The-Sweet-and-Savory-of-Yummy


April 20 - April 26

The-Sweet-and-Savory-of-Yummy

Share your favorite teatime recipe for sweets or savories. Tea sandwiches, scones, and dainty desserts all count in this category. Give credit to the originator of the recipe if possible. Post a picture if you can. This is sure to make everyone hungry for a delicious tea time treat!



Ideas for recipes to post this week are: scones, crumpets, shortbread, cookies, baby cakes, tarts, tea sandwiches, soups, salads, fruit treats, jams, jellies, curds, and creams. I'm looking forward to the recipes you choose to share! It's too bad we can't make a 'potluck tea party' with each of us actually bringing the foods represented by our recipes to tea!

The pictures this week are from a 'back porch' tea for two that I prepared for my friend and neighbor, Karleen. It was her birthday and we enjoyed a relaxing time together.

  2. Hello LaTeaDah,
    Your pictures are so beautiful and the recipes sound so delicious. I was wondering if that was your Tea Table? Can I come over for Tea?
    I've posted a few recipes and will probably post more later. I am enjoying this so much! Thank you for hosting. My husband thanks you also as I had to make scones yesterday to photograph.

  11. So many lovely photos and recipes all revolving around tea. I noticed that so many of the participants have the most interesting blogs all about tea. I look forward to visiting all the blogs and finding new recipes for my teas. Karen

  12. I've purposely not gone visiting until I posted this because I thought I'd become overwhelmed by the bounty and the beauty. LOL! As always, La Tea Dah, thank you for being such a great hostess!

  13. Oooh, a part of the blog-a-thon I CAN participate in! I may not have tea linens or creativity to write a teacup story, but I CAN cook and bake!

    Dearest Most Gracious Hostess, can you give me info on how to paste the blog-a-thon logo on my blogsite?

    I would be most grateful!

    Sipping my tea and dreaming of comfor-tea-ing food,

  14. La Tea Dah,

    I JUST figured out how to post the logo--no need for you to instruct. It's amazing what having a cup of tea can do for your brain power! :)

  16. Hehehe, it is the right link to my blog but the title still has my Mr. Linky from Semicolon's blog!

    Sorry, I didn't see that it was there. :)

    LOVE the blog-a-thon!

  17. LaTeaDah, this has been such a wonderful experience! The love of tea and the bonds of friendship that are formed over a cup are evident in all of the posts. I finally have posted a recipe. It is a small token compared to the bounty you have shared. Thank you so much. ~Kathy

  18. Good Morning LaDonna, I've post my recipes on my blog. I've entered my name and address into Mr. Linky but when I click on my name is goes to some other site! Can you fix this or should I try again? Help!

  23. I'm sorry to be posting late in the game; but, they say better late than never. I've been busy,too, planning a Mother-Daughter Garden Tea for later this month. I'm gleaning lots of wonderful ideas from this blog-a-thon. Thank you!
