Last weekend I decided to try making some oat bread. I thought I would share the recipe with you. This is how I made it, slightly modified from the book I got it from, though I have given the full quantities not the half amounts that I used. You start with 8oz wholemeal bread flour,… Read More Oat Bread recipe
Well not really rocks, though the ground does look a bit rocky in this photograph! It’s another of my occasional posts about my garden and baking. These are a few cyclamen that I planted years ago but are still managing to come up despite all the changes. I am also rejoicing in my sedum spectabile. which is… Read More Lets Rock ‘n’ Roll!
Recently I bought some wholemeal spelt flour to make a spelt loaf. I made a loaf with spelt flour a few years ago and I remember liking the taste, though it may have been white spelt flour that time. I am not sure. I didn’t know where I had got the recipe I used before… Read More Spelt Bread
I made my daughter a set of Celtic Coasters as I wasn’t sure what to make to give her for her birthday and I had a vague memory of promising her some of these coasters in the past. I had intended to make either four or six but when I decided to use all seven… Read More A birthday present!
Been so busy lately thinking about health matters (nothing to worry about everything is fine!) that I forgot all about a montage for June. In June, I told you about the dinosaur I made for my Grandson’s birthday and a Never-Ending card I made for my granddaughter’s birthday. I also had a post about the… Read More Monthly Montage – June

I was… Read More For those who like such things – more flowers and bread

I am pleased to relate that I managed to cope with it all quite easily so I am now officially ‘better’! Of course I did spread preparation out over the weekend and had an… Read More And yesterday was …………. Christmas
In April I once more shared a lot of cooking and flowers. There were the Hot Cross buns and Simnel muffins I made for Easter time and a couple of loaves of bread. The same ideal recipe but first as a Farmhouse loaf and then as more of a Bap shape. Now able to get… Read More April Montage
Had a bit of a funny week. On Monday I saw the consultant prior to my fourth and final chemo cycle. He decided that I should not have the infusion this time, only the tablets which left me both relieved and anxious. Relieved that I wouldn’t have to face the increasingly unpleasant side effects and… Read More Past and future!
I have finally manged to finish the hybrid socks I started after finishing the rainbow ones. Hybrid because I used the left over yarn from my recent mini mochi socks and that left over from the pale rainbow ones I made years ago. Here they are. I was rather pleased that they came out so long… Read More Finally my hybrid socks!
