Cooking and friends

The holidays are coming to an end, but the Christmas cake may stay awhile for us to look at a little longer.....English Christmas Cake's are rich fruit cakes that keep well, wrapped in marzipan and royal icing. I love being creative in the kitchen, and sometimes wish I had more time for of my dreams is to eventually restore the beehive oven and bake artisan bread in it, but that's not going to happen anytime soon!
Tecia Poulas found us this house, and continues to be the most amazing resource for us. Apart from anything else, she's an excellent cook and we often swap recipes. I'd recommend the book she found us on breakfast menus, but perhaps that should be a trade secret. What more can you say about a realtor that leaves hot buttermilk pancakes and champagne on your doorstep on Christmas morning? Here she is holding up another book she found us recently on the history of these houses.
Our new business venture in this house has been blessed with the enthusiastic help of many people, but Tecia stands out for her resourcefulness, exertion and genuine joy at what's possible when you try. or
