For the last few months I've been floundering a bit in Blogland. My blog doesn't really fit into a defined genre, it never has. I can see it becoming in part a parent blog, but for that to happen, we need to become parents and that's in the lap of a God somewhere! Our jobs have changed for both of us and while long term it's a brilliant step forward, for now it means tightening our belts and staying closer to home, so that's put a stop on the travelling/day trip posts that I enjoy doing.
But recently I've dusted off the cookbooks and started to take part in bake-alongs...and I love it! I love baking, I love cooking, I love putting my own slant on a recipe to add something different. Other people seem to like it too and that makes me happy!
So far this week I've gutted and filleted a fish, made egg custard from scratch, made chocolate ganache and had a go at spun sugar (not all for the same recipe)! This weekend I'm going to use my new pasta machine for the first time to make ravioli. My head is in a recipe book for at least an hour every evening and I can't wait to push myself to try something new, something challenging, something inspiring.
My blog won't become an impersonal recipe blog, but I will be showing you what I'm trying out, what works and what doesn't - along with our adventures outside of the kitchen and our home.
I can't wait to get started...I hope you come along for the ride!
