Welcome!

Welcome to the Frog Hollow Farm blog! I've been blogging since January 2010 and have switched from Blogger to Word Press, but I'm back to Blogger because, for me, it's easier to use. My husband and I live on a little farm in Northwest New Jersey. We have some chickens and a very large vegetable garden with asparagus and raspberries, and rows and rows of sunflowers, snapdragons and zinnias. Traveling, entertaining, gardening, spending time with family, studying Italian, blogging and reading keep us busy and happy. With all of this going on, moving towards a simpler life seems almost impossible but it's definitely a daily goal.

Irish Tea with a Savory Bisquit


Happy St. Patrick's Day to Everyone.  This is a sweet little tea set from my mother.  It was made in Connemara, Ireland and has four teacups with saucers, a teapot, honeypot and salt and pepper shaker that sit in a little holder with three individual spots. 

As you can see, I've used one of the saucers as a plate for a savory bisquit that I made from this recipe in Bon Appetit.  I've also placed a little pot of shamrocks in another one of the tea cups. 

Now, I think I'll make that cup of tea and savor one of those delicious bisquits.

  3. Lady Katherine, I am truly (truly) honored to be part of Tea Time Tuesday! Yes, my mom was wonderful and found a lot of these goodies on eBay I believe.

    Terri, thank you so much for visiting my blog. I love this tea set, and knew it was unique the first time I saw it. It sits in my stepback cupboard with my mom's Waterford chrystal this time of year.

  12. The tea set is such a treasure from your Mom! Can't wait to try out the recipe for the biscuits. I am thinking they might be very good with a Shepard's Pie. Have a great weekend!
