Purple Plum Cake

Purple Plum Cake by Li

This post marks the return of my picture-taking, food-writing habits. I'm sorry I've been away so long, but England rather sucked me in and wouldn't let me continue my blogging ways.

Sticky Banana, Walnut and Date Bread

Sticky Banana, Walnut and Date Bread by Li

Where oh where has September gone?My blog now has abandonment issues. The last few weeks have been crazy, but if you asked I actually wouldn't be able to pinpoint exactly why. Just a combination of work, multiple uni assignments and admittedly a little loss of my blogging mojo. It wasn't until I flicked back to my earlier posts that I…
