A life without lemons is like swimming in the nude. You can do it, but it just feels wrong.

A Life Without Lemons is my little blog about food, family and an ongoing love affair with gin and tonic.  I am a wife, mother of two lovely (loud, messy, crazy) boys, trained butcher and passionate cook of all things tasty. I moved from rainy England to snowy Canada in 2011 and planned to make friends and influence people with food and gin.

In 2013 I have embarked on a baking mission to make 52 different breads. All of the recipes are from one book – Women’s Institute: Bread. I have no special tools or fancy equipment. Just me, my kitchen and a pre heated oven.

Why not come along for the ride and make some bread……….

CROISSANTS ~ #26 of 52 Breads in 2013  {Recipe}

Croissants are delicious and a real labor of love.  They take time and butter, lots of time and lots of butter in fact.  They are best made over two days.  Day one is all about rolling, folding and chilling day two is rolling, cutting, cooking and eating (the best bit!).

CroissantsCroissantsTASTE: Rich, flaky and utterly delicious straight from the oven with a generous helping of jam and real butter.  Not something you are going to make every day but for special occasions they are well worth the work.
