#30daywritingchallenge: Day 10- Teaching Children To Cook.

My latest challenge is to write about something which I feel strongly about. I just wish I had the money and the power to do something about it. It is getting children to gain life skills, especially by teaching them to cook. Nowadays it all seems it’s Literacy and Numeracy in schools and nothing else…

#30daywritingchallenge: Day 9- Words Of Wisdom.

I’m really enjoying my #30daywritingchallenge as it is a total change from talking about baking all the time. Today’s challenge is to write about some words of wisdom which mean something to you. Now, as a Wet Wet Wet fan the first thing that came into my mind is that Words of Wisdom is the…

#30daywritingchallenge: Day 4- What do you want to be?

I’ve changed the subject of today’s writing challenge. Or should I now say yesterday’s writing challenge as I completely forgot to post it last night. As well, I struggled to find images to illustrate my post, so I’m apologising for using these clipart images! The theme for this post was meant to be about me…

#30daywritingchallenge: Day 3: My Pet Hates.

So, I’m on to Day 3 of my #30daywriting challenge. Today I’ve been asked to write about my pet hates or peeves. What would I put into Room 101 if I ever went on that show? I don’t like being a Moaning Minnie or a Victor Meldrew type but these things do wind me up….

It feels like an eternity since I last updated my blog. I was working in a long term and full time post last half term. Baking, let alone any blogging was the last thing on my mind. The last few weeks have been extremely stressful. Even though baking helps me to relax and unwind, I…

The Great British Bake Off Christmas- Coconut Traybake.

 I’ve been testing a few recipes out of a favourite book of mine this month: The Great British Bake Off Christmas.  There’s been loads of different things to choose from and we’re not just limited to cakes and biscuits here.   I was tempted to have a go at Cathryn Dresser’s own recipe featured in…

My Favourite Cookies.

Well hello everyone!  I’m back on my blogging after a break.  I’ve been teaching full time and there’s been no time at all to get jobs done at home, let alone having time to bake.  I really missed baking though, as that’s definitely my chill out and relax go-to activity. I broke up for the…

Carrot and Apple Cake with a Maple Cream Cheese Frosting.

You can’t beat a good carrot cake can you? Well maybe there are lots of other favourite cakes out there but I can’t resist carrot cake.  I’ve baked lots of them over the years and tried different recipes. I’ve been enjoying testing out a few recipes from Lorraine Pascale’s new book “Bake” recently.  Our neighbouring…
