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

It was my friend Jess' birthday at the weekend. Jess loves Tequila as much as I do - we have even been known during a Safari supper in our village to have Tequila, sliced limes, salt and shot glasses in my handbag as we went from house to house for our supper!! So what choice did I have but to make a Tequila themed cake for Jess' birthday??!!! Filled with Tequila and lime curd and clotted cream, topped with green Tequila and lime icing and decorated with little margarita glasses and pictures which aptly said "Tequila, Helping Women lower their standards for years!". Part of Jess' present was this seaside picture which I had stitched for her with a little crab and a whale weather vane. I managed to stitch it in an afternoon and was quite pleased with how it turned out! I hope you all had a lovely weekend too xxx
