While we’re all waiting for the clock to strike midnight and welcome in a brand new year, I thought it would be fun to look back on some of my favourite posts of 2014 and also sneak in a few pictures that didn’t make it on the blog…
In January I made this gorgeous blood orange drizzle cake.
This is definitely a recipe to make again when beautiful blood oranges come into season.
In February I met James Morton at the Eden Court Theatre in Inverness. He is a lovely guy and was kind enough to give me some of his 9 year old sourdough!
In March I was very excited to interview Ruth Clemens, finalist on The Great British Bake off series one. I also got to review her new Éclairs book and made her delicious white chocolate and raspberry éclairs!
In April I found an amazing white chocolate, cranberry and orange hot cross bun recipe. I think I might be a little obsessed with orange…
This coconut chocolate loaf cake went down a storm at work.
Cherry tomato and thyme focaccia
In August I met the lovely Victor and Carina Contini at the Nairn food festival…and I was very lucky to win a copy of their kitchen garden book and a voucher for lunch at their Scottish cafe and restaurant which is located in the Scottish National Gallery. I haven’t had the chance to visit yet,but soon!!
In September I went to the first Inverness Let’s Bake meeting at the cafe and bicycle shop Velocity. I met some lovely lassies including Susan of Mess in the Ness and Kirsty of Ever so Sweet. We had a lovely evening chatting and eating all the lovely baking everyone had brought along!
Apple and fig upside down cake
November was chilli month. I ate a lot of smoky chipotle chilli.
