Quick Bread

A moist and delicious quick bread,  is a family treat and also very easy to prepare.  These are what you need, flour, egg, cheeses, yoghurt,  zucchini, pumpkin and oil or margarine. I baked it for my family and it was so delightful.  The recipe is for you to try.

While the oven was going, I did other baking.  I baked mini chocolate cake and individual ricotta and egg pies.

Vegetables and Salads are always at our table.  It is so good to have a vegetables patch in the backyard.  The lettuces have been great, they are  so fresh and crisps.  I have to admit though that I do shop other vegetables that I need in the market.

Enjoy the recipe, give it a go, you may like it too.

Baking and Sharing

Often I share my baking with friends, and also with community.  Having tea and sweet after playing sports is a good idea but we have to be careful about what we are going to eat.  I think fresh -baked scones are suitable for the occasion.  I baked very nutritious pumpkin scones and fruit scones for our sport club.   Both were dressed with pumpkin jam and sprinkle with almonds flakes.  They looked so beautiful, festive and tasted so delicious.  People loved and enjoyed the scones.

I could not help it, I garnish my offering with herbs and also flowers, for savouries or sweet.   The plates look good that way and also the food.

Sharing is good, it is not hard to make others happy.

Thanks For Visiting.
