I will very rarely admit defeat when it comes to recipes. In the last few months I have developed a couple of cake recipes, baked them and failed them. Eventually I got the ingredients and methods rights but that meant a few flat, mushy attempts had to be foiled up and sent to the cake morgue, a.k.a. my bottom freezer drawer.

When it comes to food I am sometimes like the spoiled rich girl that has a walk-in closet full of clothes but feels she has nothing to wear. Some mornings I will open my cupboards over and over, waiting for brownies to magically appear, when I should be cooking all the eggs and porridge oats I have bought for the week, as an encouragement to have full, healthy breakfasts.

Macaroons is one of the treats I absolutely love and don't get to have it very often, because although small treats, their price tag is often not so small.

The freezer situation in our house has caused a few arguments. We have a small apartment and therefore a small fridge-freezer.
I am completely in control of all food related things in our household: the planning, shopping and making. Not because the husband is not interested, but because I take so much enjoyment out of it, and he obviously does not mind.

We've been in this house for over two years now. It's seen us through a wedding, different colour walls and a lot of sleepovers on our sofa.
We've put a lot of effort into making it the perfect little nook, however everyday I stare at the drawers in our kitchen and feel sad to look at the state of our current tea towels. Beyond stained and tatty, I long for the lovely tea towels at TkMaxx but had to restrain myself, because I had already bought the materials to make my own.
