I am just about a 30 something city girl who is mum to one amazing young man. I am married to my school sweetheart and attibute the success of our long marriage to the PlayStation (for him) and wine (for me!). When not baking I enjoy watching Desperate Housewives, as you can probably tell by my name! My friends have been known to call me Bree (although not perhaps in her current situation).
Due to a series of late night, spur of the moment, decisions (which have taken us around the country) I have found myself living in the back of beyond on a sheep farm and living the rural life. I now have only my vaguely trusted internet connection to keep me in touch with the John Lewis sales and Fat Face. Thankfully the local town does have a Starbucks and Costa so I am still able to indulge in my passion for a skinny latte and blueberry muffin.
My passion for baking stems from a childhood being raised by a Yorkshire woman with a family of five to feed. At school I went on to complete a GCSE in Food and Nutrition, somehow only gaining a Grade D! I must have had other distractions at that time, that's all I can say..........*winking at Mr V-C*
These days I am very well known for my Hostess-with-the-Mostest skills and love nothing more than feeding any family or friend who is able to actually find the farm! I am slowly learning the love the rural life, although the sight of me in my pink stripey wellies still makes the farmer laugh!
