Did you know I am British? By first sight and sound, most people don't. There is absolutely no accent unless I am around my extended family or I am VERY, very tired. If you were to meet me on the street you would think I was completely American and it surprises folks to hear that have a green card. However, my birth certificate and my passport tell the true story. I am 100% British, half English, half Scottish.
It was my trip back to England last summer for my Granddad's funeral that reminded me of my home countries rich traditions and culture that is near and dear to my heart. The home I have built with my Yank Hubby is a home of mixed traditions and culture, so thus the name From Donuts To Crumpets!
What the heck is a crumpet you may ask? You have heard the phrase before... "tea and crumpets" (said with a propper, posh English accent), but in reality, you really don't have a clue, do you!
Behold... The Crumpet!
Smack that hot baby with some butter and some golden syrup and it is crunch through your teeth, crispy joy on the outside... melt in your mouth, spongy crumpet heaven on the inside. (Thanks to all those holes in the top that just let the syrup drip through.) Trust me when I say this is NOTHING like what Americans like to call an "English Muffin". This, my friends, is pure unadulterated bliss.
So yeah, I luuuuuuuuurve crumpets. There are in fact lots of things from my British Heritage that I like to
