We Already Have 1059 Recipes.


I am sorry I haven’t been around lately but this past week I wasn’t feeling very well, so I wasn’t up to visiting, commenting, writing blog posts, or even doing much with the book, except for editing a few recipes.

I have some awards to acknowledge and today Nadjibella made my day by giving me a sunshine award.  Now that I am feeling much better, I can see the sun shining gloriously again and hope to visit all of you within the next days.

First of all Chapot, from Dans ma Coquerie, recettes de Cuisine, has passed a Happy New year Award.  Merci Chapot and I am really sorry it took me so long to acknowledge!!

Even if January has almost passed, I am still passing this award to some friends.  I know that it is not time to wish somebody Happy New Year but if you wish to acknowledge you are free to choose one of the other two awards posted below:

    Hi Ivy, I hope you are feeling a little better now! Thanks so much for mentioning me in your list of award giving! 🙂

    Also thanks for entering our little give-away! I have to confess that I expected to see more suggestions like yours. Traditional Greek ingredients.. as a matter of fact I've already done extensive experimenting with the ingredient of your choice and it's coming along nicely!

    • Thanks Liz. Mastic is an ingredient I use quite often in cakes and frostings and I love the taste so why not use it in cupcakes or just in the whipping cream or both.
