While on the subject of domesticity, I bet you didnt know it was National Baking Week from the 20th to 26th October.
Take a look at the website and be inspired to bake.
How about Philadelphia garlic & herb crusted salmon, individual chicken, leek and Ham Pies, chunky walnut bread or easy orange & pecan muffins.
All these recipes and many more are listed.
The delicious looking choclate fudge cake above is one my own, taken from my favourite baking book, How to be a domestic Goddess, by Nigella Lawson. It never fails me.
