With pretty spring flowers in abundance now, I love to fill the house with flowers. Using jam jars and small glass bottles you only need a few blooms and a little greenery to create a lovely display - for window sills in the bathroom or as a simple table centre piece. If you are entertaining in the garden you can wrap thin garden wire around the neck of a jam jar creating a handle and hang small jars of flowers from trees near your table.
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
