The Husband’s Chilli

I’ll let it be known right now that I am very much a control freak in my kitchen. I am in charge of my kitchen supplies and inventory and that’s that. To my Husband this translates as living with a nightmare! I pretty much do all of the cooking and although the Husband can actually cook, I … Continue reading

A year in cupcakes

Chocolate Pots

I have gone underground as of late – mainly due to working like an absolute dog over the past few weeks (not so fun) and also spending the best part of a week with Martini Man for his 30th celebrations. (much fun!) It seems that my dear old blog seems to suffer whenever life gets … Continue reading
