Introducing: Kenners!

In the days before anyone was PC my Australian grandmother made this golliwog for my brother. Now the little fellow has moved in with me and I tell you, it's quite a challenge trying to explain to him that being depicted with a banana is a dangerous thing these days. But as it happens, Kenners has inherited some of my headstrong grandmother's spirit as well as a swelling cultural pride and so he insisted that I post this photo of him. Please don't judge him too harshly.

A Festive Alternative to Jell-O

Yes yes, Jell-O is an American phenomenon, but why shouldn't we have the pleasure of dessert-
jellies in Denmark too? And by that I mean a kind one can actually serve for guests. Elder-flower and raspberry. Nice!

Crusade Against Deep Pan Pizzas

I'm afraid today's post contains less sunshine and more war. I'm in the mood for removing that terrible invention called "deep pan pizzas" from the face of earth. I never understood the sticky dough and heavyness of that particular brand of fast food. Instead I suggest we travel light and opt for thin-crusted pizzas, Italian style.

A Bit o' Sunshine on a Dull Day

Severely in danger of seeming self important I thought this image would enable anyone to escape to a much brighter day, where the pleasure of this elder-flower sponge cake would not be destroyed by a heavy shower. Please let me know if it works for you...

It's Time For Some Serious Indulgence!

Here's my personal take on ye olde Victoria Sandwich, one of which the dear queenie was said to devour all on her own at tea time.

First Blog Everrr

Of course my blog turned out to be all about the sweet stuff in life as well as in the mouth (no dirty pun intended). I'm just naturally alert to delicious things, as was also the case when I visited Paris in 2006. Just look at these awe-inspiring French tarts;-)
