  It’s  that time of year again, my absolute favorite, GREAT BRITISH BAKE OFF aka GBBO time.  The only time when I take control of the TV remote.

I love everything to do with Christmas – the decorating, wrapping presents, old  b/w Christmas movies, but if you ask me what my most favorite thing is about Christmas – I would have to say it’s Christmas baking.
