Welcome friends for tea this week. I'm sitting on the sofa perusing the new tea book I purchased and received in the mail. A couple of Magic Cookie Bars made with Eagle brand milk and lots of chocolate to nibble on with our tea.
It's on the side table with an angel and few birds that stay around for the winter.
The book was written by fellow blogger and journalist Angela McRae. Her blog Tea With Friends is a wealth of information on recipes, traditions and anything tea!
'Dainty Dining' is filled with vintage recipes, memories and memorabilia from America's department store tea rooms. Although I didn't recognize most of the departments stores, celebrity names I did know. Who would have guessed that the big, strapping 'Duke' John Wayne would have visited a tea room?
From a Snow Princess to Mr. Bingles, many famous recipes are included and all kinds of tea trivia to thoroughly enjoy.
Congratulations Angela, your book is a real delight to read.
