Reaching the final of Masterchef 2007 was a rollercoaster of emotion, with huge highs and lows, but I loved every minute and learnt a huge amount. I owe a great deal to John and Gregg who had faith in my ability when I did not believe in myself. Since competing on the programme my life has changed considerably. I now write cookery columns for two magazines, give cookery demonstrations and am just working on my 13th cook book - unlucky number for some but not for me!!! I love all forms of country cooking, using seasonal and locally sourced produce. This blog is to enable me to share with you a few of my recipes and baking ideas. Enjoy Hannah xxxx

This morning before work, I finally finished a baby sampler I have been stitching for my friend's new baby Tom. It has taken a month to finish which is not as quick as I would have liked given that Tom was born at the end of November and my gift is now very late! Still hopefully it is worth the wait. I blame my slowness entirely on the little fish pond and squirrels which took ages to finish as the stitches are so small. If you click on the picture you will get a close up. I just love all the little bees and ladybirds!

Just beautiful, I'm sure it will be cherished forever. I loved the little cardinals, they are my absolute favorite bird.
