I had been looking at the books that Tea Time Magazine reviews and recommends, and this little gem on their site grabbed my attention . . .

What a joy to find it, shipping Prime (which means for *free*), on Amazon for a ridiculously low amount! When I first got it, I was a little disappointed to open it and realize it had been marked in.
Then I realized it was the signature of the author (and not personalized), and it was a happy little bonus!! Ha!
There are a number of recipes in this particular cookbook that I find appealing, but two caught my eye right off the bat . . . I knew they'd be perfect tea party fodder for Ellie and me (and since we had a 'date' coming up, it was timely)!
These pretty little Meltaway cookies were divine . . . and so easy! And then the pound cake in baked in the tea cake molds was fun, too. Both recipes halved nicely, which was kind of important to me.
What I realized that day was that baking was fun again -- the new RV has lots more counter space, which is so critical when it comes to baking! LOL!
I may have gotten a little carried away that day. But the chocolate cupcakes were for Todd. (wink, wink) They came out of my Cupcakes for Two e-cookbook.
Needless to say, we had a marvelous tea party and Ellie was, of course, a delightful guest . . .
Happy days, indeed!
