So far I have baked exactly 5 things this year. We're half way through March and I have made 5/100 bakes. I have this mad notion that I will bake like a crazy person in the summer but realistically I don't see that happening. Do you? Because I don't. I'm now guessing that instead of… Continue reading Thrice, she baked!
So, yes, I made fudge. For the first time in my life! Why did I decide to make fudge now, you ask? Well, that's because it was part of my 100 Bakes Challenge! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we are now TWO items down from my list. Just 98 to go! Oh, by the way, I… Continue reading Oh, Fudge!
I baked! I made oat and raisin cookies. You know, for my challenge. Of 100 bakes. In a year... That we have just over 11 months left of and I've managed one bake so far. Eh, I did a bake! Woohoo! I wanted to start with something nice and simple so I went with my… Continue reading One down, 99 to go
Hi everyone! I actually started this post on Friday but then something came up and then something else came up and before I knew it, it was too late to bake anything. So here I am giving it another go. I guess I better get to it! I have had this specific type of post… Continue reading Bake With Me – Pumpkin Pie
HelloooOOOOooooo everyone! I hope that was sufficiently spooky. Halloween is right around the corner now so I thought it's very appropriate to write about something suitably themed. Cupcakes! But not just your ordinary everyday cupcakes. SPOOKY ones. Well, mostly just silly actually. I have made two lots of Halloween themed cupcakes this year. Hmm, I… Continue reading Halloween Cupcakes
Hi everyone! Hope you've all had a great weekend so far, doing something that you enjoy - maybe some of you have even been baking? No? Just me? Nah, I don't believe that for a minute. I know that some of you reading this enjoy baking as much as I do (and more) so I'd… Continue reading Super Simple Salted Caramel Bread
It's been aaaaages since I last shared any of my recipes with you, so I thought it's about time I do just that. Last night I baked some cookies and just on the off chance that they may turn out delicious, I did my best to document the process. It wasn't without a few bumps along the… Continue reading Coconut + Cranberry Cookies
As Easter's only around the corner now I'd love to share one of my little Easter treats recipe with you lovely people. I don't actually really celebrate it myself, it's more just about the cute bunnies, decorating eggs and having egg tapping contests. Eggs. What a weird word. Anyway, for some reason I have a couple of… Continue reading Rice Krispies Easter Eggs
There's no way around gingerbreads during Christmas time. The smell of freshly baked spicy biscuits wafting through the house is enough to make anyone feel festive. I love baking my own gingerbreads and then decorating them with royal icing. It is a bit more work than my previous recipe, so I've divided it into three… Continue reading Festive Baking – Gingerbreads
Is that title too long? I want there to be no mistake what this post is about - re-organising wardrobes! Just kidding. Today I finally made the Xmas tree brownies that I've been wanting to make for so long now. I used as many shortcuts as I could, to make this easier. Nobody's got time… Continue reading Festive Baking – Xmas Tree Brownies
