I have been having a little dabble in the kitchen every now and then. I am by no means within a healthy weight range and know that I should watch what I eat but do you know what? I don't want to.....! Ha! There!
Me and the Mr do not have many luxuries in our life as we just cannot afford them and food is the one thing that I do try and enjoy so we do our best to cook things that are nice.
So, I started watching Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall Everyday series. I truly do love this man. I don't know why because I don't find him sexy attractive or anything, I think I just like the fact that he drives an old jeep, he looks like he's wearing old clothes, he has a scabby bit of thread tied round his wrist that looks like one of his kids made him a friendship bracelet. He grows his own veg. He has the most amazing house. What more can I say.
Anyhow, on one episode Hugh is trying to encourage people to make their own bread. This is right up my street.........something we eat everyday.........that I can make.........and save money..........BRILLIANT!
And here is what I made........
Pretty good eh? They weren't as light in the middle as I would have liked but I'll get there.
I also baked a delicious chocolate cake for my niece's birthday.
I was quite impressed with myself as I have never made a cake like it before ever. This was done with a recipe I got online!
Have you baked anything scrummy lately?
