Oh yeah, it’s Autumn baby, my favourite time of the year…
The colours, the beautiful crisp autumn days, cosying up of the couch, digging out those warm wooly knits and dreaming of becoming a domestic baking goddess. I say dreaming as I always have a yearning at this time of year to don my apron and bake up a storm but to be honest I rarely do this year is going to be different though (yeah right, I say that every year). Maybe it’s because I have my own personal bun in the oven but I have decided that I need to hone my cooking skills. Nothing too fancy mind but I could really do with polishing up my basic kitchen skills so I thought I would start off with this little gem of blackcurrant and almond cake I found on Pinterest…
Mmmmm, doesn’t that look yummy!
I’m actually going to swap the blackcurrants for blackberries though because I’ve got some I picked a few weeks ago sitting in the freezer and I’ve been racking my brains what to use them for but I think this recipe would be perfect. Check me out – picking wild blackberries and freezing them – yip, that’s just how I roll Anyway, I’ll let you know how it turns out.
On a completely unrelated but equally exciting note, Rene Walrus has been nominated for The VOWS Awards again this year!
So a BIG, MASSIVE thank you to all my wonderful brides who nominated me. You guys totally ROCK!!!
And a big congratulations to all the other nominees, you guys ROCK too. There are too many to list here so head on over to the VOWS homepage and check them out…
I can’t wait for the awards party in November, it’s Vegas theme but I don’t think I’ll fit into a Vegas girl outfit with my ever expanding pregnant waistline. Maybe a fat Elvis??? Well it’s not till the 25th so I’ve still got plenty of time to whip something up.
Happy Autumn folks!
