Hello and welcome to my very first posting on my new blog. I have another blog I have come to the conclusion that I needed another place for my up and coming cooking exploits. Well I say exploits....erm does that describe my cooking, I suppose not really. I have been cooking/baking since my early 20's, years ago now and have always been very keen. But when my children left home and me and darling hubby became empty nesters, well my love for the kitchen over the last couple of years became purely functional. I suppose I lost my mojo....I mean I still cooked for me and hubby and when the family come round, but that real excitement of going food shopping and getting all those ingredients together somehow eluded me. Then we decided to have a kitchen refit and the gas boiler was not efficient one day I was out and popped into a Aga shop....well whats a girl to do....I fell madly in love....a Aga on its own would have been wonderful, but a boiler was needed as well. So a beautiful red Rayburn complete with central heating boiler was installed and woosh my love for cooking was reignited. Although it has been a slow process I must admit...but it has and is returning and I find I have more interest than before. So this is my very first posting and I hope that I can post thing I must get used to and remember to do is take photos....anyway thank you for stopping by and Hello and Welcome.


  1. Who wouldn't love a cooker like that!! I long to live in a climate where I too can have an Aga. We live in balmy North Carolina at present, but I'm hopeful . . . Can't wait to see what you cook up!

  2. Cool.My new Rangemaster 110 really worth all the effort. This new gas cooker is now the king in the kitchen.
