    Love Hate Really

    It has become something of a ritual to do some

    Sunday baking. I'm about to start baking an upside-down nectarine and blueberry cake. After re-discovering the recipe a couple of weeks ago I tried it out it and it was eaten up within minutes! So I'm sooooo eager to have it again today!

    I mostly love baking

    Made With Sugar

    Baking has always relaxed my mind and gives me a sensation of accomplishment. You start with basic ingredients and the creations are absoultly numerous.  It is always in the kitchen, I remember growing up, that I held my best conversations about life with my grandmother. She...

    I can't bake, but I enjoy it.

    :D I like messing up with the recipe. Sometimes it turns out good, the other time it turns out to be a disaster :D

    I started doing the odd bake here
