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

Work has taken over this week - I have so much to do and there are just not enough hours in the day. I have to leave for a meeting at 6.30am tomorrow and then return to do a cookery demo at 6.30 in the evening. I am needing to be very organised but am failing miserably. However a nice thing to look forward to is that my sundae book is arriving for final proof reading in a couple of days - it will be the first time I see all the pictures and I can't wait (I have only seen about 6 so far!) Luckily even though life is a little stressful, Peapod is always on hand for a good snuggle. She has taken to sleeping on my bed every night - I think because it is too cold for her hunting expeditions! I just love these pictures of her "reading" Little Grey Rabbit - one of my favourite books from when I was little. She gave up with the reading in the end and decided to have a little nap instead!

I loved Little Grey Rabbit and her adventures - I think my favourite was the Bonfire Night story, I think LGR did lots of baking :-)

Looks like you have a perfect assistant on hand to help make life less stressful. My studio assistants have been helping me to work hard this week.
