A quick morning trip to the local library and I have bought home a wonderful book called, Bake essential companion, by Alison Thompson.
You know I need to bake more sweets, just look back at my last posts, I haven't baked enough of late. This book is gorgeous, beautiful photography, decadent sweets and pastries. There is even a recipe for puff pastry, now I always just buy it in a pack, because seriously puff pastry requires some arm work. There is a quick puff pastry recipe in there though, I may try it out.
I also can never resist a pretty twig of Australian Silver gum, for purposes of drawing and just cause they're so pretty.
Whilst out I remembered a friend had said, I had to try the bakery that sells great baklava near the library, again I didn't really need more sweets but I live in an area where there is baklava a plenty and if there is some that is better than the rest then I am there. It is certainly good I have eaten three.
So a quick dash to library and I have something to peruse over tea and sweets, what could be better when it is so cold and wet outside.
