the wrap party~

i hope you have all enjoyed your time with the novel bakers this week, it has indeed been a busy one with loads of books shared and recipes tasted. in my efforts to share so much visually i know i neglected my first obligation, the mere mention of the books which inspired us so much. we all know beatrix is the inspiration, but many other wonderful books were our sources this week

first i must share the 3 childrens cookbooks that gave me so much delight. mine were all purchased used, and i mean very heavily and lovingly used. i adored my retired library books, knowing many little hands enjoyed these pages as much as my tired old eyes.

on the first recipe i couldn't help but smile knowing that some pudgy little fist most likely left the remnants of this recipe crusted on the pages. i can assure you, if i was buying a fancy french cookbook, used by adults only, i would hardly find it charming, but the mere fact that wee ones were cooking with beatrix was a pure delight for me. if you have children or grandkids, what a wonderful way to bring beatrix potter alive.

in addition to the childrens books we also purchased beatrix potter's country cooking, which had so many delicious recipes that i am delighted i added this into the group. from the chilled peppermint soup to breads, cakes, puddings and biscuits, with all courses in between, you are surely able to create some luscious lakeland creations.

with so much food safely tucked behind us, i would like to invite you all to our final beatrix potter cast party, from our tables to your, happy easter and may you always be reading a good book~
