My Thoughts
My daughters and I enjoy baking and creating fun meals for the family. As a young girl, I loved coming home after-school and on occasion baking up a pan of Tea Cake Cookies. The recipe was simple and easy to whip up. I would love to share this tradition with my five daughters. 

Edwardian Cooking by Larry Edwards has many easy-to-make recipes for the sweet tooth in all of us. Besides the Tea Cake Cookies you may like to bake some scones, biscuits, banana walnut bread or other various shortbreads. In Desserts at the Abbey you may like to try your hand at rice pudding, strawberry shortcake or pound cake. You may prefer to create a special dinner using a recipe or two from the breads, soups, side dishes, entrees or savory recipes. Whatever you consider, I am sure it will be exciting to share an Edwardian meal or dessert with your family or friends.

You can find Edwardian Cooking on sale as an ebook at Amazon. (Kindle Edition) 

Thank you,
