Tea Time

It's Tea Time here at IHCC and you are all invited to our virtual tea party. So pour yourself a cuppa for inspiration, and start looking through your Nigella cookbooks or online for a Tea Time recipe to share.

What goes for Tea Time?

  • It could be the perfect little sweet treat to enjoy with tea like a slice of cake or quick bread spread with jam or marmalade. Perhaps scones or muffins, cupcakes or "puddings" strike your tea party fancy.
  • You might go for something less sweet and more savory like some cute little tea sandwiches, bruschetta or a savory scone or muffin to enjoy.
  • Or maybe you have been wanting to cook with tea and it is a Nigella recipe that uses tea as an ingredient.
It's really up to you!

Just find any Nigella Lawson recipe that suits this week's tea theme, cook it up and post it by Sunday, March 14th.

Link your I Heart Cooking Clubs post of the week's permalink with Mr. Linky, below, so we can all see your fabulous Tea Time creation! Please leave a comment after, each week that you use Mr. Linky to link your post, just to be sure we don't miss anyone.

Not sure what a permalink is? Check out our Welcome post.

Be sure to check out the delicious Sustaining Soups and Stews from last week too! And don't forget to vote for our next IHCC chef (on the side bar). It looks like Bobby Flay is in the lead right now but Mark Bittman and Jamie Oliver and neck in neck close behind!

We are looking forward to sharing a cuppa tea, wonderful recipes, Tea Time conversation and fun with you!

Great post Deb!

It's a tight race for the fellas. I thought Bobby was going to win hands down, but the other two are gaining on him:D

OK, I just posted Nigella's Smoked Trout Pâté--used as a spread for little tea sandwiches. Delicious!

Joanna said...

Jamie! Jamie! Jamie!
Maybe a chant can push him ahead :) Bobby bugs me!

Good morning everyone! The wind is howling here and we have three days of rain in the forcast. My Go Get 'Em Smoothie is up to bolster your energy to face the day.

NKP said...

I know, my smoothie is a bit of a creative leap for tea.. we originally had a hot drink in mind.. but heck - I guess tea time is what you make of it! ;-)
