|Yesterday I OOPSED. Today I am going to fix this heirloom cream. When making this cream I was rather stuck in what I should scent this with. As I got to the end however, I decided there was no way you could talk me into covering that delicious honey odor. This cream reminds me of the Greek dessert Loukoumades. They are like fried doughnut holes that are soaked in a rich aromatic honey syrup and then sprinkled with cinnamon. They are so good! One whiff of this cream and I am transported to the local Greek Festival surrounded by music, arts, crafts, and divine foods like Baklava, Galaktoboureko and Finikia.
This cream feels a little stiff and smooth. It makes me think of a massage cream that needs to be slowly worked into the skin. It makes the skin feel firm and dewy. Mnn. It makes me think of setting up a canopy in a field of golden wheat with the breeze blowing the stalks lazily. Can you hear the bees humming gently as the sun pours its golden rays down on you? Come join me in the kitchen for the Honey Heirloom Cream!
