Baking & making ...

I have a very talented husband, who can whip up a lovely loaf at the drop of a hat.

But never let him bake you a cake, I am in charge when it comes to sponge.  This is my walnut and coffee cake from a couple of weeks back and ...

... my heart stopping quiche, for the quantity of butter in the pastry.  It was literally crying when it came out of the oven.
Tastes wonderful but I doubt if I will make again any time soon, unless I want to shorten my life.  More than one slice and I think I ought to review the life insurance situation.

Have a happy sunny weekend xxx


  1. I wish mine could make bread, to be honest cook something for dinner would help :)! It all looks divine xx

    1. Maybe you could start with something like assemblage eg ham salad! Best of luck, mine is a hard won battle.

  2. My hubby makes fantastic scones, and was cooking tea when I arrived home on Wednesday. Just a couple of the strings to his bow!

  3. I like that balance - one does bread the other does cake, can't be bad.
