IMG_3427In 1957 our Grandpa, Alf Denning, opened a hardware shop on the Bristol Road in Northfield, Birmingham. It was called Denning’s Hardware and sold everything from a single nail, to wheelbarrows. As kids we often used to visit the shop when we went up to Birmingham to see our grandparents. I remember running round the shop with the sticker gun and using it to “price” ourselves! Click here to see what tools are for sale!

P1200458

Last year was a bumper year for blackberries, I’m lucky enough to be surrounded by beautiful countryside in Kent and plenty of hedgerows filled with blackberries. I think I picked around 20kg last year and really enjoyed trying all sorts of recipes to use them up. I’ve been out a couple of times this year so it’s time to start making some goodies from all of my pickings. I found a recipe for walnut biscuits and adapted it to sandwich the biscuits together with a yummy blackberry and white chocolate ganache. Click here to try this lovely recipe.

 When I was little, every night before bed I would ask to be read the same book: The Very Hungry Caterpillar. For some reason it was my favourite book – maybe because it was all about food! What did the Very Hungry Caterpillar eat today?

photo (90)Time for another installment of the “party biscuit” cupcakes: Jammy Dodger cupcakes. These were just a mix of recipes I’ve made previously – my usual vanilla cupcakes, filled with jam, topped with vanilla buttercream, and my recipe for jammy bodger biscuits made into mini biscuits.

red nose jammy bodgerLast week I saw an email about a cake sale in the office today for Comic Relief so sent an email to say I’d bake something to sell. I then discovered there was a bake off too so I thought if I was going to bake something to sell I might as well enter it into the competition. There were various categories to enter so I decided I would make cupcakes and enter the cupcake and showstopper categories and then if I had time I would bake something for the biscuit category. I managed to finish work slightly early so I had plenty of time while the cupcakes were cooling. Choosing which biscuits to make was pretty easy – for Red Nose Day there’s only one type of biscuit which is suitable… Red Nose Jammy Bodgers!

gingerbread mittens

On Thursday night last week there was an amber warning in place for heavy snowfall overnight and all day Friday. It was also bitterly cold. Despite turning the heating on and having the fire on as soon as I got home, it still felt cold so I decided that in order to warm the house up a bit more, the best option was to turn the oven on. And if the oven is on then it’s rude not to bake something. So I decided to try out a new recipe for gingerbread biscuits – they keep for ages and they’re perfect dunked into tea. I cut some of it up to build some sledges and then the rest I used to make mittens.

Do you need some mittens to warm up? Yes I do!

cookie monster cupcake

I only started this blog at the end of September 2012 but I’d done a lot of baking before that – I hadn’t realised quite how much until I started drafting this post. Although I’ve manged to post some of the things I made at the start of the year, I doubt they’ll all make it onto here in their entirety. So, here’s a summary of my favourite ones from each month….
