I'm 28, married and I have a very time-consuming job as ground staff at the U.K's largest airport outside London. I Love to bake, ever since I was a little nipper. I used to help (or should i say make a mess) my nan at every opportunity. The good thing now is I get try out any new recipes on my husband!! Whether it be sweets or savouries I'll give it a go. I like collecting the magazines from the supermarket as they always hide a treasure of recipe somewhere. Recently, I have been doing some baking with a friend of mine round her house and were doing something right if 6 children wonder when I'm going to visit! <a href=""><img src="" width=400 height=50 border=0></a><a href="" target=_blank></a> <img src=""><img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""><img src=""> I have a very sweet Currently watch Food Safari, The Hairy Bikers and especially Ace of Cakes. <a href=""><img src="" width=250 height=250 border=0></a><a href="" target=_blank></a> <embed src=" Countdowns&flashLABEL=Critical Layouts&skin=" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width=400 height=190 name="countdown" align="middle" wmode="transparent" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="" /><a href=""></a> <a href=""><img border="0" src="" alt="Free HTML Hit Counters"></a><a href=""></a>
