BLACKBERRY & GINGER CREAM CHEESE LOAF

By | 11 Comments

  This Blackberry & Ginger Cream Cheese Loaf is all about the berry and there’s not a hint of any of chocolate in sight ” I swear”.   You know I think I might actually prefer baking with berries over chocolate. There is so much choice with berries, the flavour possibilities are endless. In the summer we have our lovely…

  Well last weekend was the best.  I got to spend it in TK-MAXX.  Ok I’m exaggerating a little. It was only a couple of hours on a Saturday, but I was on my own and I could spend as much time as I wanted to wander around on a little treasure hunt. Yes I did manage to find something…

After being totally “baked out “ over Christmas I took a little baking hiatus! It’s been over two weeks and to be completely honest I’m surprised I lasted this long,  but just because I wasn’t “baking”- I couldn’t stay away all together.   I have spent the past few weeks devising new recipes and doing some research into publishing a…

Last Night my eldest Son sat us down to show us his new incredible ” Magic Card Trick“. Nine out of ten times these never ever work and the one time they do he thinks he’s the next Dynamo. His fascination with magic cards tricks knows no bounds, of course I blame his Nana for this. From the time he…
