LOL - not really!!!! I have been reading Calidore's blog for quite a while now. Every so often she shares a recipe that she is currently baking... Well to cut a long story short I am hooked... Hooked on what you may ask - well, baking... I am not a baker - I don't mind doing it occassionally but I am not into biscuit and cake making - I used to when my girls were little and for a while there, even made my own bread the old fashioned way... Those days are long gone - come here and you get a packet biscuit with your cuppa... But Calidore, since I have been reading your blog especially in this sprint up to Christmas I am hooked... Yesterday I rediscoverd my cake and biscuit cook books and I have gone through them remembering what I used to create... So I have decided to make a couple of things for Christmas... And I came back to your rum ball recipe as that is the one I remember my Mum using - I can taste them already... So Calidore think yourself proud - there aren't too many people out there that have influenced me the way you have... And my family will bless you as they stuff their faces with goodies on Christmas Day...
My list :
Mince Pies - I make my own 'good' pastry and buy the fruit mince from the health food shop.
