So very kitsch!
When having a good look through my china cabinet this week, I realised part of it is so very kitsch :-)! Our house is modern, even design, but when it comes to my taste in porcelain, I tend to go over the top. I find it hard to resist pretty florals. My husband and daughters are used to it now and even start to like the treasures I regularly take home with me. Nevertheless there are times when I ask myself, for instance when I look at the colourful cake forks I recently found in the thrift store, what possessed me to buy them?! Does this sound familiar to you?
As we are having guests this weekend, I decided to bake a pie and use the forks straight away :-)! Apple Almond pie it was going to be. It turned out to be a good choice. It's a classic apple pie with a crispy shortbread bottom and a creamy butter almond filling. Although the taste is mild, we all liked it. Unfortunately I don't have the time to write out the recipe, but it came from Annie Bell's cookbook Gorgeous Cakes. When you enjoy baking, I can recommend the book to you.
I wish you all a lovely Sunday and a good start of the week. We are off to celebrate my fathers 75th birthday!
