It is really tasty but I'm not entirely convinced it works properly on the North American side of the pond!

My mum was born and raised in Harrogate so knew parkin. Every time she tried to make it when we lived in Canada, it was a disaster. She'd get a tried and tested recipe and it never worked to her satisfaction.

Of course, there is always the angle that she was a useless cook but her apple pies were to die for so I think it was something else!!!

I can't speak for the States, but when I was at school in Canada, I only had 1 year of British History and then it only concentrated on ENGLISH kings and queens; nothing else!

Want to know about the fur trade, The Plains of Abraham and Samuel de Champlain - I'm your girl!!!!

A little, but it was mostly just the part where you guys were lame, so we had to go find another country to hang out in. LOL!

i had a great bonfire night! me and a few of the family went for a meal to a chinese restaurant and then back to my cousins for fireworks. my god daughter (22 months old) was terrified and was shouting 'all gone, all gone' for some reason she shouts this whenever she is scared, bless her!
