About Me

My Photo
My name is Kaye and I am 56 years old. I love to cross stitch and quilt, especially with my kittens, Furio and Milo "helping" me. I also love to read, I have a passion for history and I have been cooking since I was about 12 - move over Junior Masterchef! So, this blog, which started out as a cross stitch blog sometimes morphs into a reading journal or a history lesson (sorry, I used to be a secondary teacher before I became a publisher) or a post about my cooking mojo. Whatever it is, this blog is alway about me, my family and my life here in Eaglemont, Victoria. I have been happily married for over 30 years to the most wonderful man and we are blessed with three beautiful grown up children.

Blue Blueberry Muffins

Wow!  Two posts in one day!

But I just had to show you my Blue Blueberry Muffins which I just took out of the oven.  We are having the December Birthdays morning tea at work tomorrow so I thought that I would try this recipe from a cosy mystery novel which I am currently reading:

 These are a series of cosy murder mysteries set in a little town in Minnesota - they are a lot of fun.  The heroine, Hannah Swensen owns a cookie shop so each book is full of cookie and other recipes.  So, I thought that I would try one of them.  This is the result:

This one below is made with the leftover mixture - it is a big one for TraderVic, DD, DS2 and I to share:

.... and here is Furio giving me lots of help in the kitchen!

They look scrumptious, blueberry muffins are a favourite at Trewoon.

Wish we could share one over a good chin wag.

Maybe one day you will feel the urge to visit Australia or else I will come to visit you in Cornwall. How lovely would either of those scenarios be?
