When I get stressed and need some cheering up I bake. (therefore I am) haha.

In the past week I have baked, cooked and eaten like a starving woman. I baked scones, Mrs Field's dark chocolate chunk cookies , and attempted to bake another frangipani tart . Except that the tart bombed out (i misguidedly thought I could replace pure icing sugar with impure icing mixture. what. was. i thinking?!) the frangipane mixture did not set and remained in a molten gooey state even after the tart crust had been burnt to a crisp. No worries -I made buttermilk pancakes with rich chocolate sauce instead. Almost as good as Trade Winds Cafe in Maroubra.

Despite Jpeg being in hospital the weekend wasn't so bad. I got to gorge myself on Voodoo's mum's fijian crab curry. OH YEAH! (crab makes everything better!)

Hi Ange - thanks for well wishes! Your rustic olive bread looks great! We have a bread machine at home, so I'm too lazy to bake own bread anymore but I do love abit of good kneading.
