Christmas Gingerbread Bundt Cake

It has been 9 months since my last post but it might as well have been a lifetime ago! Since my last post we have welcomed our gorgeous little girl into the world and the months have just flown by. Life is so full and hectic and magical with a little one. It has been the most incredible experience watching her grow and become a little person. And now all of a sudden Christmas is here!

Christmas is a million times more fun with a kid isn't it? For our first Christmas as a family of three we decided to go with a living Christmas tree! The idea is that we will get to watch the tree and our little girl grow up together.  New traditions for our brand spanking new family.

Speckled Easter Egg Cake: Chocolate cake with whipped vanilla buttercream frosting

Happy Easter everyone!

My goodness, looking back it has really been a wee while since I last posted.  To be honest the last couple of months have been a bit of a blur. I was working silly hours at the hospital and not getting time to do much else - no baking, no prepping for baby related things, barely any sleeping.

Then it all came to a screeching halt when I started having a tricky time with my pregnancy.  It was pretty scary and things have been touch and go for the last little bit, but now we are finally on the home stretch! I've stopped work and have been doing lots of resting interspersed with scrambling to get our house and lives ready for our little one's arrival.

And I had some time to finally do some baking ... this Speckled Easter Egg Cake for the Baking for Hospice Easter Round.

Happy New Year, Happy New Things and a Nutty Quinoa & Roasted Kale Salad

Happy New Year everyone!

Hope you had a spectacularly awesome holiday period with your loved ones.

My goodness, I can't believe it is 2016 already!  Where has the time gone? Looking back it has been a couple of months since I last posted. Well, have I got lots of catching up to do with you, dear readers.

They say things in life often happen in threes.

Luckily, it was three good exciting new things that have come our way.  

Life changing, mind blowing, wondrous things.
