As promised, here's another book from my pantry closet book shelf--The Tasha Tudor Cookbook. There's some marvelous recipes inside, like the one for Baked Beans, and another for Yorkshire Pudding. Scrummy!
I like Tasha Tudor. We used to share the same fashion sensibilities
In honor of Presidents' Day, I baked her Washington's pie.
It's a simple sponge cake, or "delicate", as Tasha would say. Its main flavors are the raspberry jam mixed with kirschwasser spread between the layers.
What do you think of the cunning little hatchet design?
And as promised, I'm inviting you to tea. You don't mind the mismatched china, do you? Speaking of china, I saw a 1930's tea set from England in the local thrift shop, missing only a saucer or two.
It was under twenty dollars. It was charming. I decided not to pounce but to think about it. I was a fool. Went back a few days later. Let's just say that she who hesitates is lost. Especially in the world of thrifting.
But never mind that. I'm glad you're here. One lump or two?
