Yet again I struggled with a Strands puzzle through lack of knowledge of the theme. I have eaten pecan pie, but I’m not hugely into baking (I make a mean curry, though) and given that I hail from the UK rather than the US, I don’t have that cultural awareness of what is a staple of American cuisine.

For that reason, I found it difficult to spot all of the answers even once it was obvious what kind of words I needed. Some – for instance FLOUR and SUGAR – were fairly obvious, but I had no idea that SYRUP or VANILLA were part of the deal. And where are EGGS – surely they’re needed? As I said, I’m no expert…

How did you do today? Send me an email and let me know.
