Cornflake Crispies.

I have a new favourite recipe book. It’s actually one I bought about 5 years ago and never got round to testing out any recipes.

#30daywritingchallenge: Day 29- Organised Or Messy?

It’s the second to last post of my #30daywritingchallenge and I have really enjoyed focussing on other things apart from writing about baking.

Last week I was in my local Tesco. Usually I’m straight in and straight out again hurrying around getting food and other bits but this time I had a bit longer to wander about. I had a look at the books, magazines and at the stationery. Now I’m a bit of a stationery freak and…

#30daywritingchallenge: Day 20: My Happy Place.
