So of course the next question is, where do you get wordwood?

Yum, I need to start some serious liquor making. Smiley

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Holiday table place cards? on: December 20, 2004 05:53:33 PM
I could use some inspiration from you always inspired crafters.  I need to make some place cards for our Xmas table (the things that tell people where to sit).  I wanted to do something a bit different than just a plain paper card, but I cannot come up with any simple but beautiful ideas.  (Must be my fuzzy cold-infected brain!)  The only thought I had was to write people's names on some glass ball ornaments, but I have no way to get to a store to buy them between now and Xmas so that's not going to work.  I need to work with what I have around my house and I don't really have the time for anything overly complicated.  Does anyone have ideas?  Is anyone else making place cards?

Thank you so much for your help!

I don't know if you have come across this site already, but I think it is one of the most comprehensive and authentic:

It includes translations of actual medieval cookbooks.  You can't get much more authentic than that! 

I haven't made any medieval recipes myself, but I have tasted some, and often the flavors and combinations aren't at all like modern food.  They require some adventurousness and a bit of historical appreciation!

Good luck!

Do you all know recipes for any homemade liquors?  I've seen recipes recently for homemade Kahlua, and I know about infused vodka, but there are more homemade recipes! I'd like to make some for gifts.  Thanks!

8  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Wedding Cake on: November 20, 2004 03:44:53 PM
For my wedding, my friend made a truly amazing cake.  It was a White Chocolate and Lemon cake, from Bon Appetit recipe.


If you like lemon, this is an incredible cake.  I can honestly admit it was the best cake, not just wedding cake but best CAKE, I have ever had in my life.  In fact, it's been over a year since the wedding and my family is till talking about how great the cake was!

I admit I don't really know how complicated it was to make.  My friend used to work in a bakery, so she may have some special skills that helped her.  She didn't decorate it like the picture online, just used fresh flowers which were really beautiful, but obviously you could decorate however you wanted.

I don't know how big of a gift basket you want.  My husband's family exchanges little stocking stuffers instead of big gifts, so I'm planning on making hot chocolate sets.  I'm going to mix up some homemade hot chocolate mix, make some homemade marshmallows (assuming they come out alright) and then include those both with a cheap christmas mug.  It's simple, inexpensive, can appeal to almost everyone, and is almost complete ahead of time (except for the marshmallows).  I haven't made the marshmallows yet, but I assume they will last at least a week (?), and since I can cut them into small-ish pieces I should only need to make 2 or 3 batches which I can do in an afternoon.

Last year I also made spiced nuts, which went over well.  There are lots of kinds of spiced and sweet nuts, so you could make a variety of them if you wanted to offer a bit more substantial gift.

I made the Cooks Illustrated Pumpking Cheesecake last year and it was really, really good!

This year, I'm hoping to make the Pumpkin Custard Profiteroles from November's Bon Appetit.  I haven't made it yet, so I can't comment on how good it is, but it looks impressive:

I don't plan on making the "maple caramel" because it requires maple sugar, which I don't have, but I thought it would probably be great with some fudge sauce or some other sort of caramel.
