Make My Saturday Sweet - Blog Hop #12

Welcome to another great Make My Saturday Sweet blog hop! There is no theme to this hop. Simply link your family friendly blog below and follow the easy rules. Thanks!

Here are three more photos taken at Samantha's 12th birthday party. I only post faces when I know that the parents don't mind, so sometimes I cut people out or only show a part of them.

The first photo is of the birthday girl with her two friends that stayed the night
and who went ice-skating with us the following day. Don't the girls look lovely?

The middle photo is of my eldest daughter, Jessica, roasting a marshmallow
over the last embers of a fire. You can't see the heat of the embers,
because of the flash.

This last photo is of the butterscotch fondue. I'm sorry I don't have a better picture
to show you. It was a huge hit and some of the kids have been asking for the recipe,
so I decided to share it with you. If you click on the recipe's title, it will take you to
the book where the recipe is from on Amazon.

Butterscotch Fondue


60g (2 oz / ¾ cup) butter
125g (4 oz / ¾ cup) demerara sugar
4 Tbs. golden syrup
440g (14 oz) can evaporated milk
4 Tbs. chopped unsalted peanuts (optional)
6 tsp. cornflour
Pieces of apple, pear, banana and/or popcorn to serve


Put butter, sugar and golden syrup into a saucepan and heat gently until mixture begins to bubble, stirring occasionally. Allow to boil for 1 minute.

Stir in evaporated milk and cook for 3 – 4 min. until sauce is hot and bubbling, then add chopped nuts (optional).

In a small bowl, blend cornflour smoothly with 2 Tbs. water. Add mixture to sauce in pan and heat until thickened, stirring. Pour into fondue pot and place over a burner to keep warm. Serve with pieces of apple, pear, banana and/or popcorn.

Serves 4 – 6
