A little over a year ago I set myself the challenge of baking my way through Mary Berry's Baking Bible.
Only a couple of weeks after I started it I discovered I was expecting Fraser. And then the pregnancy sickness hit me! Even just the thought of cakes made me feel ill for all 9 months and so I only baked the essentials - the usual free from bakes for Calum and Alasdair.
I had to stop scrolling through my Pinterest feed, usually filled with lots of inspiration for yummy cakes, as even looking at cake made me feel sick!
I didn't want to forever associate the Baking Bible with how horrible I felt and so I postponed my challenge.
Those of you who followed my pregnancy updates will remember how out of character I felt by this dislike of sweet things. It wasn't new to me though, as in each pregnancy I have felt the same.
Now that Fraser is 6 months old, and in some sort of a routine, I'm ready to take on the challenge again. I should also add that he was more than worth every moment of that sickness.
So, here's what I tried out this week....
Firstly, some Double Chocolate Cookies.
So that's the roundup for this week. I'm looking forward to seeing what comes out of the kitchen this coming week!
