When Caitlin and I were in San Francisco last month, we stopped in the Ferry Building along the Embarcadero. It was around 11:00 a.m. and, even though had lunch plans in an hour, we thought it would be fun to wander through the marketplace. We shared a sorbet from the Ciao Bella stand and then went across the hall to a small food store to find (something else) to hold me over until lunch. At the checkout stand, there was a tin bin, filled with several varieties of caramels. It's always more fun to DIY.

Every week, we'll spare you a trip to the grocery store and show you how to make small batches of great foods at home. Today: Let your cares melt away with soft maple candies.

A Birthday Trip to Narnia: White Witch Cake and Turkish Delight. Every now and then I will get an email from a young aspiring baker who gets a real kick-start from this blog.

A Birthday Trip to Narnia: White Witch Cake and Turkish Delight

Shealey is one such person. She's a dessert enthusiast who loves photography, puppy dogs and painting pictures - sound familiar? She's definitely a kindred spirit. Last Christmas she emailed me to share how much she enjoys reading Sprinkle Bakes, and I thought that was so very nice of her. I recently received another email from Shealey saying that she is turning 13 years old this month, and asked if I would consider featuring Turkish Delight on my blog. "It is dull, Son of Adam, to drink without eating," said the Queen presently.

"Turkish Delight, please, your Majesty," said Edmund. The Queen let another drop fall from her bottle on to the snow, and instantly there appeared a round box, tied with green silk ribbon, which, when opened, turned out to contain several pounds of the best Turkish Delight. --excerpt, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

I add fresh squeezed juices, kombucha, and sea salt to them to enhance their nutritional content. This week my kiddos were looking like they might be coming down with something, and they were not sleeping very well to boot! Mari Bermain di Dapur: lemon milk agar. This is a dessert i've been promising Tengo Un Horno y Se Como Usarlo to make about a month ago, she should read this post.. (p.s. i'm really sorry for the delay and hopefully you'll like this recipe). remember my post about lemon pudding? Well, i don't really like it but this lemon milk agar or i can say the Indonesian style lemon pudding is a sweet caress for my tongue. i love this too much. my lemon milk agar has a mild taste of lemon. i don't really like a strong flavor of lemon, it makes me dizzy. the lemon tastes even milder when it blends in with the milk. if you prefer a stronger taste of lemon, serve this with lemon curd, i'm sure it would be nice. however, i prefer to eat this with sweetened condensed milk in a hot sunny day. so refreshing!
