Sadly, there was no action in the Crafty Corner today :( I had a rotten headache, so even went for a little lie down which was going swimmingly until a certain little red devil kitten dive bombed me and woke me up with a start (you can go off kittens you know!) The same little minx also woke us up at 5.45 a.m., so not a good start to the day! It's just as well he's got such a cute little face that we can forgive him!
So, although no crafting, I did make something! A batch of Orange and Cranberry Muffins - yum! These are based on a Nigella recipe from her Christmas book (that I made for the first time on Christmas morning as they are named "Christmas Morning Muffins"!) but I have adapted it to my tried and tested basic muffin mixture that I then add whatever ingredients I fancy to! I wondered about giving you the recipe here, so let me know if you would like it!
Notice the kitchen wall behind the muffins? We are in the process of renovating our kitchen, so no doubt there will be more on that as it progresses. At the moment we are waiting to hear from the plasterer before we can actually make a start, and I have to avoid crumbling plaster in my muffins!
Hi friends and family! I'm Carole, married to Phil since 1991 with two children, one dog and one cat. We live in a lovely part of the world, on the south coast of England. I love most things crafty, especially papercrafting, sewing and cooking! I am very lucky to be able to do most of these things on a regular basis.
