A few weeks ago I hosted a BBQ, which was pretty rad. For the event I made a Summer Berry Pie. I also got a bit drunk and didn’t take any photos of it, because I was having a good time (soz ‘ard). I was however recently contacted by Seasonal Berries who were looking for people to get involved in their Berries Say Summer campaign. Talk about a great excuse for me to re-bake not only a tasty pie but for me to get some actual snaps of it this time around. And hey, as I’m changing jobs soon (can’t remember if I mentioned that) it’s a good chance for me to make a pie and take it in for my current workmates (they’ll be getting a cake the week I leave, I’m too good to this lot).

I have a bit of a backlog. I seem to open half my posts with that. I need to get my act together. I’ve been so busy (again, and I was expecting such a quiet July…) and a lot of that is blog related. I took advantage of working from home during the tube strike last week though to do some baking (gaining a couple of hours back in a day is pretty hand when you don’t have to travel). Having said that, it did take me 2.5 hours to get home from a Selfridges event I attended on the Wednesday night (more on that to come soon). The great thing about a Chocolate Tart is that while it needs plenty of chill time, the actual hands on time is fairly minimal.
I moved house, again. I am now a resident of Bow Road. Pretty much opposite the tube station, so pretty handy. Now you know where I live. No stalking please. But because of this move, I’ve been a bit slow on the baking lately. I’ve not had a chance to try out the new oven yet (don’t worry, that’ll be soon). On top of moving, I’ve been to my first press event and been quite social in the weeks. Baking takes time, as does editing photos and writing up the posts. But here’s a Blueberry Pie I baked about 2 weeks ago. Read more
