I had the need to bake......

after a book arrived from Amazon. I had seen it on this blog http://rosylittlethings.typepad.com/ and after a little thought (like 2 seconds) ordered it, that and the fact it is half price at the moment - I have coveted this book for a long time. It is a beautiful book, the recipes are gorgeous - lots of things Cypriot, South African, Italian to name 3....the photos are fabulous. Now I want another of hers, but I am going to have to wait.......

So today I baked Sue's Rusks, which are in the South African section. They are like biscotti, are very easy to make and taste really good. Here is the "and now I have a pot on the go, I am going to bake" shot: And here is the finished item (with another pot of tea):
The girls wanted to say Hello, I think it has something to do with the dangling ties of my apron....here is Pumpkin:and here is Maddie

Right,I am off to order some wool (yes, I do knit - I just don't photo it that often - at all, actually) to knit some Fuzzy Feet. Lulu, my slippers that you sent have finally bitten the dust, so I am going to have a go at felting - ha ha! I will MSN you for advice, knowing how good our previous experiences have been...

I nearly forgot someone - look who has just crept into the room to grab some autumn sun:

OK, so I can see that the two black kitties pester the heck out of the cool as a cucumber orange tabby. They're all just gorgeous cats.

Ok, that leg climber pictures is BEGGING for an LOL caption! Too cute!

I love a good bake cookbook with decadent pictures myself too!

The look on Pumpkin's face is too funny!

Nice job on the Rusks! Looks like they came out picture-perfect!

Oooooh very cute kitties... love the orange one, just contemplating life the universe and everything in his little patch of sun.

What adorable pictures! And Pumpkin is smiling, how cute is that? There's nothing like kittens to just make you want to snuggle and cuddle and...

wait, I can't snuggle and cuddle anything right now. I'm still at work. It'll have to wait till I get home.

The marmalade cat in the sun is such a beautiful, evocative image -- you're really taking gorgeous shots these days!knit
