Gentle Friends thank you so much for your kind comments and emails, once again warming the heart on a cold blustery day..... we have a really cold front moving through this week, even the who hounds are finding it on the chilly side!!
Sunday afternoon after Thanksgiving wound down I got back in the kitchen and whipped up a cake I had wanted to make for a while now..... "Cranberry Crunch Cake"....I really love the cranberry, so tart and such a great colour, a real fall fruit!!! The recipe comes from Flavors by Four a fabulous Blog run by Nicole. You can find the recipe HERE..... and here's my little pile of cake.....
..... as you can see I have traded out my Fall stuff for a Christmas... this is a great cake, really moist and the candy nut topping gives it a nice crunch. The berries a tart and delicious, I would highly recommend this cake for the season!!
Today's Christmas Film is one that I would call a modern classic.....
"A Christmas Story" - 1983 - starring Peter Billingsley, Darrin McGavin and Melinda Dillon. Initially when released it did not do well and was considered a "sleeper film" it has gone on to become one of the staples of film for the Christmas Season, at least in my little world!! The story is set in 1940's Indiana and revolves around Ralphie and his desire for a Red Rider BB Gun. The movie is in three acts, each act has Ralphie trying to convince an adult in his life the BB Gun is essential to his existence, except everyone continues to warn him that "He'll shoot his eye out." It's a really fun film and usually at some point it appears on TV, and has in past years been given marathon status with the moniker "24 Hours of a Christmas Story." The film has been released in every format imaginable from Betamax and Laserdisc to Blu Ray. It's a great film and a fun piece to watch, if you've not seen it give it a try.
That's about it for today sports fans. Thanks for stopping by, do stop again!!
