Another Obsession.............x

Another Obsession.........................

Seriously though, how good is the The Great British Bake Off????????????????????????????
I love cooking and baking, but I also have huge kitchen envy...yes, yes I know the kitchen isn't real, it's in a tent for goodness sake I hear you cry. BUT my dream kitchen would have to be of a pastel colour, with an island in the middle for teas and chats with pals, a HUGE a contrasting pastel colour, and perhaps Mary Berry living in make all the yummy treats she makes so well.

Last night was biscuit night, macaroons, brandy snaps ( these, though for me are yuck ).....uh it's like a granny in her cottage on redbull. I love it.

Ok, ok, there just so happens to be a nice young looking chap on it too, that I might just have a pervy-he's younger than me-I love his hair- and he bakes!-crush on him......But this show is fab, if you've miss out so far, then try and catch up with it on the must.
How many "but"'s can I fit into this post?! But, but, but, but,butt.

So with homemakin' an' a bakin' on my mind, some jams just had to be made. Actually it was Mr.Q's idea to go foraging for blackberries, and stock up the pantry.....Autumn does that doesn't it? As soon as the temperature drops, I feel like I need to start squirrelling things away.

Behind the a mess of a pantry. Just so you know. I regularly have bags of sugar and flour drop at my feet as I open the door.......................and there is always a rogue clove of garlic that I find on every did it get there? I have no idea.....


  1. There must be a lot of jam-making going on at the moment - have seen more folks than ever before picking blackberries this year - maybe just saving money cos of the recession? Love your blog.

  2. Hiya, like you I am LOVING the bake off, its such a visual eye candy programme! Your jam looks great too, and your blog!

  3. Ok, so now I REALLY have to watch this Bake Off prog with lovely kitchens, eye candy of the male variety and all with a granny vibe!! Sounds terrific :)
    I'd love to try a bit of jam making too! I'm not much of a cook myself but I want to try my hand at a bit of baking, etc... Your jam looks scrummy by the way!

    Hope you're having a lovely weekend...
