  1. Sorry but some of the finest chefs and some of the finest restaurants in the world are in the British Isles.
  2. Camel Camel camel. Google it.
  3. Paul Young's classic fudgy brownies. This is the third batch I have made in the last two days. One batch will go for the meeting people, one batch was made with gluten-free baking mix and will go to my daughter and one batch will go to the rehab group. I was out of Lyles Golden Syrup so used honey for the first two batches. I don’t recommend it. They ended up very dense and very sticky. The last batch I made with maple syrup and I’m much happier with them. Once again we will see how many get returned as unsatisfactory.
  4. So pleased I only got a picture because I don’t have room for one!
  5. I do this frequently and get quite annoyed that I am not able to look up a word.
  6. Think I might be on a fruit crumble bent. I had two apples in the crisper drawer that looked much more attractive in their youth than in their senescence. I diced them without peeling, tossed them with some currants and some honey and topped them with my usual crumble topping (butter, sugar, flour). This is one of those desserts that is almost infinitely adaptable, quick to pull together and enjoyed by many people.
  7. It is what it is. I’m sure there are ways of reducing rhe sweetness and you’d probably have a delightful treat but it wouldn’t be a butter tart. That would be my two cent’s worth if we Canadians still had cents.
  8. Thank you for providing that link. I was just too tired last night. Except for being overly sweet, I don’t think that butter tarts and pecan pies have a great deal in common.
  9. I like to make @Marlene‘s Butter tart squares which are in the recipe archive.
  10. And it has probably been mentioned before but it perfectly rehydrates (plumps up) dried fruit. I used 10 minutes at 210°F steam function.
  11. It grew up in Canadian waters?
  12. An opportunity to celebrate that most Canadian of treats —— the butter tart. Butter tart festival.
  13. Canadian eh? See what happens when a whole nation legalizes cannabis— we can persuade our neighbours to buy things they never heard of before — things we wouldn’t dream of buying ourselves.
  14. I am desperately in need of new glasses so today my daughter drove me to get my eyes tested and then took me to Costco to order my glasses. Since there’s a lovely little Thai restaurant just two doors down from the place where my optometrist practises, I treated my daughter to lunch. We both had the same thing. Their salads are always beautifully fresh and made with a variety of greens. Creamy coconut curry with rice.
