Thanksgiving is gone and many of you I'm sure have finished your shopping, giftwrapping, tree trimming, home decorating, card sending and ready for the baking. Before you pull those recipe books, cards or piece of paper - my favorite thing. I often scribble on Post-It ingredients for recipes (without title) then later wonder what recipe is this...cookie?...cake:...stuffing?!? Here is something I will call it my "sweet stuff" to share.
I came across this website called Creative Market with tons of fonts, graphic and all the really cool things to make cards, invitations, labels and the list goes on.
Creative Market is a site where creative people, like me in another sort of creative way, hangs out. Beautiful designs are shared and offered at ridiculous price to the public. Although I don't have a Word Press blog, I have found a template I will be using for this blog as well as some other cool stuff too. Go check them out.
Now on the food side of things. I got the call yesterday. Yes, my mom calling me regarding the baking of our traditional fruit cake, a.k.a., Jamaican Black Cake or Rum Cake. In our house it will be the cake for all our celebrations especially Christmas. The Southern Red Velvet cake is coming in at a close second but it won't replace our beloved fruit cake. I have had my fruits soaking from last year, likewise my mom. My family is from Jamaica and the plum pudding-like fruit cake, rib roast and ham are staples at our dinner table. Living here in South Florida for 20 years we have added a few additional items such as sweet potatoes, and green beans casserole. What are some of the traditional meals you have at your family dinner table?
