Summer is finally barreling in – and by barreling I mean, it’s peaking near 70°F here, which means as long as the sun is out I only need a light cardigan. Like I said: barreling.
Meanwhile, we just bought an outdoor space heater for our back porch so we can actually have barbecues this summer without freezing our bums off. Come on over and we’ll watch the sunset as we sip frothy hibiscus ginger ice cream floats on my back porch. Move over lemonade, ice cream floats are the official drink of summer 2015.
The Edmonds Cookery Book has been a New Zealand institution for four generations. My mother, my grandmother and my great grandmother before me all used this recipe book that has remained in New Zealand kitchens as a timeless classic and surely one of the most successful branding exercises in NZ history! (Edmonds, for those who are non-NewZealanders is a baking brand, originally comprising baking powder only but now a large number of baking products.) Gone are the days when a couple announcing their engagement received their free copy, but we still buy this cookbook in droves making it the best selling book ever published in New Zealand.
