    I enjoyed the Observer article. I look forward to reading your blog!

  4. Tanya Davis

    I have followed your blog since you were featured in the Observer….just love it!! Baking has always been a hobby for me, but after putting on to many extra pounds, I have been on a diet for the past several months. Through your blog, I have discovered the cupcake recipes and have just been a cupcake baking fool lately. They are easy to give away and I get to fulfill my urge to bake without having a whole cake to tempt me. Keep up the great work!!!!

    • Aw, comments like this make my day, Tanya! I’m so glad you’re enjoying yourself! Cupcakes are some of my faves too, for exactly the reason you mention — and because they’re just so adorable. Which ones have you made?

      Happy baking!

    I love all things pumpkin and have been looking for a really great pumpkin bar recipe. Most are too cakey and not rich and moist like I am hoping for. Do you have any to share or feel up for a challenge? Thanks for all the great recipes!
