European Country Decor Inspiration: Stradella House

May 24, 2011

Well butter my biscuit.
Butter it good,
Stradella House.

Care to enjoy a few images from bella Stradella?

K. But first.
The truth.
It's not biscuits we're buttering today.
It's sour cream coffee cake made from scratch.
Smell it?
And not actually buttering it...dude,
not that there's anything wrong with that
(my Swedish GRAM did it all the time).  

Ina's recipe is similar

I'll share the recipe soon.
