OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

When we made the turn off towards This and That on Soap Street in Manchester, Beardy Fiance gave me a weird look.  “Are you sure we’re in the right place?” he asked.  “There is no way this is the right street.” I always enjoy a visit to Manchester.  It’s a very different city than London, […]

Hello Kitty Baking Book

Surely I can’t be the only person who was in shocked denial to realise that Hello Kitty is apparently not a cat.  It’s true!  I’m a cat lover (and always enjoy having a kitty around the house), so I was a bit disappointed to realise that Hello Kitty is actually a little girl – and […]

Lemon curd rolls 1

I’m pretty sure every planning a wedding, ever, says the same thing.  “Oh no, I won’t be a bridezilla at all.  All that matters to me is that we’re with everyone we love, having a good time.  Nothing else matters at all.”  And while I haven’t had a screaming match with my mother or a […]

I’m welcoming my favourite guest poster back again, Beardy Mum!  As you can see from the review, there’s a reason this review was a bit of a family project – this is definitely a cookbook I’ll be saving to pass onto future family members! Beardy Baker’s dad has some amazing cousins all of  whose names […]

Blue Raspberry Krispie Treats 1

I think I made these treats with hopes of conjuring summer.  Despite the much-repeated adage […]

Sprinkles cupcakes

I judge cities by the quality of their cupcakes.  Look, I know that’s not a popular criteria (other people use green spaces, economy, public transport) and it’s not that I don’t take all of that into account – it’s just that I think none of that is as important as being able to get a […]
