Several weeks ago (on my birthday weekend) my husband took me to The Bluebonnet Café for breakfast. If you have never been to The Bluebonnet in Marble Falls, Texas read the full article at www.roamingthehills.wordpress.com

This week I made some Irish Soda Bread. I know, I’m a little slow at getting around to baking it. I should have made it St. Patrick’s Day as planned. Oh well! So I started to make some Irish Soda Bread with a recipe from Simply Recipes. I made a few changes, and now call it my Irish American Bread! First, I substituted ½ of the flour (2 cups) for whole wheat flour. After about 35 minutes, I had to cover the bread in foil and cook it an additional 10 minutes or so. The whole wheat makes the bread a little denser, but I expected that. Second, I used craisins instead of raisins. My son and I enjoyed the bread hot right out of the oven. YUM!  The creamy butter we added melted over the top of the piping hot bread and the craisins added a little sweetness. This was soooo fast and easy! This would be wonderful accompanying a pot of soup.You can find the recipe here http://simplyrecipes.com/recipes/irish_soda_bread/

Aprons For Today’s Fashionable Chef!

Press Release-August 2009

Meggie Mae Aprons is an online boutique, which provides handcrafted, artisan quality aprons that are very unique. Although many of the aprons are vintage inspired, these aprons are designed to be trendy and fashionable for today’s modern hostess. Meggie Mae Aprons are cut from designer fabrics and sewn with a quality that is apparent. A Meggie Mae Apron is sure to please any hostess or aspiring chef in your life and make an excellent gift for a birthday, bridal shower or just to say ‘thank you’!

Meggie Mae Aprons are the inspiration of Karin Cantlon. Karin’s inspiration and her love of cooking comes from her daughter, Meghan, who is a Nutrition Major at Texas Tech University. From her mother, whose middle name was Mae, she received her expertise as a seamstress.

“I’ve always enjoyed cooking as well as the fine arts, and designing aprons allows me to do both. The look and feel of textiles combined with family time in the kitchen gives me inspiration-it’s what I love.”

The love shows in every apron she creates. Each apron is made at the time of order, never mass-produced. Once a fabric is no longer available, or Karin tires of it, a new design appears.

“Because I like to create, new fabrics and designs come out often. I try to introduce new ones each season-at least that is my goal.”

Having an apron to brighten up each season or special occasion is ideal, and with these fashionable designs you’ll look very chic as you entertain guests or just go about your daily activities in the home!

“I like designing aprons for the modern cook. Although I love the attributes of vintage designs, I know the chef of today not only cooks great, but looks great as well. That’s why some of my designs are best worn slightly below the waist and are somewhat form fitting, while others have less gathering and more pleats-very flattering to any figure.”

You can purchase a Meggie Mae Apron by visiting www.meggiemaeaprons.com. Also, you can leave a comment on your favorite apron, no purchase necessary.
