As this is the first post of my brand spanking new blog I thought I'd begin by telling you a little bit about myself.
My name is Donna and I'm a just the right side of 30 mom living in Bedford. My little girl is knocking on the door of 5 (don't know where the last 5 years have gone!) and often likes to help me in the kitchen with my baking creations.
I have always liked being in the kitchen coming up with new meal ideas and trying out recipes found on the internet or from recipe books. Even more so after I joined the weight loss group and needed to find healthy, tasty recipes for meals as well as baking.  That is where my enthusiasm for baking began to grow as I started to find new ways of making old recipes using lower fat, healthier ingredients and finding that people were still enjoying the results. Though if not cooking for myself I do still like to use the full fat ingredients for richness and flavour, I definitley do not enforce my diet upon others! Luckily for me I have found a group of willing guinea pigs taste testers in the form of my work colleagues at our weekly meetings.
I hope to be posting once or twice a week with tales of my latest bakes, what worked well and perhaps needs more work. Of course with some recipes, methods and pics of my masterpieces efforts and perhaps even a few of myself and littlest baker might sneak themselves in here and there.

Do pop back soon as I received a nice new book of baking recipes( on Christmas day and hope to be trying some recipes from it in the next few days...

Littlest baker all dressed and ready to go!
