My mum is flying to America tomorrow to visit my brother for the first time since he moved there. My Mum is very, very scared of flying so this is a HUGE deal for her. I know that once she is there, she will have the best time ever and I have given her a long list of places to visit (mainly involving cake or cook shops - together with a list of things to buy for me!!!) Good luck Mum - you will love New York!
Mike recently sent through these photos of him and Mum working on their allotment setting potatoes - they even have a proper tractor! It is such a lot of work for them both but I think they enjoy it and we certainly benefit with lots of free vegetables! Roll on summer!
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
