Baking & Musing...

* Reading Breakfast, Lunch & Tea~ Rose Carrarini.
* Dreaming of Baking Date Scones.
* Have to take a decision between Bonne Maman's Rasberry preserve or Fabindia's Chunky Orange Marmalade before the Jam bottle is emptied in a few hours.
* Brought back my mother's old Foley measuring spoons. She knew I'll 'want' it one day.
* A duster cloth so beautiful, I might never use it.
* The husband, the daughter, our neighbours enjoyed the Chololate Chip Cookies.
* I used powdered Jaggery instead of Brown sugar. I always do.
* A kitchen is a great place to hang out.
* Have to buy some Fresh Mangoes. Loads of them...

I'll take a dozen. Perhaps even two! They look scrumptious.

Lovely homely feel to the post :)
Just finishing a bottle of Naturellement Orange Marmalade with really large peel shavings - which my friend got me from Pondy - Haven't tried out Fab's marmalade yet..once this bottle is over, will buy that!
Your cookies look delicious, which recipe did you use?
I use Fabindia's powdered jaggery in most places instead of brown sugar and results are good, with a dark brown colour too.

A duster cloth so beautiful, I might never use it.

I soooo relate to that :)

Beautiful post as always.

:) table cloth that might not be used at all :) so many things that we leave as they are, perhaps their beauty is in their usage?
and yes,
*update alert*
