I really don't intend this to become some sort of food blog, i promise. However, i love making food. In fact, I love food full stop.

I finished some overdue uni work, and decided to treat myself to a day of festivities and cooking.

Yes, festivities.

If you like Christmas, start now and make it last longer!
If Lee would let me, my Christmas tree would have gone up by now.

  2. I love food posts!! And wow, check out that Rocky Road. Amazing. I'm wheat intolerant, so when I go home home (home is London, home home is Yorkshire, it's v confusing) Mum buys me things like gluten free mince pies and only allows me to eat them!! Love mince pies and spiced things (like spiced apple juice).
