A Great Foodie Weekend & A Winner


What an absolutely brilliant weekend I have had. I spent Thursday and Friday with Cooper, which was so nice, as he was staying with his grandparents from Sunday night until Wednesday night and I missed him like crazy.

On Friday night I headed off on the train to Ayr with  my friend Stuart aka Cakeyboi (one of my Clandestine Cakers). We had a few glasses of wine in the evening before retiring to our rather plush rooms. Then a leisurely breakfast the next morning before heading off to Ayr Racecourse, where the first every Scottish Food Bloggers Conference was being held. Our chums Janice from Farmersgirl Kitchen and Louise from Please Do Not Feed The Animals were there to keep us company too (more about that later in the week) and we made some rather nice new friends too. Also a big thanks to Scotty Brand for sponsoring me.



As if that wasn't exciting enough, I appeared in the Daily Record's Taste of Scotland Supplement and in the October edition of Vegetarian Living, which is in the shops now.

To top it all off, I am off to Dundee's Flower and Food Festival today. Unfortunately I missed Mary Berry yesterday, but the Baker Brothers are doing a demo today, so that should be good.

One happy girl!



And now for another happy girl, hopefully! I have drawn the winner of my Chocolates by Genevie giveaway and the winner is:


I hope you enjoy your Belgium chocolates Ros.
