioramas. My Christmas equivalent is vintage ornaments with a depressed starburst. You just know that something fun is happening in there! The same is true for a cream puff! This panel is a combination of an Aunt’s love for and my fond memories of Hawaii, Grandma’s use of botanicals for holiday and everyday decorating (now taken over by my sister), and the whole family’s taste for pineapple.
When I was growing up, Mom always decorated for Christmas with deep royal blue ornaments, silver garland, brass horn ornaments and flocked greenery. So beautiful, Mom! I thought this dessert would be a fitting tribute to her glamorous decor. The recipe for the meringue base for the pavlova is from Sallysbakingaddiction.com.
