I am just getting around to opening the pages of some new 2010 cookbooks I stacked on the kitchen table earlier this summer! I will be reviewing some in the coming days but this morning I took a peek inside THE SONO BAKING COMPANY COOKBOOK. John Barricelli, host of PBS's "Everyday Baking From Everyday Food", has presented a fabulously helpful cookbook. Afternoon Tea Lover's will want this wonderful book loaded with great photos and instructions and potention Afternoon Tea Treats!
Downloading these photos also reminds me of the relatively simple project I did this weekend which was to take this formerly rectangular tablecloth and cut off some of the end fabric to sew on the side so it would fit my antique square kitchen table for a fall tablesetting!
If you are a perfectionist this might not work for you! The squares aren't exactly matching. I didn't have a lot of fabric to waste so I wasn't trying to line them up knowing on the side of the table who would notice?
The former size was too narrow but also too long! You can see the side addition here......now back to the cookbook....
as you can see the chapters here would be very helpful for recipes for your Tea Party! A third generation baker, John covers it all!
