It’s all about the name… Anyone would think I was agonizing over a major life decision, but in a way, to me I guess I was.  What would be the perfect name for my little puppy?  Seems like a simple enough question, so then why has it taken me weeks to find an appropriate name??? MORE

My family is getting a puppy next weekend (English Cocker Spaniel) and I have spent the last month or so searching the web for the right foods to feed my dog.  Of course, we love our pets like family so we want to feed them with the same care as we do our families.   You’ll be… MORE

For this blog I decided to do something different.  I thought it might be fun to cook my way through the alphabet (although I may struggle to find suitable recipes for my family to enjoy with some letters) but of course we will see how we go!  Pretty sure there will be other blogs MORE

Going home but where is home??? On Wednesday I am going home!  Simple statement but where really is home?  It’s the question so many people always ask me.  Is home the English city where I was born? The English countryside where I raised my children?  Or the American city I now live in? MORE

Coffee Morning & Book Exchange In this time of economic downturn, it’s hard to justify too many additional expenses.  It’s a very sad thought that I do consider buying books as an unnecessary and frivolous expense, especially when I can get through 3-4 novels in a week.  At the mome MORE

Back to Basics, are we really???  I like to think of myself as a “back to basics cook”.  When it comes to cooking a meal for my family, I love to start from scratch using fresh local produce wherever possible.  If you want pancakes for breakfast why use Aunt Jemima or bisquik when we… MORE

Oh, for the love of Bundt… Every time I think of Bundt cake, I think back to one of my favorite films “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”.  It always has me in giggles when I think of Mrs. Miller being introduced to Bundt cake for the very first time… Toula’s father introduces MORE

About Me
A little about me, I am a wife and Mum of two gorgeous boys aged 18 and 23, and now mummy to two adorable English Cocker Spaniel puppies named Brie and Henri. We have been living in the US now for 5 years. (You will also see me on allrecipes.co.uk - AR's UK site). I guess like most other European’s I don’t eat to live, but live to eat!!! One of my great passions in life is food. Good home cooked, fresh produce. Especially if it is sourced locally. I truly believe that it is so important at the end of the day for a family to sit down and eat a home cooked dinner together. I spend a lot of my time in the kitchen now, which always amuses my husband. A few years back we had a small public house and restaurant in the Derbyshire Countryside (England). Never once would I venture in the kitchen. With all those professionals there was certainly no need for an amateur! Should you wish you can contact me at thebritishbaker@mail.com
My favorite things to cook
More than anything I adore baking. Cakes, Cookies (or biscuits as they are known to me) and my latest love is baking bread.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Some of my earlier memories are sitting at my Grandma’s kitchen table in England, watching her bake. She insisted on having to bake a fresh cake everyday. My Grandad was a big cake fan, and a cake always had to be kept in the pantry just in case a visitor should call. Not that you could move in the pantry for more sugar, flour and butter then any village store. (Just in case food rationing ever came back). Unfortunately my Grandma has recently passed away, but her passion for baking will always live on through me and I hope that in time my baking skill will do her justice.
My cooking triumphs
Anything that actually turns out how it is supposed too!!!
My cooking tragedies
Oh my goodness where do I start, like everyone I have had the usual tragedies, sponge cakes that have sunk in the middle, over cooked pie crusts, bread that has just failed to rise but I can thankfully say with a little patience and practice I am finaly getting better!!!
