Accouncement – Blog name change news!

Hello lovely readers. I have a little announcement about my wee blog. Please bear with me, I’m a little nervous. (Silly, but that’s just me.)

I have been thinking of changing my blog name for a long time now. As much as I loved Cookie’s cakes and bakes, lately I’ve felt that it doesn’t really reflect my blog’s content anymore. I am equally passionate about cooking and baking, and priorities in my household have changed slightly. Our food budget has gotten tighter and every week I’m trying to find ways save money on our weekly shop. I know I’m definitely not alone in doing this. Times are hard for everyone. I’ve also found my children’s tastes are changing – food I present to them that they would previously wolf down with enthusiasm is being met with cries of “I don’t like that anymore.” I try not to make a fuss but as every parent knows, it’s not easy to shrug it off night after night.

My ultimate aim for this blog is for it to be a place where you lovely readers can turn to when you’re stuck for what on earth to make for dinner that the whole family will be happy eating , what to cook for a weekend family get together, or that special Birthday cake for a loved one.

So my new blog name will be…..

Something Sweet, Something Savoury

I really hope you will all stay with me! There isn’t going to be a huge change – I’ll still be baking lots of yummy treats but I’ll be switching my main focus onto family cooking.

Hope to see you soon! And please leave a comment – I’d love to hear your thoughts!

    1. Thanks Melanie, I felt I had to make the change – it’s been a long time coming. I’m thinking of devising a weekly menu plan as well, more details on that when I get everything sorted out ๐Ÿ™‚
