Baking is my kind of therapy. A peaceful silence settling into the kitchen, broken only by music on the radio – yes, we have a radio, and it plays old school tunes because mum picks the channel – the hum of the oven and the gentle whir of the fan. Outside, Joey our dog happily

Autumn is wonderful. It’s my favourite season – not too hot, not too cold, but juuuust right. A Goldilocks season.

I crave spring. Let’s face it, everybody welcomes summer with open arms, ready for the sunny days by the beach, gentle waves lapping at toenails painted in pastel shades, clear cornflower-blue skies overhead.

Have you ever catered for a party? And by catered I mean cooking for a large gathering of people, mostly strangers, with everything made from scratch? As of recently, I have. I don’t recommend it.
