I have three loves in life (other than the obvious – and somewhat cliché – family, friends, shoes etc.) and these are:
… Music …
… and Baking.
Baked goods are the food of my tummy; books are the food of my imagination and mind; and (yes – you probably guessed it) music is the food of my soul. Without these three things I think I would internally combust within 24 hours, give or take an hour or two.
You may ask yourself why I originally start this blog about baking? Well it’s simple really – I never got to bake as a child; my mum didn’t want us to be able to make, and thus eat, any cakes. So when a friend took pity on me and taught me how to bake a cake, and when another friend bought me the Hummingbird Bakery recipe books, I needed an excuse to try them all out. What could have been better than a blog-based challenge? My mission, therefore, is:
To attempt any recipe that is weird, wonderful or wacky; healthy or unhealthy; intriguing or intensely tasty-looking.
