I’ve started baking again. I haven’t done this for ages. I never seemed to have time, and when I tried to bake I found myself looking at the clock all the time. I started to dislike baking because it started to invade my time.
I did home economic class, ( it was always called ‘cooking class’), for one year at high school. I loved my teacher, but was never very good at cooking. I remember on the very first lesson the teacher saying.’When you get home your Mother will probably tell you that I’m doing everything wrong, and I’m going to say to you, everyone has their own way of doing things and this is my way”. Right from that moment I really liked my teacher, Mrs White, because I knew my Mum would say exactly that when I got home and she saw the recipe I had written down. Forty seven years later and I still have and still use that same cookery book. Each recipe getting harder the further on you go.
For Christmas 2019, I wanted to give my two adult children a special gift. I came up with the idea that I would copy out my old school recipe book, one copy for each of them. But I wanted to do a little bit more than just copy out my old school cookery book. So I started adding their Grandma’s baking recipes, close family members and close friends started adding their favourite recipes. The two books started to become very special and the look on the faces of my two grown up children said it all. I knew those two books would always be treasured.
