25th April 2011

I like to combine my new photography passion with the old one  ( cooking and baking ).

Baking is fun.  Its easy.  Its therapeutic and its relaxing.....

What could be more yummy than having the house smell of freshly-baked cakes.

23rd April 2011

this has been on the menu in our household for the past 15 years, and is still a firm favourite. The pasta is in a tomato and basil sauce.  Add a generous blob of whipped cream on top.  Sprinkle with some freshly grated parmesan cheese, and pop under the grill until its golden brown and bubbling.
