Happy Birthday, George Washington!

Oh my goodness! I had this blog post all set to publish yesterday, but please forgive me, as time got the best of me! I am so sorry, but here it is, a day late---Happy Belated Birthday, George Washington!

Today, February 22nd, is George Washington's Birthday, a day that the Tudor family has long-celebrated. The ties of the family to the General are explained by Tasha on page 80 of the Tasha Tudor Cookbook, where she also shares the receipt for her Washington Pie (that is actually a cake, rather like the Boston Cream Pie misnomer!). 

Right now, we have this marvelous image of Tasha's Washington Pie celebration available on our "For Collectors" section of the website! The original watercolor, stunningly framed in museum-quality glass and acid-free materials. This would make a marvelous birthday present for just about anyone in your life! This item was also displayed in the Tasha Tudor Museum's first-ever exhibit, Tea with Tasha.
Have a beautiful Wednesday and George Washington's Birthday (it is also Ash Wednesday!). 
Be well and take joy, 


  1. Happy Birthday George Washington! How interesting to read that the Tudor's ancestors were friends with Washington. I can trace my ancestry back to Washington himself.

  2. Gorgeous watercolour & wonderful story.
    Washington pie looks delicious ♥

  3. Oh, I must track down some delicious raspberry jam and make this wonderful pie, once again!!!
    Please stop in for a visit...we are up and running and thankful to be back among friends!
    Have a glorious day, dear Natalie and Tudor Family and Friends!
    P.S. My apron is darling! and that Lavender Goat's Milk soap is SUCH a lovely fragrance...I am enjoying it so very much!
