Celebrating the Winter Feast and Christmas at home for the first time in  10 years.

Days of Baking and Decorating and then Feasting and Celebrating with Neighbours, Friends and those I Love.

I missed my brother and his family. I loved and enjoyed connecting with my Mom by baking and cooking from my heart as she always did. 

Love and enjoy!

Hungry today!

The state of being hungry can be the springboard to NEW.

Being in a state of desire and hunger for something has very often been a great place to start.When I am hungry I generally launch in. When I am hungry I usually am in for the whole meal. When I am hungry and I am cooking I am usually sampling and very much enjoying the act of creation.

I am enjoying all of the hunger that I am able to use as I plan my season for 2012.

Glad today to be hungry and working on my next steps. I am very excited about what I am cooking!

TODAY is all about the BERRIES! I love the termFrutti di Bosco”, the Fruit of the Woods.

I love berries and they are good for me! I will share my yummy treat that I made for the day.

Whenever I have this delicious treat I feel like I can be Pan in the forest, a satyr in the wood…

Berries

Strawberries – Raspberries – Blueberries – Blackberries

Slice the strawberries, toss in the raspberries, blueberries and blackberries. Sprinkle with a little sugar or drizzle a little honey, add some finely grated lemon zest. Sprinkle all with a little Lemoncello or a bit of orange juice. Toss all together. Cover and let sit for the afternoon. It is better if the berries not kept cold but left at room temperature. The berries will ripen and their flavour will blossom if they are allowed to be a little warm. 

Drizzling Sauce

Sour Cream – Sugar or Honey – Lemon Zest – Lemoncello or Amoretto or Orange Juice

Sprinkle about 2 or 3 table spoons of sugar or honey over a pint of sour cream. Add the finely grated zest of one lemon and a couple of  tablespoons of Liqueur or Juice and stir together. The consistency should be of thick cream. Add more or less liquid to get to the consistency you like.

Base

Meringues, Croissant or Brioche, Day Old Cake. A few tablespoons of sweet and flavourful liquid.  One piece or slice for each portion.

Serving

Splatter a big spoon of the Drizzling Sauce on a plate. Break the base up into 2 or 3 pieces, scatter pieces over the Drizzling Sauce on the plate and sprinkle with some Vin Santo, Orange Juice or Liqueur. Splatter a bit more Drizzling Sauce over the base. Generously scatter lots of Berries and their juice over the base. Splatter some more Drizzling Sauce over the Berries. Voila!

Serve at once encouraging everyone to sop up all of the juice and the sauce on the plate with whatever you have used for the base.

TODAY I will enjoy my berries.
