Yeah. That’s the sort of week I like. More sunny days. Less rain. Baked goods at work to raise money for charity (happy to help). I had a pistachio and rose cupcake and a rosemary, parmesan and sun-dried tomato elephant ear. Both were yummy. I’ve found a recipe for the elephant ear thing and I’ve added that to the list of baking.
Talking of baking, I have been gorging myself on series two of The Great British Bake off. Here, it has been a while since I last baked (amazing how low confidence can affect you) but I’ve picked a recipe for next weekend.
It’s Shrove Tuesday. And the Other Half is currently slaving away in the kitchen… making pancakes.
Things are looking up.
Links to peruse. Enjoy!
