Comfort from leftovers
It's been a long while since my last post. Life got in the way as usual. I'm still not baking much, but today I cooked. Not for me but for my brother. Something my mother used to make for us whenever she had excess string hoppers on hand. The measurements i...

A solitary candle
... and Apple Cake for my birthday. As usual I took photos of the cake au naturel  and it looks pretty naked though swaddled lovingly in baking paper. Naked and plain-looking though it is, it is still one of the most scrumptious cakes I've ever eaten. I sne...

Season's swan song?
Handmade German Christmas ornament The Christmas carols are still playing. At least in my car. Though in reality Epiphany is here and most Christmas things are down and put away. Mine included. Still, I am holding on to the belief that Christmas will truly ...

Butter sugar love
There's nothing more exciting than plotting what cakes and biscuits to bake for Christmas. For me anyway. The moment December descends, I'm almost always seized by a certain madness involving butter, sugar, flour, eggs and generous lashings of vanilla.    T...

The day before Christmas Eve
It's the eve of Christmas Eve. The last of the baking is done and put away. Brightly twinkling lights ushered in the Carollers this evening and my gold-y table-top tree from Ikea is finally out.  Tomorrow I'll take out the Holy Family from their wrappings a...

Bodrum
Is there anything to say about Bodrum ? A lot I daresay, but the time's not ripe and I'd like to get my Christmas posts up soon so I can start feeling all properly Christmassy.  I'll leave you with a couple of rather boring photos and hopefully you'll wish ...

Akyaka... and the best day ever
Akyaka ... so much to say and I don't know how to say it all. It was indescribable to say the least. There's nothing much by way of grand history here, but it's special nonetheless.  As it was the tail-end of summer when we were there, it was full of local ...
