bakingbecks Today @rachthornts and I made a Mediterranean Vegetable and Mascapone Tart for lunch. We did that thing where you open the fridge door and just stare at the contents working out what meal they could possibly become. I'm very happy with the results. I'm extra happy there is seconds! Thanks @rachthornts 4d

bakingbecks I ate an impressive amount of food yesterday that didn't include many vegetables. My remedy for this is a Rhubarb, Strawberry and Vanilla Bircher for breakfast this morning. 3 of my 5 a day in one hit! Love a Summer-ery breakfast. 1w

bakingbecks Today I had my first wild swim in aaaaages. We went to my favorite spot, Loup Scar at Burnsall out in the Yorkshire Dales. I had some of my favourite people there and a picnic. The water was warm, the wildlife was prolific and we got packed up and back to the car before the rain truly hit. Wonderful day 🐇 2w

bakingbecks Really enjoyed this Rhubarb Crème Brûlée at @ilkleyblackhat today, it was fantastic. It reminded me that I still haven't made @lisafaulknercooks Rhubarb and Custard Pots, so that's in the plan for the weekend. 1mon

bakingbecks Today I made @theboywhobakes Rhubarb Buckle from the March 2016 issue of @bbcgoodfood
I love Rhubarb, everyone knows it's my favorite!
I made it in preparation for some visitors but I didn't get it in the oven early enough so now I have an entire cake to myself

bakingbecks These beautiful Dwarf Daffodils were planted in memory of my Mother in Law. A woman so wonderful and vibrant there are not enough superlatives to describe her. The wood near my home and dear to my mother in law has been strewn with spring flowers, these Daffodils are the first of which to bloom. I was presented with this basket as an Easter gift, I can think of nothing better. 2mon

bakingbecks Today I made Cherry and Almond Buns just because I couldn't fit all of my baking supplies in my newly organised cupboard. It seemed sensible to bake with them instead
Again instead of following a recipe I went off piste as it worked well with the Banana Cake, they have turned out OK if a little sweet as I failed to take out any sugar to balance for the Marzipan I grated into the mix.

bakingbecks This morning's Shrove Tuesday Breakfast. Raspberry & Dark Chocolate as well as the all time classic Lemon and sugar.
American pancakes are lovely but it has to be good old fashioned pancakes for Shrove Tuesday.

bakingbecks I thought I was going to have last minute visitors today so I made a batch of @lisafaulknercooks Sunshine Shorties at high speed. If they can help Lisa pass her Brownie hostess badge they would make my guests feel welcome! Turns out they weren't able to stop by so now I have a whole batch just for me 4mon
