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

I thought I would share with you our Halloween celebrations! A ghoolish night was had by all! Baby pumpkin lanterns lit the fence. Rosie and Lily were scary witches. Josh was a spider and Miles a skeleton. Baby Zara, a pumpkin princess - how cute do they all look! We played pass the spooky parcel, had a Halloween pumpkin pinanta and ghost races and then feasted on some chocolate pumpkin nest cakes, spooky marshmallows, ghost cakes and a halloween cake with witches hat candles! After all that, the ghoolish revelers were rather sleepy and wandered off home up the lane with their torches and buckets of candy. What a fun evening!

Hi Hannah,

This totally irrelevant but I wish to send Gareth and Amy an encouraging email regarding internet-led "romances". Have been happily wed to a Quebecois who joined me Down Under for the last 7 yrs...and yes there was some $$$ involved...just wanted to share.

Love your blog which is how I found theirs,

Sounds like everyone had a fantastic time. I hadn't thought that Hallowe'en is celebrated in England with Guy Fox day and all. Even here in Canada fewer children go out on Hallowe'en night trick or treating. They are moving over to community parties and parties at home like this fantastic event you put together:D

Looks like you had a spooktacular Halloween Hannah! Lots of goodies there and such sweet little tricksters! Sadly we don't get any trick or treaters here.

It looks like a good time was had by all! I loved the spider costume, and the cupcakes, and the pinata! Did you make the pinata yourself? I made one once for my daughter's 8th birthday (a Pikachu pinata) - it was great fun to make.
