Share things you have pinned that you want to try before the end of the year

5 June , 2016


I think you’ve seen quite a few of my pins already, so I’ll show you a few I’m trying and have tried for today’s family lunch.

I should just point out that baking isn’t really my thing. When I do it, it’s a labour of love…and I expect people to eat it and enjoy it regardless of how it looks. πŸ˜‰
First up – Rasberry Chocholate Tart


Nailed it! Hahaha! (I was telling Nicola I don’t know how they get their rasberries to behave like that and she said, mom you only need 4 things…concentration, concentration, concentration and concentration).


Seconly, a Pear and Almond Tart.


Now mine…(someone used up all the foil between me seeing it, and me needing it. So I Macguyvered it used another pie dish to weigh it down with the poor beans, and it worked I guess, but it ripped a side off when I removed it. Soldier on I say!).


And my pears got halfway swallowed by the filling…

For my last trick I’m going to try these:


I don’t see how this could go wrong. They are meant to look lumpy. I’m pretty sure I can pull that look off.



  1. I absolutely feel your love whenever you have baked me anything. You and Khanyi (you’ve met at a birthday) are the only two people who have ever baked me gifts. Speaking of which, I need to get out your blue scarf… check Facebook next weekend πŸ™‚

    • Will do! πŸ™‚

      Turned out they were all delicious…even if they didn’t look exactly like the originals.

  2. Oh gosh now I need some baked goodies asap. Looks yummy

    • Thanks! πŸ™‚ It came out great actually…although I probably could have done it a bit neater.

  3. Yum!!! I never attempt anything from Pinterest because those things always look like they were done by food stylists. I better remember Nicola’s tips when next I’m baking

    • As long as it tastes good, I don’t mind if it looks a bit different. πŸ˜‰

Say something...come on! You know you want to?
