Baileys Cheesecake & Family Fun

My nephew came to visit this weekend. It was lovely having him stay and we had lots of fun. On Saturday we went pony trekking (don’t worry, I just walked) and I have some lovely photos which I will share with you later. My nephew enjoys baking, I think he must get that from me as my sisters idea of baking is icing a digestive. I knew he would be the perfect person to help me with a recipe I [click here to read on]

Steamed Sponge Recipe

As some of you may know, I used to write another blog for the shop where my husband used to work. It was a mixture of old fashioned recipes, silly videos of my attempts at sausage making and behind the scenes stories. This blog isn’t around anymore and, although the videos are still on my You Tube channel, the rest of the posts have gone to the website in the sky.
