I do not bake…

I am not much of a baker, I must say. I do not do cakes, I have not done too many pies in my day, not many baked goods, well, you get the picture. On Friday I was going a bit stir crazy, so I decided to make some bread. I made the dough, but…… Continue reading I do not bake…

There were days when I couldn’t believe it was ‘already Wednesday’ but then there were definitely a few times when I remember thinking, “how is it not Friday yet?” I celebrated the arrival of Friday morning with a cinnamon scone: Wednesday…… Continue reading A TGIF Scone…
