Several years ago I made some French Toast Sticks using Rice bubbles and they were fabulous. These were a real favourite of ours. They were delicious and they froze well, so that made them great for having in the freezer ready to pull out when we felt like a bit of a quick and delicious treat!

I love puff pastry. Well, I love any pastry actually. I am a pastry afficionado from way back and the butterier and flakier the better! I am a very good pastry maker if I don't say so myself, must be all the years of practice I have had. One thing I don't do however is make my own Puff Pastry from scratch. Call me lazy or whatever. It is very time consuming and the end results are not much better than a good quality all butter puff pastry you can buy in the shops.

I forget where I was, but it was a couple of weeks ago now, I was visiting with someone and they mentioned baking a quiche for supper a few nights before that and I remember thinking to myself, I have not baked a quiche in a while and my appetite for having quiche was immediately whetted and I thought about nothing else for a few days!

Puy lentils, grown in France are just wonderful in soups. They thicken without turning to sludge. They don't break down like other lentils and keep their lovely little shape, giving any soup which is made with them a bit of a bite, a very delicious bite!

As you know I've been working really hard on my cookbook. There hasn't been a lot of cooking going on these past few days as I am down to the crunch. I hope you will forgive me for re-posting these lovely slices from a few years ago. They are delicious, so I am sure you won't!

I wanted to make Todd my Irish Apple Cake for Saint Patricks Day. He loves apple anything, and I have been wanting to re-do some of my earlier recipes and take new photos of them, so today, in honor of Saint Patrick, I re-did my Irish Apple Cake Recipe.
