Tea Time Treats ~ January 2014

Woohooo! Happy 2014! I am so excited about this fresh new year ahead, and I’m kicking it off with this, my very first time to co-host the Tea Time Treats Linky Party!

Tea Time Treats LogoFor those not in the know, this party has been hosted by Karen from Lavender and Lovage and Kate from What Kate Baked for the past 2 years.

Kate has decided to take a break, so I have stepped up to the Tea Time challenge with blender and pinny at the ready! Do be sure to check out Kate’s final recipe round up on the tasty theme of Festive Food Gifts. It is a great round up, and well worth bookmarking for next Christmas.

January Tea Time Treats;

Eggs, Eggs, Eggs!

Ha! It had to be eggs didn’t it?! (For those that haven’t visited before, my lovely readers helped me write Project Egg, a free egg busting cookbook. Get your copy here)

Pick any recipe that could be served for tea that uses one or more eggs. Simple huh? Think cakes, pies, quiches, sandwiches, tarts, pastries, mousses, curds etc. Share with us a dish that has a solitary egg hidden in the list of ingredients, or that highlights eggs as the star of the show. Let your gastro-imagination run wild!

Please take a moment to read the rules and guidelines below and do not hesitate to contact us if you need to know more about this event and how to participate. So, all that remains for us to say is, have fun and LET’S BAKE!


1. Post your recipe on your blog with a link to Lavender and Lovage and The Hedgecombers – mention the relevant month’s host and attach the Tea Time Treats logo as shown on the event page.

2. Add Tea Time Treats in your blog post as a label/tag.

3. The recipe can be one of your own or one you’ve seen elsewhere.  You are welcome to republish old recipes/posts but please add the information about this challenge.

4. Please be as creative with the theme as you like.

5. If you share your post on twitter please mention @KarenBurnsBooth @HedgeComber and #teatimetreats in your message and we will retweet all those we see.

6. You do not need to enter every month to join in with the challenge.

7. Your post can be submitted for other blogging challenges, just make sure this complies with the rules of the other challenge.

8. Add your recipe link to the live linky posted at the bottom of every challenge post.

9. If using a recipe from another person, book, website, chef or blog, you must link back to the original recipe and not reproduce the recipe in full in your post.

    Great to see you hosting TTT Jane and so pleased you’ve started off with a nice easy one. I have of course baked with eggs several times recently, so no issues there. Sadly the butternut, leek and blue cheese tart I made for yesterday’s lunch did not have chocolate in it, so cannot be included – it was delicious though and so yellow.

    I think so we should pronounce you the egg queen! =D
    I am all eggs too as you know so I understand your food love. On the other side, I don’t understand egg less baked goods when egg is the king.
    Now, off to see the other recipes.

      I know, it’s getting silly huh?! Perhaps I need to find myself an Eggs Anonymous group :)
      I know some people have allergies to eggs (poor things) so I guess the egg free recipes are from them?
