June 2011 Newsletter
Greetings, everyone!

Aaaah! June is here, along with the warm weather and lots of outdoor activities. We also have Father's Day in the USA coming up on the 20th.

They will be handing out diplomas at all of the high school and college graduation ceremonies, and there will be lots of parties to plan. June is one of the most popular months for weddings, including my son's. Chris and Robin will be getting married on the 5th, in an outdoor ceremony near a local landmark, the Corbin Covered Bridge, originally contructed in 1835.

Congratulations to the Graduate

This bridge was reconstructed after an arsonist burned it to the ground in 1993. The town raised the money to have it reconstructed according to the way it was first built, with oxen pulling the timbers across the river. It was celebrated with a festival that included artisans from far and wide producing their wares in the 'old fashioned ways'. Eventually, they put in a lovely park by the Sugar River next to the bridge.

If you are planning an Irish wedding, check out my recipe for a Traditional Irish Wedding Cake, which is a whiskey soaked fruit cake for the top layer, and the rest is whiskey soaked yellow cake ... scrumptious!!

I received a submission from a woman looking for a recipe for 'milseog'. She had tried some at an Irish pub restaurant and wanted to make some herself. She described it as some type of pastry with caramel, pecans and Bailey's Irish Cream. When I researched it, I learned that milseog is the Irish word for dessert and there were several different recipes. They were all similar, with some type of pastry; some had nuts, some had fruit, some had whiskey and even Guinness. I think my recipe for Irish Cream Pudding Parfaits with Oatmeal-Walnut Crunch would fit into that category. It is really delicious!!
