Hello everyone.

Sorry (again!) for the absence… it’s not that I haven’t been baking – I have, but since starting this blog I’ve become quite critical of everything I make and fussy about whether or not my recipes are good enough to post.

The Liebster Award

Hey gang,

Today’s blog is going to be a bit different… I’ve had a bit of a hectic week, so I haven’t had much time for baking.
