It has been a few months since my last post and I have been busy busy busy! Between getting a new job and moving house I have barely had time to cook. The first few times I attempted to bake in my oven … well let’s say it wasn’t suitable for consumption outside of my immediate household!
Despite the first few mishaps I think I’ve cracked it (although any tips on using a non fan assisted oven would be much appreciated). My first successful bake in the oven from hell, I mean my new oven, was a lavender and lemon cake.
After being given a wodge (technical term) of lavender from a colleague at work I wanted to try something new. I have never been the biggest fan of lavender in baking but I know that a hint can add a really nice floral flavour without being over powering.

EXITING JUST IN TIME
A hazy moon barely illuminating
the profound darkness of that night
I tossed and turned and drifted among
the shadows punctuating the night,
within that narrow space
between awake and restful sleep.
I wound through shadowed passageways
of long forgotten memories
and dreams so far unfulfilled,
each illumination bursting into
what began as peaceful sleep.
Screeching and slashing visions
overtook my once-sweet dreams,
spinning and swirling
and turning what had begun
as a rather peaceful night
completely inside out
and upside down.
So in a moment and an instant
my broken and tattered
emotions tossed aside,
I desperately tried to recover
what was left of me inside;
trying to collect all the tears
that I had shed,
gathering up the pieces
of what was left to mend,
putting back together
all the fragments of a broken heart
that seemed so battered
and torn apart
