delicious carrot cake recipe!

Hello! Nope, still no baby… My problem is I have thought since last Sunday that the event was imminent; but apparently not.  Ah well.  What do I do when I'm at a loose end? First: read. (At night after the kids are in bed, obviously.) Which is why my knitting and […]

little black book

I have a little black book. No, it's not a lascivious list of old flames. (More's the pity really.) It's a dinner party book. One I started years ago, after I made my very good friends Jodie and Andrew (fabulous foodies) cheesecake for the third dinner party in a row and someone […]
