It has been a good long while since I have made an appearance on my blog. Hello to any one who is still out there!! Amongst other very important things, like watching Doctor Who, reading Sherlock Holmes, napping and making cake pops, I have been knitting. Quite a lot. I decided a few months ago that I would give an Etsy shop a try. See what happens. See if people like the same things I do. So, if you happen to enjoy Harry Potter, are an American Girl fan or know one, or simply like warm cozy scarves around your neck during the cold months, pop on over to my shop, The Shaggy Llama! Hope you all are well out there, wherever you are.

I have been baking, I always bake. I usually take some photos - they usually aren't that great. But nevertheless, here they are: Chocolate chip cookies stuffed with Peanut butter Snickers bars. Picky Palate Smitten Kitchen. Isn't it pretty?

I know, I know, cucumber?! But I'm telling you, cucumber bread is the new zucchini bread. True story. My darling sister recently brought me a bunch of vegetables; vegetables I do not normally eat, like radishes and a cucumber. The radishes were roasted with carrots (delicious) and the cucumber was combined with lovely ingredients such as flour, sugar, cinnamon and eggs and baked in a loaf pan.

I know it's been awhile (give or take a few months) since I've made an appearance on my own blog... but a while ago I was reminded why I started this blog in the first place: because it is fun to take photos, write, make delicious food and then share that. And blogs are fun to read (goodness knows I love reading them) - so it is my goal that this blog might be fun for someone out there to read and look at. Here's hoping... recipe posted. We

This past weekend my sister and I baked a cake for my father's birthday. Dorie Greenspan's Perfect Party cake filled with lemon curd and decorated with 7-minute frosting and fresh raspberries. It makes me think that spring is almost here!

I am alive, for the few of you who are wondering ;) It is the middle of November and that means that I am in the midst of National Novel Writing Month! My novel is... interesting. I am hoping that this is one of those things that will look a lot better a few months from now! Most of the time when I am not sleeping or working is spent writing, or sitting at my computer staring at the screen! I have recently discovered Frank Turner and have spent many hours listening to every song of his that I can find. If Ever I Stray and Saint Christopher is Coming Home are my current favourites! Hope that all of you are well =D
