Can You Name 5 British Desserts? (NO Googling!)

My youngest child is practicing (and hopefully improving) her writing skills. She picked a random topic and did some research.  The topic was British desserts, subject matter which she definitely had to find out about on her own because:

(A) Her American mother was clueless.
(B) Even though her father is from The Bahamas - which at one time was beholden to the Queen of England - Bahamian food is in no way a reflection of British cuisine.  In other words, he was also clueless.


Was pleasantly surprised with the results of her search.
Has anybody ever tried any of these treats?
Can you name 5 more British desserts?
(Supplied a link below if you can't think of any.)
  1. Arctic Roll
  2. Bakewell Tart
  3. Eton Mess
  4. Flies Graveyard
  5. Rock Cake
Flies Graveyard?? Sounds perfect for celebrating Halloween.

Determined to make your own sushi? The four ingredients listed below are considered the "basic sushi essentials".

  1. Gari, thinly sliced and pickled ginger.
  2. Wasabi, aka Japanese horseradish
  3. Nori, dried seaweed used to wrap the sushi roll
  4. Sushi rice, a Japanese rice that is sticky and short-grained.

Got these tips from Bani Grill. Great basic information to get started. But beyond this point? Uuuhh ... Let's go together.

Cheesecake ... UM? Heaven? Delight? Joy? Who Cares? It's Cheesecake!!!

Cheesecake heaven ... delight ... joy ... 
dressed up or plain. 
No matter.  It's the best dessert on the planet!! 

July 30th is the official date set aside for National Cheesecake Day.  But for me, it's an occasion to extend throughout the entire year. 

Happy NATIONAL CHEESECAKE DAY!

Happy for any excuse to enjoy a piece of cheesecake! :) 

Gourmet Cheesecake is the ultimate dessert gift for the ultimate dessert lover, try these cheesecake gifts. 

There are many wonderful sites where you can purchase these fabulous gourmet food gifts online.

Does a Carrot Spice Cheesecake sound tempting? CRAIG'S CRAZY CARROT CAKE CHEESECAKE is available at The Cheesecake Factory. Also tempting is the classic New York Style cheesecake and a decadent Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake.  Tough decision huh?  Hard to decide if you want to be generous and buy it as a gift OR get it for yourself and eat it all?  I know.  I'm weak too and find it difficult not succumb to the temptation.  :)

Mangos Plus Roses Equal Refreshing Earthly Delight

Almost everyone loves roses. But these flowers have a special meaning to me because of my late mother's rose bush which was the centerpiece of the front yard of my childhood home. Every time I see a roses, it's impossible to disassociate them from this childhood memory. 


My Facebook friend is knowledgeable about holistic health and alternative remedies and she published a wonderful article about rose water which she refers to a Grandma’s Secret Weapon. She explains the benefits of using it for skin care and suggests it be a part of aromatherapy. That sounds fabulous. But did you also know that you can drink rose water?



Following me so far? 

You're probably thinking: 'Hurry and get to the part about the mangos!'


Mangos (or Mangoes)?  Another childhood memory is being able to go out in my backyard or my neighbor's backyard and pick a mango from the tree to enjoy. To this day, it's always a thrill find any kind recipe that includes mango as an ingredient. Sharing the recipe gives me an even bigger thrill.



Here is a link to a quick and easy recipe that is sure to delight you.




In case you've never seen or heard of a “lassi”, here is a clear definition found in Wikipedia:

“Lassi (pronounced [ləs-siː]) (la-SEE) is a popular traditional yogurt-based drink from the Indian Subcontinent and originates from the Punjab. ... a blend of yogurt, water, spices and sometimes fruit.”

The definition does not specifically mention “rose water”. But it does say “water” and that's good enough! :)




Rose Flower Water by Malandel (French) 16 oz


The malandel is a product of France.
Rose flower water is produced by water distillation from rose flowers.


  • Not only is it great in a smoothie but can be added to a creamy tapioca or rice pudding and marries well with most ricotta cheese desserts and Italian sponge cakes, cookies and biscuits.


  • Shop TyentUSA.comSprinkle a few drops into ice water for an amazing transformation.


  • In the Middle East, it is used to flavor baklava (or filo desserts) and sherbets, and Turkish delight candies.

Which Cultures Make the Best Cakes?

Which Cultures Make the Best Cakes? My husband says when it comes to baking, nobody beats out the Greeks and the Jews. We all have our preferences and there is not one person in the world who can say that their specific food tastes is “the right food taste”.

Take me for example. I grew up using Betty Crocker and Duncan Hines cake mixes. The first time I ever ate a piece of cake made from scratch, my mouth didn't know what had happened. It was the mostest bestest softest wonderfullest piece of loving joy ever!  Cake is love!

Needless to say cake baking is not my forte. But I do love a great cake. It would be right to say that cake loving IS my forte.  💗

Honestly! If Queen Marie Antoinette had really said “Let them eat cake!” and I had been in earshot distance, I would have been “Where?!! Where??!! Where's the cake??!!”



Recently, I've been coming across recipes shared by my online friends from different countries and also from food newsletters that I subscribe to and it's got me dreaming and wishing I could enjoy all of these wonderful baked delights without having to concern myself with the possible ill effects of consuming too much sugar. Alas! There is diabetes in my family line and I just don't want to take any chances.

Most of the time, I enjoy cakes by just looking at them or maybe taste a teeny weeny sample. ☺

But some cakes are far too pretty and unusual to eat. Don't you think?  Like these incredible jelly cakes.




Stunning Edible Flower Jelly Cakes Blooming in Your Plate

These gorgeous jelly cakes came from 'La Floraison' in Sydney Australia. Like a Japanese rainbow cake these confections are almost too pretty to eat.

Some cakes are not even cakes. They're masterpieces. Works of art!



And then some cakes are dummy cakes. Dummy cakes? Yeah. New term I learned when I found a wedding cake by LeNovelle Cake that somebody shared via the Google Plus social network. Below is a photo of the most extraordinary dummy wedding cake I've ever seen.



What about you? Do you 💗 cake?

Taste of the Islands - TV Cooking Show on PBS

Finally! Singing the Hallelujah chorus. AGAIN!

This time all the rejoicing is because of a food TV show.

We relocated to Austin, Texas in 1998 and my mate's first observation about living in this land-locked part of the state was that the city was missing a good Bahamian restaurant or at least some place that serves dishes that look like island food!

Once we got cable TV hooked up and got settled in, his next complaint was that the #foodie channels didn't have a good cooking show to teach people how to prepare common island meals.

In 2015, his prayer was finally been answered.







http://tastetheislandstv.com/chef-irie/Our public television station (PBS) airs a show called “Taste the Islands”. Chef Irie (real name Hugh Sinclair) lives in South Florida but is from Jamaica.

My mate is from The Bahamas.

Close enough!





 
We're both very happy.
For now.  :)
