Desserts

As a food blogger, I probably have a slightly different view of being a “foodie.”  So when, on a trip to Philadelphia to meet family friends, they told me that the White Dog Cafe was a foodie kind of place, I was envisioning something like El Bulli!  But what they meant was that it was […]

Tanya Bakes

I am a bit of a nerd.  This I definitely know.  I was probably doomed from the age of 5, at which point Star Trek became my favourite TV show.  I had my own uniform and communicator.  I have strong views about the political system of Star Wars.  My biggest regret from my wedding is […]

Buttermilk fudge 2

As part of our quest to see the UK this year, Beardy Husband and I really wanted to make sure we saw Cornwall.  We’ve heard from many people, both friends and family, that it’s one of the most beautiful parts of the UK and well worth a visit – in fact, the popularity of holiday […]
