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

Rather than buying any new sewing stash (I literally have drawers full of sewing things), I have been "persuaded" (ordered!) by my stitching friend Susan to complete some of my Works in Progress before I buy anything new. My list of Works In Progress is very long!! But I am pleased to report that last night I finished one of my WIP list - this lovely antique effect "Home is where my heart blooms" sampler. The fabric is dyed to make it look old and I think it works really well. I really love this little sampler and although the 2008 date is a stark reminder of when I started this project rather than when I finished it, I can't wait to get it framed and hung on the wall. Susan does this mean I can buy something new now??!!!!
