Those hot cross buns I made for Fresh From the Oven were soooo nice and I must’ve been eating two every day. But they don’t seem to be going down and they’re going a bit dry. So I decided to give them a new lease…

Fresh From the Oven April Challenge — Hot Cross Buns

Ashleigh’s gone to bed. James putting things on eBay. It’s 2 o’clock and all these surely means I have to make a tea time treat! We have lots of bananas left in the fruit bowl due to Ash’s demand for them, so banana cake is…

Mushroom & Pea Curry

Mushroom & Pea Curry

Today I was feeling a bit down. But nothing a good dinner won’t fix! I decided it’s not a day for killing today, so we’re having mushroom and pea curry. Sometimes I think Ashleigh likes curry more than I do, and he can certainly eat…
