New year, new blog post, new video - perhaps a little later than I intended it to be, but January was kind of busy. This time, I'm making a sweet bread, one of Paul's technical challenges again. It's the apricot couronne! If you've seen the Great British Baking Show Masterclass on Netflix, you might have… Continue reading GBBO – Paul’s Apricot Couronne
GBBO – Mary’s Bakewell Tart
My goal for these recipe reviews was to have one out every other week. Well, that didn't happen. Life got in the way, y'all. But we finally had a minute, so here's the second installment in my Great British Bake Off Technical challenge review series. I'm not going in any specific order with these; I'm… Continue reading GBBO – Mary’s Bakewell Tart

I did eat both the snacks, though. You can't go wrong with snacks. For breakfast, which I had around… Continue reading Day 1 of Clean Eating Challenge
