No this is not one that I have written and published, this is the old and worn and very used book I write my own recipes in for me and whoever wants them. It was given to me by my mum as she has one and she is also a keen cook/baker. When she gave it to me about 20 years ago, she said to use it, write down the stuff that works, use it as a reference book and add to it over the years. I have certainly used it and it is a bit dog-eared now, especially the Christmas Cake page. I have also kept cuttings of recipes from magazines in it over the years and once I have made it then I stick the recipe in the book, with the adaptions and then throw the ragged piece of paper away.
I love this book and anyone who has a love of cooking and baking should go out and get one. Not only that it can be passed from generation to generation too, which is nice. I have of course seen my mums book and to be honest I can not read it, as it is so messy! I don’t think either of my nan’s had one which is a real shame as both were fantastic cooks and it would have been nice to be able to bake like them. Perhaps I should check with my Mum and my Auntie.
In mine, I have everything from how to make Rough Puff to Honey Mustard Chicken Pasta to Squiddy Squares (My own invention, when Brownies went wrong) to Rocky Road and over the coming months I will make the recipes and post the pictures. I may even video it!
I will make the recipes easy to follow and Happy Baking
