Re: Perfect cake dough

Some cake mixes can be like a batter to look at rather than a dough, I make a chocolate cake which is runny when you poor it into the tin but sets to a lovely moist cake. Trust your sisters recipe and carry on.

Re: Boxing Day Headcount

Feel for you poor souls with quagmires. Cauliflower technically OK.... :lol: :lol:

Daffs at this time of year are early varieties. If you check out the catalogues you'll find they generally list them in order of flowering. Although warm weather helps to bring them forward, not by that much.

Vinca Green Hellebore And a couple of roses; Compassion and Alberic Barbier Also spotted a bit of wild pink campion that had popped up under a shrub. Seems pretty much the usual for this time of year, daffs a...

And another thing...

Adverts. Can anyone make sense of perfume adverts? How about that chap who drives into the desert to, for some unknown macho reason, bury his bit of bling? Quite apart from his appalling shovel technique where he chucks sand over his own head (someone send him a copy of KG) why would that make you b...

Re: Early Winter Bits and Bobs.

Sounds a good list Pa Snip. For the first time in 30 years I'm not cooking Christmas dinner, No.2 son and his good lady are cooking at their place. I'm looking forward to it as I know it will be a good meal but I feel slightly lost as though there is something I should be doing! I am in charge of br...

Re: Coffee Shops

I don't begrudge people sitting in coffee shops but there were a lot of people of non-retired age in there (without laptops!!) and I never seem to find the time... :( Just wondered how they managed it! I suppose so much shopping is done on the internet that some shops have become superfluous and at ...

Re: Early Winter Bits and Bobs.

Rolls rose and cooked, cake is yummy.
