And while I'm on a roll here as this new posting app is so easy, here's some non eating baking done during the week...can you guess from my drawing what it's for?

Trying to perfect my Gnocchi, third attempt with this one as it was delicious!


Trying out a new posting app on my iPad...Hope it works out! This little box I had put away for some herbs to go in on my kitchen bench, but I have decided its much better with a few pretty fabrics in my sewing room!

I have also been enjoying some time in the kitchen trying out a new Banana cake was so yumm!

I also splurged on a LynetteAnderson designed iPhone case...pretty cute, couldn't resist the one with a chook!

So much lighter and fresher...I love it and so happy with how it looks now!

Lots happening here, my lap top has arrived back from being fixed, had two trips away so I am hoping that posting will be a bit more frequent now:)
 and so pleased i can now write under the photo! lol. I have been baking up a storm and putting my new oven and cooktop to the test. Must admit that the induction cooktop took a bit of getting used to, but I love it now

Its been really cold here and perfect pumpkin soup weather 
And lastly a recently finished crochet project
I hope that where ever you are that you are keeping warm!

Well it seems I need some more practice at blogging as the text on my previous post didn't appear! So here's a couple of photos of some crochet flowers I made from Mollie Makes magazine that I made into a garland!
Loved making these flowers
