GemmaJF - how on earth did you do that?!!  I had to take a second, third and fourth look! 

Thanks DorsetUk. I like the sound of your Tommy Soup recipe. Right up my street!

Just trying to muster up the energy to go to work - I'd rather be baking and gardening. 

PLEASE DONT GO GRANDMA

I'm knackered! Mince pies are hard work! They look very 'home made' (!) 

How on Earth Busy and Dorset made so many is beyond me!

I've not quite mastered neat edges (any tips gratefully received) but by 'eck they taste scrum-diddily-umcious! Little tipple of home made sloe gin went in to them.

I wish I could share the smell in my kitchen with you all!

Thanks Busy-Lizzie. I'm a bit OCD on the cleaning front! 

Im learning a lot here; I've never had clapshot but want to give it a go now!

On the lamb front, I just can't eat it because of the cute factor and the short life. I know it can be contradictory, but it's just one of those things for me.

Oooh show us your mince pies! Im just chilling my pastry. Work in progress.....

Hello Peeps, anyone slaving over a hot stove? Would love to know what you're cooking...I'm making a vat of butternut squash soup using some onions from the garden...here it is, yet to blend though.....going to whip up some tasty little mince pies later with my own twist on the filling. Yum yum, bubble gum!
