My sister in law, my cousin and my work friend are all expecting babies early this year. I thought it would be nice to make them a quilt for their babies as well as a pair of booties and matching bibs.I am all set with the quilts but I am now looking for inspiration on baby boots.

I am always on the look out for recipes for Leia that she can make by herself. She is now 8 and hates when I have to do parts of the recipe for her. To be honest I like the fact it teaches her how to cook or bake. And as usual she is so proud of her finished goods…. and of course there is lot’s of genuine praise and mmmmmm’s!
I found this recipe on Pinterest and I wanted to make it straight away! I eventually used this delicious bread to accompany a hot buffet we had a little while ago. Everyone loved it and I can see this will be used for many BBQ’s in the summer. There are so many different versions out there I am not sure which one is the original so I can give credit. Any way I looked at a few and decided on using the ingredients that I liked best…

In 1861Queen Victoria had been on the throne for almost a quarter century, when she suffered the tragic death of her husband, Albert. She was famous for her devotion to him, and would remain in mourning for the rest of her life. In this same year a landmark cookbook was published, Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management, and it included a recipe for "Victoria Sandwiches"
Still a favourite of many! Often served at summer fairs and tea parties.
