    Recipe Pan de Jamón ( Venezuelan Ham Bread)

    So here´s something unusual for you if you want to give it a go. It´s a Venezuelan tradition at Xmas time - hundreds and thousands of these are sold at bakeries, and the bread is a great snack at any time of the day. I just had a slice for breakfast. It was invented back in 1905 by a local baker...

    It's that time of year again: Christmas 2021

    Now that Thanksgiving is officially over, let's get with the Christmas already! I'll start with posting this year's cut glass ornament: We have maybe 25 of these, and I think this year's is my favorite. Pointy pointy!

    Early Christmas Shopping

    With all sorts of shipping backlogs currently plaguing deliveries, I have decided to get my Christmas shopping out of the way early. Yes, it's true, I have already been the victim of delayed shipments that have driven me to the brink of outrage. It isn't pleasant wondering where your...

    What Did You Really Want For Christmas?

    What did you really want for Christmas? I could tell you that I wanted a Canon EOS R5 and accessories, but that will come in time. That camera has been on back order for some time now anyway. What I wanted is to see my fellow Americans wise up to long term consequences of the continued...

    Foodie Gifts for Christmas (or whenever).

    I think half the challenge of buying gifts is choosing the right thing for the right people. With that in mind I thought it might be an idea to have a thread that we could share some of the food related presents we’ll be gifting to the food lovers in our lives. I’ve still got a few people to...

We bought a 15 cm spring form for the pork pie and both agreed although it was late we would start...
