I decided to start this blog as I am a keen baker. Because of this I decided to bake for a Home Industry which I did for about a year. It was hard work and eventually it took all the joy out of baking when I was in the kitchen sometimes for 14 hours at a time.
I now bake only when I entertain, or when I want to keep the biscuit barrel full (hence the name of my blog!). I have collected recipes for about 40 years and have a huge collection of recipe books and magazine pages in dozens of files.
Bear with me if there is not much to look at in the beginning but I would like to photograph the end results and this will take time as I won’t be baking every day. Eventually I might expand with savoury dishes as well but this is a start. Feel free to leave any comments!
This blogging business is new to me (and entails a huge learning curve!) so bear with me until I get it the way I want it.
Having said that, watch out for my first recipe which is my favourite rusk recipe.
