Happy New Year

3 Jan

Welcome to 2015 everyone! Hope you’re all sufficiently stuffed to the brim and ready to keep up those New Year resolutions đŸ™‚

I don’t really do resolutions, although I do set myself goals. This year I will aim to be more organised and better with money.

There will also be no excuses for not blogging this year. As a way of sticking to this one, I’ve signed the boyfriend and I up to Foodie penpals.

In terms of what I’ve been up to since last posted, I’ve been doing quite a bit of baking using my new Bake Off book, bought for me by the boyfriend as an early Christmas present (he gave me it in November so I could make him things in the run up to and during Christmas!

I’m not always great with recipe books. I’m one of those ‘flick through and aim to make everything but never get round to it’ types but with this book I was inspired to make loads of the goodies inside.

First on the list was pork, apple and cider sausage rolls, made for a savoury bake sale at work. They were pretty easy to make (helped by the fact I cheated by using ready made pastry!) and tasted delicious. I even had some leftover which I froze and used as stuffing for my Christmas dinner!

Stupidly, I forgot to take pictures of anything else that I made but favourites included frangipan mince pies and ham and parsley pie.

Obviously Christmas is over now but it’s well worth buying yourself a copy ready for next year!

That’s me for now. Hopefully my next post will be my penpals update…
