This week PlayPennies loves...Cooking, Cakes and Children.
I'm chuckling away here as I think about Lynne Truss' 'Eats, Shoots and Leaves' title; how one misplaced, or omitted, comma can change everything - you see I originally wrote 'Cooking Cakes and Children' - a blog by the gnarly old woman of Hansel and Gretel fame perhaps *grin*
If you like to read reviews in blogs then you'll be ok with Cooking, Cakes and Children - I'm not a particular fan of them as it's not what I read a blog for, I want to read about the family and what they get up to, so when a blog is more review than blog well, sorry I'm just not interested.
However, I HAD to share Cooking, Cakes and Children with you, if for nothing else, for THIS CAKE alone - it's quite easily the best teddy bear birthday cake I've ever seen; I'm totally mesemerised by him!
There are all sorts of recipes for you to try - like these dairy-free blueberry muffins; my resolve NOT to bake and then spend the rest of the afternoon eating cake was doing rather well until I came across this recipe for Sticky Ginger Cake; utterly lethal with hot custard, don't say I didn't warn you!
There are various other gems of posts hiding among the reviews - knitting projects, how to make things like a fairy bed from a cardboard box and so on, you just have to do a bit of scrolling and that's not so hard now, is it.
