Here’s the First Re-posted Recipe

Saturday, September 25th, 2010

As I mentioned before, I’m planning to re-post the recipes that were on my prior blog.

This one was sent to me by my step-daughter Kirsti who lives in Devon. I haven’t managed to make them yet, but they sure sound good!

Raspberry Buns (makes 12) Traditional British recipe

225g/8oz self-raising flower
1 tsp baking powder
75g/3oz butter
75g/3oz caster sugar*
1 large egg (lightly beaten)
extra caster sugar for dusting buns
raspberry jam

Preheat oven to 180 degree C/350 degree F/ gas mark 4

To Blog or Not to Blog —

Wednesday, September 8th, 2010

Now that I have resurrected this blog, I’ve had time to ask myself some questions and have decided to do things a bit differently in this version.  I know that I have links out there that describe this blog as containing recipes and “how to” articles.  While I do fully intend to re-post as many as I can remember of the recipes that were in the original blog, and to write some articles on candle and jewelry making , I will also sometimes simply write about something that happens to be on my mind at the time.
