This book:

recently jumped into my trolley during a supermarket trip and now I am slowly working my way through it. Not so handy when you're trying to lose 2 1/2 stone by the end of the year (1 1/2 down already - Yay!) Fortunately, I have more than a few willing volunteers here to help me out!

Our absolute favourite recipe so far has to be the 'Dutch Apple cake' (though it's not like REAL Dutch apple cake you understand.....!!) It has been made at least three times already and I tried it last week with blackcurrants in the bottom instead of apple. Still very delicious, but a bit too soggy!!

Banana bread was good too (went too quickly to photograph!)
Snickerdoodles are next on the list.....


  1. Yum yum! I want to know what Snickerdoodles are!

  2. I have that book and also worked my way through it, our faves are the oat shortbread cookies mmmmmm

  3. Yum. I have the book and I too am trying to lose weight. Cake is my downfall....

  4. i love this book - her cookie recipe always turns out great! (and all the others too!)
