Baking and Cooking Advice

Hello! I'm Diana. This blog is dedicated to the subject of baking and cooking. I am not a professional baker or a chef. Everything I have learnt, I have taught myself using books.

Now that I have retired, I have plenty of time to cook and bake for my friends and family and I wanted to make a place where I could store all the advice I have in one place. That place is this blog. Enjoy!
