Remember those days when family got together on a Sunday for the special roast dinner or a late Sunday afternoon tea, with sandwiches and little baked goods and treats? We cherish those memories today -- and with families now spread far and wide, we rarely get the chance to gather on Sundays or for any day for that matter. Those were good days.
Nowadays, these gatherings take place on special occasions, like birthdays, Mothers day, Weddings and such. Not as frequently as we may like.
That's no reason not to enjoy the little sweet bakery goods and treats of our childhood. Our British bakery, Sweet Expressions in Denton County can help, just take a look at a smidgen of the bakes I make. If Mary Berry bakes it, so can I.
