Erin's Golden Millet Crêpes

Raspberry Redcurrant Jam & Victoria Sponge

I like mine with very crispy streaky bacon, some banana or strawberries and lashings of maple syrup.

The Poires au Chocolat 2014 Survey

Last year I decided to try writing a reader survey to gather some answers and thoughts on some questions I'd been mulling over to do with the blog and blogging in general.

Introducing the Glossary

It got me thinking about recipe language and how the words convey a meaning that can be converted into action. How I can write an instruction and hope and expect that anyone will be able to replicate my movements and technique just from seeing that word.
