Mother's Day Gift

Finally, I have found the time to sit down and browse thru’ this wonderful book and a precious gift given to me by my Piggies on Mother’s Day. A book full of many variation of pizzas and flatbreads….and full of beautiful pictures of mouthwatering food :)) and I have been drooling on them and earmarked the ones I am going to try out when they come back home for their breaks.

I heart this book, it teaches how to make pizza dough to calzone dough, tortillas to chapatti and bannock to sope, sweet flatbread to bliny. Wow…browsing thru’ the book makes me hungry :P The author of this book is Rebecca Baugniet and she is a freelance food writer living in Montreal with her husband and their three children. I have another book by her “ 500 Pies and Tarts ”.

And I also heart the verses the Piggies penned on the sweet they are , they wanted to give me something that I like and something that will bring me JOY knowing this Momsie is crazy over recipe books....this book will keep me company till they come back home....oh how wonderful and thoughtful of them! It is a joy for me to receive this book for baking is a passion that will live on in me.

:) :) :)


I have ear marked this recipe ....bliny, a Russian pancake
served with crème fraiche and smoked salmon or caviar

" Thank you so muchie ,Piggies, for this wonderful gift "
I am looking forward to baking more
yummilicious goodies for all of you :))
