I’m having some neighbours over for a Christmas party this afternoon.  Obviously, the most important part of a Christmas party is the menu. Mulled Wine I’m going with Delia’s recipe.    I like’d the sound of Jamie’s, but then Jamie ruined it by asking me to make a syrup.  Sod off, Jamie.  Mulled wine should [...]

Weekend Wonderings

It’s December tomorrow, folks. I’m officially Christmassing up. I’m making a Yule log for the first time this year. And by that, I mean Phil is making a Yule Log and I’m going to decorate it because I can’t be trusted to do complicated baking without turning the kitchen into an apocolyptic-icing-sugar-wasteland.

Cake. Cake cake cake. This recipe for Grapefruit Sandwich Cake is by the lovely Beca from Great British Bake Off. I’m incredibly sad that she’s gone, I’ve spent this week very confused about where my loyalties now lie. I loved Ruby to start with yet now I want to bop her on the head with [...]

I was doing the weekly Tesco shop (who am I kidding, I’m not that organised, it was the ”there’s-nothing-in-the-fridge emergency shop”), and wandering down the aisles, and I happened upon this post-it note, left upon some chocolate: Always a lover of a good quote, intrigued, I set about finding out exactly what @TheHopefulNotes is.  And readers?  If you’re [...]
