Cakes and covets
My dd was away for a while, on a school visit to Paris (lucky girl!) She is at that age, when having her out of the house for a few days means respite from perpetual arguments, but nonetheless, I made a cake to welcome her home again.
This is the chocolate-orange loaf cake from Nigella's Kitchen. It's the very first recipe I've made out of there, and the cake turned out very well.
But forget the recipes, what I really, really want out of that book is the gingham apron with the ric-rac trim that Nigella wears to make blackberry vodka:
I intend to make a version of this before next Christmas. As I've discovered, a woman can't have too many aprons, at least not in my case. (And I may also try the blackberry vodka!)
