I haven't checked in for a while to this thread but are the twins here yet????  How exciting for you:)

Sharonma, haven't a clue what the other Sharon means, but her Grand parents were polish so maybe she has a secret receipe for boiled cakes:)

Sharon, I live south of Allentown.  We live in a little town called Emmaus.  We are northeast of Phila.  It was so fun to finally get our picture on.  I felt like a faceless person.  This picture was the one that was taken for the Hall of Hope in my cancer center.  I finally asked the photographer to shrink the picture so I could put it on the site. What big city do you live near?  The Eagles let us down but they did better than I thought they would.  I am a big Phillie fan and am really looking forward to watching them this year.  We have the pitching now all we need is for them to hit.  It should be a fun to watch year.  My kitty helped me get through some of the worst times in my cancer fight.  He is so precious to me.  Talk to you soon......Mary L

Mary, love the picture!!

Tricia, the twins are due to arrive within a couple weeks.  Sometime between Feb. 3 and Feb. 15th.  Daughter is doing great.  Still working full time and getting around better than most of us do with one!!  It has been so much fun watching her progress and preparing for the instant family.  We spent the weekend at their house awhile back and got all the To-Do List taken care of!!  Babies can come anytime now and we are all ready and waiting!!

Love the photo Mary and your Little Treasure is adorable:)

Sharon, Lammingtons are an Australian thing,  you make a Chocolate sponge cut it into squares and cover with chocolate icing and coconut flakes, scrummy.

I know the boiled cake sounds odd,   My Nan has passed but I'll ask Mum if she still has the Recipe!

Here it is!

In a Saucepan put:

1 Teacup of water
1 Teacup of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of Bicarbonate of Soda
Mixed Dried Fruit (as much or as little as you fancy)
6ozs of Butter

Bring to the simmer on the Hob for a few minutes 'til butter melted.

COOL THE MIXTURE

Beat in 3 eggs   
Fold in 2 Teacups of self raising flour along with some Glace Cherries and Walnuts.

Bake in oven at 160 for 90 to 110 minutes, depending on your Oven.

Actually even I could do that lol..
