I haven't been baking a whole lot lately, but I have been reading!! I was looking through my cookbooks for some different inspiration and was completely taken with Sue Lawrence's Cook's Tour of Scotland(I mentioned it here). When I did an author search on amazon I discovered she had a baking book!! Its out of print, but recently so and bought a copy for 3.60 including shipping and handling. There really isn't anything overly special or new, but saying that I have a recipe from it lined up for later this month.
Yes, you read that right, I plan my baking like I do my weekly meal plans! :0) I usually try to bake at least once a week, but sometimes life gets in the way. Or I make something I've already posted.
I do have a busy weekend ahead- delicious magazine (UK) is celebrating it's 100th issue! Inside are 2 cake recipes one by Mary Berry the other by Paul Holywood. I plan to make both cakes and test them out on Mr. Knightly's co-workers and at my preschool meeting. Closing date is April 1st to enter your votes in a chance to win Marks & Spencer vouchers!! There are lots of other giveaways too! I would love to win Heston's book, Kenwood Mixer, or the Pastry Class!!!
In 2016 I will be planning a Leap Year Party and will probably use some of the cute ideas I found here.
Wiki! I found the left picture here, the book picture is from amazon and the google picture is from the Google home page! Happy Leap Year Day!!
