...and busy times in the kitchen
As well as a flurry of garden activity there's also been a flurry of kitchen activity over the past few days with baking and cooking galore. Over the weekend I opened my Red Velvet Chocolate Heartache book for the first time and had a cupcake baking session. All the cakes in the book have vegetables included within them and I made some orange and lemon cupcakes with butternut squash and some raspberry and elderflower cupcakes with courgette. Not sure the presentation's quite there to open up a cupcake business to rival Lola's or Treacle yet but both were delicious and vanished suprisingly fast! Also going on in the kitchen we've been baking foccacia and making roasted pepper soup for lunches at work.
