~~~home sweet home~~~

Hi there,

What do I say now?

First of all, it’s great that you’re here checking out my “lovely buns”. I hope you will enjoy looking!

With regards to me, I’m a Scot living in Alsace, France (oh la la!) and have been here since before my fledglings were even born. Now they are just about fully grown and ready to leave the nest so you have an idea as to how long I’ve been here. These are the very easy, pretty quick recipes we know and love from my little blue book!

I hope this blog will have many uses, a few of which are –

  • to gather my recipes together in one place without the buttery stains and illegible hand-written comments
  • to act as a guide for the aforementioned teenagers and any other newly independent chicks so that when they are far away in their student kitchens and fancy some “lovely buns” or feel the urge for some home cooking they don’t have too far to look for ideas
  • to keep me busy when I’m not

If any of the recipes shown can be of use to anyone else, great, they might save you from getting too homesick. I hope you find your favourites!

sweet bits

savoury bobs

Enjoy enjoy!

  27. I’ve recently switched my food blog over to be self-hosted which I hope will make it more user-friendly in the future. As a result, if you were following Can’t Stay Out of the Kitchen via email, WordPress, or using RSS feeds through Google Reader or some other way, you are no longer subscribed. If you wish to continue receiving future posts from my blog you will need to re-subscribe. Sorry for the inconvenience, Teresa.
