Paddington's Sandwich

Like most people who cook I also love to read about cooking. Well, I love books in general so while reading interesting, moving book I can find here and there some culinary-interesting parts, I am in heaven. But...I must confess something. I also have secret love interest in children books - since I always wanted to be designer or illustrator I look at them from different perspective. That's why on my shelves are many children books. And one of the best is Paddington series. Those warm and little old-fashioned books are amazing. 
When people are thinking about recipes from books plot usually they came up with recipe for Proust's Magdalenes or other grown-up book's recipe.
But this time try something simpler, something what Paddington would love to try. 
Paddington's Marmalade Sandwich 

2 bread slices cut into triangles
2 tablespoon of Blood Orange Marmalade*

It couldn't be easier - take one triangle, put on tablespoon of marmalade and connect with second triangle. Or take two slices, pour marmalade on one on inside part, cut into triangles. 

Blood Orange Marmalade

1 kilogram of Blood Oranges
600 gram of sugar

Take big saucepan with thick bottom. Take of skin and white skin from your oranges, cut into small pieces, removing as much white skin as you can. Put into saucepan and add sugar. Mix well and turn on heat. Stir occasionally, just not to burn. It would take up to 60 minutes to turn oranges into wonderful marmalade. Serve on Elevenses.

Homemade Hot Cocoa

3 tablespoon of cocoa powder
1 tablespoon of vanilla sugar
3 tablespoon of sugar
pinch of salt (which is very important, don't be surprised)
100 ml of hot water
350 ml of full fat milk

Start by mixing water, cocoa powder, pinch of salt  and both sugars in saucepan and bring to boil. Stir often and be careful not to burn. And milk and bring just to boil. Take off from heat. Pour into cups and add some chocolate pieces if you like.
Do not forget about salt - it add something special to cocoa and take sweetness of it to another level.
