My favourite baked morning tea or afternoon tea goods are tarts and slices. You may have already noticed that. My cookbook has plenty of them. But now I am eating gluten-free and low FODMAP, I have to recreate many of my favourite recipes. Lemon and marshmallow are high on my list of desirable elements and I combined both for this first low FODMAP slice. I was delighted with the result and my digestive system is feeling very happy about it too. I did manage to cut them all on a slope and I promise I had had nothing more spiked than a cup of green tea when I did it. So when you look at the photos, they are not crooked, the slices are.
I thought you might like an update on Dario’s tobacco plants which he has grown from seed. They have now taken over one section of the garden.
I also want to let you know about a friend’s book which I just read. Soraya Lane has written THE WAR BRIDE CLUB and it is a lovely story about the British women who married American soldiers during the war and then went to live with them in America after the war. Not all the stories are happy and each of the heroines in the story has a vastly different experience. This story makes you really think about all those women who sailed off to unknown futures with men they barely knew. It is an e-book which costs only $2.99 and you can buy and download it HERE. And look at that glorious cover!
