It is a while since our kitten Peapod appeared on this blog and I wanted to share this photo of her with you so you could
see how much she has grown - she is almost a proper cat now although is still at that slightly gangly stage! She spends her days chasing anything that moves - flies and butterflies in the garden and rats and mice in the farm barns next door (she is excellent and we could probably rent her out as a rat catcher). She has taken to giving kisses when she wants feeding, snuggling up with me on the sofa when I am trying to sew and even trying to do handstands on the kitchen cupboard (see below!) - just so adorable!
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
