My light lemon and tea scented loaf cake turned out to be a big hit with my husband. He’s a meat and potatoes kind of guy so I was a little surprised, but then again he’ll eat nearly anything I put in front of him. I’m pretty lucky that he’s adventurous to try new ingredients and flavors. This is a great after Thanksgiving loaf. If you’re feeling overloaded with turkey leftovers the gentle and delicate flavors of this loaf are perfect.

I hope everyone had a delicious and relaxing Thanksgiving weekend. We had a really great time at my sister’s house. She’s definitely a better cook than I am. She made the entire Thanksgiving meal from scratch. Cranberry sauce, yeasted rolls and the stuffing (even the cornbread in the stuffing). The jellied cranberry sauce she made I think was my favorite. We’re not even a cranberry sauce loving family. It was an amazing meal to inaugurate Alex into the Thanksgiving tradition.

I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! Hard to believe that this is the first time I’ll be having Thanksgiving on American soil since 2000. I was a junior in high school that year and just got my learners permit. That makes me feel really old now. I’m easing myself back into the tradition this year. I’m going to my sisters house in New Hampshire. We’re getting up a dawn and driving over there from Connecticut on Thursday morning. I’m keeping my fingers crossed it doesn’t snow too hard.
Now that Thanksgiving is nearly here it’s time to get ready for Christmas! I am very excited to be back in America for Thanksgiving but I will miss Christmas in the UK terribly. The UK has a lot more Christmas tradition (that or I’ve been away for too long). Just some of the things I’ll miss are Christmas Crackers, Boxing Day, Mince Pies, Roast Potatoes and the Queen’s Christmas Day speech.
My experience so far tells me that Americans love all things British. A British accent in America turns heads and can even win over the steely woman that works at the DMV. Just ask my husband Alex, he’s turned on his British charm on a few occasions so far! What’s not to love about Great Britain? They have the Queen, Big Ben and a lot of history. For so long I posted about bringing American baking to the UK, today I have a British baking book to introduce to the Americans.
