We have an observatory in the city i live in and you have made me think i shold take a look. Wordcustard. It is a great place to visit with countless major sites as well as plenty of quirky little things to see and do. Forgot about the University Campus and last weekend I discovered new archaeological digs near Stonebow. Ever-changing and a great place to grow up in. Many thanks for your comments. I need no convincing to visit York, it is a beautiful city set in lovely countryside. However, you have certainly given me some new ideas of things to see and do there. Thanks for sharing some of York’s secrets! Let me know, James, when you do and I’ll put a link from my articles. Many thanks for the comment. I’ve been meaning to write a hub on York for ages, but have been too busy with other work. If I do get round to it, I’ll have to work hard to get it to this standard. We are relative newcomers to the city but really enjoy living here. Many thanks for your comments. In my teenage years we would ‘hang out’ at the University and go to concerts and parties there. Used to like the stepping stones; it is a very beautiful campus. A great hub on York, one of my favourite cities in England. I used to visit sometimes when my sister was a student at York University (where I loved the weeping willow trees) . I haven’t been back for a long time, but it’s a place I always think of with fondness. And I recall having tea and cakes in Betty’s Tearooms, too! I love the idea of the Snickets, and imagining the lives of the Victorians. York has definitely got a lot of offer, both on and off the beaten track.
It was interesting to find out some history as well as the recipes. I could wish more recipe hubs had some history of the food included. I’ll need your address, ha. Pizzelles are quite simple to make. Thanks for the compliments. I appreciate you both stopping by to read and comment. Have a great weekend! What a beautiful cookie and a lovely Hub! Thank you for the recipe. I never knew how to make these. Ooh, I want some now! Voting up and sharing. Aww Vicki, thank you so much for the compliments! Cousins, yes, of course, store bought Pizzelle’s are pretty good. But as usual, they are a little better made in your own kitchen. I hope you try them! I’ve seen pizelles in the store and wondered how they would taste. I don’t have the equipment to make them but I think I will buy some next time and take your suggestion to dip them in chocolate and nuts.
Wow, these do look creative! Beautiful hub, as always, too, Sharyn! I’m happy to hear you enjoyed this article. I bet your grandmother made the best pizzelles. The love that had to go into them being made one by one on the stove is incredible. Thanks so much for your feedback. Found your page after searching on the website for variations on pizzelle recipes. I’ve been making these for many years but enjoy trying different recipes. I enjoyed reading the history of the cookie. My grandmother was born in Chieti in the Abruzzi area of Italy. She made her pizzelles on her stove top , in old fashioned iron, one at a time! I hope you do try them. Thank you so much for stopping by. I do see pizzelles in the store year round now. But homemade are much better. Get yourself a pizzelle maker! They are fun to bake and you can win some points with your MIL. I appreciate your feedback and votes.
