This gallery contains 1 photos.

Today’s farmers’ market was awesome – it had all my favourite stall-holders, all my favourite foods, all my favourite everything.  And I could only stay for about ten minutes. Let me tell you a story… Last night (and, in fact, … Continue reading

This gallery contains 1 photos.

I’m back!  I’ve survived my exam (though I’m still annoyed with myself for getting nervous and going flat – something I have never done before and hope never to do again), and I even have some videos from my practice … Continue reading

This gallery contains 1 photos.

I bet you thought this post would be about wedding cakes.  Nope.  Not this time.  It turns out that after living and breathing and, of course, baking wedding cakes for most of the last week, I am really, really over … Continue reading

Farmer’s Market Post: Halloween without Pumpkins

This gallery contains 1 photos.

Farmers’ Market – Pumpkin Parade!

This gallery contains 1 photos.

Andrew says that seven pumpkins is not a parade. I say it is a parade. In fact, I say, it’s a pumpkin *army*. The little ones are the infantry, of course… Also, how about that strange, mushroom-shaped one?  Apparently it … Continue reading

This gallery contains 2 photos.

I thought we wouldn’t be able to go marketing this week.  I assumed that most stallholders would be doing Easter things and that there would be no market.  But when I hopped online on Friday to see if there was … Continue reading
