Let's bake ...and craft!

Hello friends

I've been hit by a sudden urge to bake this week!
Not sure if it is the cold weather, craving home cooking or just that I'm waking up
early and wanting the house to smell of cookies and cakes.

So far this week there has been chocolate chip cookies and blueberry muffins.
There was 8 cookies but by the time I took the photo the boys had walked by!
 I found the simplest blueberry muffin recipe so I think these could be a frequent make.
One of the first Charity Kits was a recipe notebook/organiser with additional
monthly add-ons and recipes, it proved really popular.

I'm wondering whether for March onwards a journal with add-ons may be a good 
Charity Kit idea - what do we think?

February's kit is well underway, here's a sneak peek!
Full details will be revealed next week.

Back at London work today and while I'm away I'm having work done on the roof
of my house, there's been a few leaks and I'm finally getting things sorted.
The boys are left in charge of tea making and offering blueberry muffins!

Take care friends, stop by tomorrow for Friday Die Day!

Hi Christine
The cookies and muffins look delicious. Whenever I bake at home it disappears very quickly too, one of the joys of having teenagers in the house.
Stay safe today. We have a little snow here but the wind is bitter.

Hello Christine. Enjoy your day in the big city. I don't think there will be many muffins left by the time you get home. A journal with add-ons would be a great idea for your charity kit. xxMargaretxx

Hi Christine
Loving the cookies and muffins. But I was wondering how many hours in the day you have. Seems to me that with your work and ambassador duties where to you find the time to make cakes.

Liking the look of your sneak peek for February as well as those cookies and muffins. Yum! I only bake such naughty things when the weather is like this. There's a brownie recipe I've been wanting to try. I have all the ingredients so.....
Not sure about a journal - nothing worth writing about :(

I like the idea of a journal, will have to buy some blueberries when I go shopping to make some muffins
