It’s Christmas

Hello, I am back! I have had my craziest, busiest year yet. Since my last post, close to a year ago (how time flies!), I have opened a Retail Shop. This, and the online shop have taken up a lot of my time and have not had much time to write or bake.   My year can be summarised by one word… TOUGH! I cannot believe Christmas is just 6 days away.

As it’s Christmas I thought I’d share a current favourite in our home- Mincemeat Muffins.
