Food, Glorious Food! (#2014bloggerchallenge)

Hey guys

This #2014bloggerchallenge is all about food! It's been a while since I've written a food related post but today I thought I'd talk about baking. 

I love to cook but I also love to bake. I find it quite relaxing and eating it afterwards (when it has gone well) is definitely enjoyable and when people tell you your food tastes better than the ones they've bought in the shops, it's also flattering to hear.

While I'm at uni I barely bake as I don't really have the time, and I like to use the kitchen without being disturbed which barely happens in a uni house. However, when I'm back home, I like to bake as much as possible.

When I'm in the mood for baking, I tend to look up a recipe online for what I particularly feel like at that moment (or what my brother's request at that moment). However, sometimes, I feel like baking something that I haven't baked before. Luckily for me, my mum kindly surprised me with a recipe book for baking which helps when I'm feeling like that.

I've only made one thing from this book (shortbread) so far but over the summer when I hopefully have a lot more free time I shall tackle a lot more. I'll be sure to post up the results when I do. Next on my list is red velvet cake as when that is made correctly it is delicious!

Just writing this has made me very hungry (probably doesn't help that I haven't eaten yet) so I'm off to eat.
Thank you for reading and do leave your favourite recipe recommendations and your #2014bloggerchallenge links in the comments!


  1. I have that book, haven't made anything from it yet. Ihave too many cookbooks at home!

    1. I don't have that many cookbooks but I'm looking to get more! They can be so helpful! x x

  2. I need some cookbooks in my life and learn how to cook before I move out of home haha. This looks like a good one to have when I'm more advance in cooking. Thanks for sharing this :)

    1. Haha. Learning to cook would make your life easier when you're not at home. Works out cheaper and healthier as well! You're welcome! :) x x
