Blog fans, it was only a matter of time before the higher echelons of the Scottish social media scene recognised me and mymonkfish for their Top 30 ‘Best of Scottish’ websites. Entering the chart at number 13 monkfish was up there with the best of them! Continue reading

Ok, it’s the little things in life that make me happy (you should know that by now…) and that includes my daily twitter fix with my new ‘friends’ – @puddingface, @porridgelady, @sueperkins, @jamandcream, @rivercottage, @Happy_Appetite, @ginandcrumpets, @meemalee to name but a few. All of my twitter ’friends’ have one thing in common with me….FOOD. Surprised?! Don’t be…
For those of you who haven’t ventured into twitterdom then it’s never too late. You can follow people who have a) never been your friends; b) are never likely to be your friends; c) may befriend you (WOOHOO) if they find you ‘interesting’; and best of all d) you won’t ever want to ‘unfriend’ them in the way you want to unfriend people on facebook who you haven’t seen since you were 13 and have no inclination of ever meeting up with them ever again because what have you got in common with them now you are in your 40′s?!
oops, small rant about facebook over… Continue reading
Just exhausted at the thought of all the food going on in my life at the mo! Super excited about baking easter cupcakes tomorrow, the mini eggs are at the ready…lovely Jamie O recipe lined up for Easter Sunday – roast leg of lamb with aubergine and tomato (tried and tested, tis yum)…..and to top it off am having super exciting week watching masterchef semi finals and following masterchef on Twitter.
Life doesn’t get any better than this! Gregg Wallace aka Pudding Face is lapping it all up by the cake load.
Particularly fab episode last night cooking for the ‘lovely ladies of the WI’….that huge victoria sponge cake looked amazing although perhaps rather large slices were served for the ‘lovely ladies of the WI‘ (as some of them commented) but all of them proceeded to devour it nonetheless!
got to laugh, my keen interest in baking and all things ‘cake-like’ actually stems from one of the ‘lovely ladies of the WI’….Mrs Monkfish senior (my mum!).
Photos coming up on the blog this weekend, watch out
And follow Pudding Face on twitter, hilarious.
