GC scents I'd like to try or have more of:

All in the Golden Afternoon
Dragon's Blood
Dragon's Milk
Eat Me
Knave of Hearts

Notes I like: Vanilla, peach blossom, white musk, cinnamon, plum, sugar, tea. Anything sweet and foody.
Notes that depend on the blend: Honey, rose, white chocolate.
Notes I'd rather avoid: Bergamot, coconut, cocoa, skin musk, pepper, rum, vetivert.

Trying to be on time with cards for once this year! So if you'd like a card from me for the season then please do comment, I've got lots of cards and I'm not afraid to use them!

Seriously, I couldn't send out cards last year due to family issues and would very much like to make up for it this year. So just copy and paste the form, comments screened and please do leave me your address even if you'd given it to me before as I've had several hard drive failures in the meantime ;~;

Posting this for [livejournal.com profile] kidouche, it's one of the first recipes I ever made and one of my favourites. Taken from The Canadian Living Cooking Collection.

1/3 cup cream cheese
2 tbsp icing sugar
1/3 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp grated orange rind
2 cups all-purpose flour (Note: I sometimes use self-raising with a lot less baking powder instead, it works just as well.)
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2/3 cup milk
1/3 cup whole cherry jam (Note: I often use strawberry or forest fruit jam instead, this is entirely up to preference.)
2 tbsp finely chopped pecans (optional)

> Blend cream cheese with icing sugar, set aside.
> In bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar, beat in egg and orange rind. (Note: I don't actually like orange rind so I've never used it with this recipe, it can be left out.)
> Combine flour, baking powder and salt, add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, stirring just until blended but not overmixed. (Note: Important not to overmix!)
> Spoon into large greased muffin tins, filling halfway to top. (Note: I don't have large muffin tins so I usually use medium sized, with muffin cups instead of greasing the tins. You get more muffins out of it this way too.)
> Add 1 tsp of the cream mixture and 1 tsp of the jam to each, top with remaining batter. (Note: the dough is a bit tricky to cover the jam and cream properly with, make sure it's all covered and sealed or you may end up with a mini jam-explosion /speaking from experience)
> Sprinkle with nuts (if using).
> Bake in 375F (190C) over for 25 to 35 minutes or until firm to the touch.
> Immediately remove from tins. (Leaving them to cool for a couple of minutes helps with the muffins not breaking, though.)

Makes 12 muffins.
