Little Baker Picks – December

Didymos Didytai When LB was little I carried her in a stretchy sling from Victoria SlingLady. Now she’s bigger and heavier I’ve upgraded to a Didymos Didytai to give more support for both me and LB. I like that I can carry LB on my front, back or side with it plus it comes in …

Christmas Pudding Rum Truffles

These truffles are based on a rum truffle recipe I used to make and eat as a child. Often we would visit Mellors, a local bakery, and pick a cake. My favourite was a rum truffle and I can remember it being the size of my fist. Of course I now know that rum truffles are …

Saturn (tomato & basil) rolls

Cottage cheese purchases are often on a healthy kick whim. It’s opened, spooned on a jacket spud then the rest of the pot risks being forgotten about at the back of the fridge. This recipe uses up this languishing pot and is perfect for a quick lunchtime bread as no yeast is required. As part of …

Make Eat Get Read Go – November ’14

Make Salt dough In reality I would like my “make” to say time, but as I can’t magic time out of thin air salt dough will have to do. Salt dough is easy and uses basic kitchen ingredients. I’m going to make a batch to get some Little Baker foot and hand prints using this …

Our first family holiday – Center Parcs Sherwood Forest

My family has visited Center Parcs Sherwood Forest since the early 1990s. Back then the accommodation was nowhere near as plush as it is now and I can remember the beds being simply covered in sheets and blankets and you had to make your own bed. We didn’t care, as long as we got to …
