So last Sunday was Mother’s Day here in the UK. My mum is very hard to buy for. Anything she wants or desires, she buys it! So when it comes around to birthdays, Christmas or Mother’s Day it is a real struggle to know what to buy. This year I decided to make something. I…… Continue reading What do you give a person who has everything?
Baked one of the latest Tesco recipe cards today. Every time I go into my local Tesco’s I check to see if there are any new recipe cards. I always feel awkward if there are new ones, I feel like a thief taking all the cards. It doesn’t help that the cards are next to the…… Continue reading Chocolate and Caramel Muffins
The sun is shining here in Cornwall, and it is lovely! It has also come at an especially good time, as I have only been in my job a month and yet, in that time, I have earned two days holiday which I had to take before April 1st. So I decided to take last…… Continue reading The Sun is Shining!
This is one of my favourite recipes, we have it often in our house. It is perfect for using up the leftovers from a roast chicken. It is a Pioneer Woman recipe from her book Dinner time, which I love, I have made numerous meals from recipes in this book! As usual I have eaten…… Continue reading Chicken Pot Pie
First of all another apology I haven’t posted in a while. I am finally getting into a routine at work and this week I feel like I haven’t been too brain dead when I have gotten home! I have been deciding on my next craft projects, bakes and my partner and I have been visiting…… Continue reading Lamb and Chickpea fritters!
First of all an apology for the lack of posting. I started my new job this week and I have been shattered learning the new processes of a totally different profession! Some time ago I started wondering if teaching was what I wanted to for the rest of my working life. After losing a few…… Continue reading Happy St. Piran’s Day!
I made this delicious chocolate cake the other day. It is so moreish and tasty and so simple to make! What makes it special is that it’s deliberately under-baked and has no raising agents, keeping the middle gooey. The word ‘kladd’ means ‘sticky’ in Swedish, and it really is very sticky indeed. The photo does not…… Continue reading Kladdkaka (Swedish sticky chocolate cake) 30 mins to make, serves 8
Do you ever find yourself itching to do something crafty but with very little thought of what to actually do? I found myself in this predicament today. I am desperate to do something new but I am feeling very uninspired. I decided to raid the millions of unopened Mollie Makes free crafty gifts I own.…… Continue reading Crochet Charm Bracelets.
Sorry I have not been so communicative folks, it has been half term and the partner and I have been spending some quality time together. It has been a fairly quiet half term holidays, we had my brother up to stay one night which was good. I did a Mexican feast and tried cooking authentic…… Continue reading Totally in love with Totnes.
There is nothing like a Sunday walk to blow the cobwebs away. It was a lovely day yesterday, and made even better by the fact that it is half term and no school on Monday so no planning/marking. We started off by walking through the churchyard in St Teath, where I saw those beautiful crocuses…… Continue reading The end of Winter is nigh.
