Make Eat Get Read Go – August ’14

With Little Baker, the new member of the Butcher Baker family, settling in it’s not leaving lots of time for us, so we’re trying to fit in the odd little thing that makes us happy to try and keep us sane during these sleep-impaired days. 1. Make Botanical drawings with Derwent Watercolour Pencils I’ve been looking …

Introducing the new Butcher Baker member

For the last 9 months I’m sure some of you have noticed the blog’s been a bit different and this is when I confess why. I was expecting a baby. Lily (or Little Baker as she’ll be known on blog) finally arrived 11 days late, 6lb 11oz and within 18.5 hours of being induced. You …

Melba Toast Bruschetta

Any purists need to look away now. This is not an authentic recipe in the slightest. In fact the only fresh item in the recipe is a tomato, that is assuming you don’t count pappy white bread as fresh. It’s a bit of a summery store cupboard standby for lunch that breaks the monotony of …

Make Eat Get Read Go – July ’14

July is the month of birthdays here, lump June in to the mix and we have a rather busy summer. The next month will be filled with celebratory champagne, cake (probably lots of it), some entertaining and guests aplenty. 1. Make Arm knitting I’m officially rubbish at knitting, it’s one of the crafts I really …

The new garden – a year on

We’ve lived here now for over a year so have experienced the garden in all four seasons and this spring and summer is already a stark contrast to last year’s effort. This year we’ve had enough rain to keep the garden lush (and to make our roof leak), but also lots of sunshine to encourage plant …

Make Eat Get Read Go – June ’14

It’s the end of May and after the perfect BBQ weekend a few weeks ago we’re back to rain. Can’t complain too much though because the combination of rain and sun means we’re probably going to have a bumper year in the garden for soft fruits. Even the grapevine seems to be ahead of schedule …

Carrot and Ginger Cakes

Ginger and Carrot Cakes with Ginger Cheesecake Icing

Don’t be too shocked. This is the first baking recipe I’ve featured on the blog for a while. I thought I owed you one. It took me until I was an adult to appreciate vegetables in cake. Pre 2001 I thought carrot cake was evil stuff. It’s now on the top list of cakes I …
