Well I hope you all enjoyed the first week of ‘Baking’ on Monday. With the weather dull, wet and cold we do tend to want to eat carbs and make cakes. So, if you haven’t tried making any before then this is the programme to get you going.

This is its second series and one of the baker’s, Lorraine Pascale, changed her career from top model to a top baker. She followed her diploma with a foundation degree in International Culinary Arts in Pastry working in some of the busiest kitchens in the world.

She now runs her own bakery, Ella’s Bakehouse, in London;s Covent Garden and has just released her first book ‘Baking Made Easy’, which accompanies the TV series.

The book has both sweet and savoury recipes from pork pies and chorizo and thyme fougasse to Battenberg cake and white chocolate and amaretti cheesecake, so there’s something for everyone.

I am a mum and wife to a lovely caring family. I’ve suffered with chronic back pain for over 30 years and started writing my first blog in 2007 which covered back and chronic pain. Since then I have written many more blogs for myself and customers. I find it takes me away from my pain to another place. I love it so much I think it should be part of a recovery process after illness or surgery. I hope you enjoy reading through my blogs.


    1. It is a brilliant programme. I guess the way to find out where the glass food processor came from would be to email the BBC – there is sure to be a link ont he internet. Did you enjoy last nights? I missed it as I was out seeing Peter Kay but have taped it so hope to catch up. Thanks for your comment 🙂
