Rose Water Madeleines




I



 
Jane Austen moment in Persuasion

Chapter 8

The evening ended with dancing.  On its being proposed, Anne offered her services, as usual; and
 though her eyes would sometimes fill with tears as she sat at the instrument, she was extremely glad
to be employed, and desired nothing in return but to be unobserved. It was a merry, joyous party,
 and no one seemed in higher spirits than Captain Wentworth.  She felt that he had every thing to elevate him which general attention and deference, and especially the attention of all the young women of the family of cousins already mentioned, were apparently admitted to the honour of
of being in love with him; and as for Henrietta and Louisa, they both seemed so entirely occupied
by him, that nothing but the continued appearance of the most perfect good-will between themselves
could have made it credible that they were not decided rivals. If he were a little spoilt by such eager admiration, who could wonder?

    1. Thanks Joyce,for the lovely words. And yes, this JO's cookbook is worth it. So far I've tried 2 recipes from this cookbook & they're amazing. Going to try another one soon but they're so many yummy recipe to choose from! LOL I love to have sexy gardener to tend my garden but no luck! So I have to tend it all by myself; dreaming of Gerard Butler kinda gardener to give me a hand! That will make it SO interesting! LOL Growing roses is quite a lot of work & in order to have full summer blooming, I've to remove all the faded flowers like daily; If not tak ada bunga!! So it's kinda daily routine to tend my rose garden; But It is very rewarding, don't you think so? heheh Have alovely day, Joyce

  8. Hi Kit,

    1. LOL... The 3 tier cake tray was a gift from my friend. He bought it at an Antic shop. Personally I prefer using silicone Madeleine tray. Easy to remove the Madeleine & get another batch oo in the oven ASAP compare with the metal ones. That stick quite a bit, I must say. For me this silicone Madeleine tray is worth the purchase! Have a lovely day, Emily! =)

  21. How true Kit, My rose plants are constantly telling me to bake something and I feel short of time. but I will make something simple this weekend.
    I really really admire your garden and would wish to visit you one day. I don't have a huge garden but my family knows how much I love plants.From last couple of years I have been facing this problem with slugs in area. I have tried all natural methods of beer, yeast but is not working.Egg shells and other methods, No I have a small dog. These things can not work for me. I am tired of catching them, my daughter says they like me. Why am I writing all this here?

    Your madelines are just amazing! Have a great weekend ahead.
