some days, there’s nothing for it but to boil the kettle and enjoy a cup of your favourite brew, best shared with a friend
perhaps a macaroon too? or two? straight from Grandma’s recipe book
2 egg whites
1 1/2 cups desiccated coconut
1 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla
few drops almond essence
Beat egg whites until peaky, then add sugar a little at a time, beating after each addition. Lastly beat in the essences and very lightly fold in the coconut. Place in little heaps on a greased slide and bake in a cool oven till just tinted.
i’ve been blog browsing this morning, catching up on some old favourites and came across the video you see below and here at Tara’s blog.
Perhaps, if I may be so rude as to suggest the order in which you should proceed…
1 watch this fascinating insight into tea making
2 once correctly educated on such matters, grab a cup for yourself
3 settle in for a lovely browse at Tara’s – her work is truly extraordinary & exquisite.
