I love this.
It's my Tala dry measure. You can pick one up for under £10.00
It's small, it's attractive, I would be lost without it. Everyone should have one!
Another piece of equipment that works really well for me is my Panasonic bread machine.For those sophisticates who can toddle off to their local artisan or organic bakery it probably isn't something to aspire to owning, but for the rest of us who really only have mass produced supermarket bread on offer it's wonderful. The only skill is to be able to follow the simple instructions and weigh the ingredients. Come Christmas and Bank Holidays when bread and milk panic grips the nation I sit back knowing I can have freshly baked bread on demand. The other positive is I know exactly what's in my bread - I can choose organic flour or not, I know that only one teaspoon of salt is added, and no trans fatty acids in sight as I only use pure English butter.
To change the subject slightly, and for those of you that might have tunned in for a crafty bite, here be some stems drying in the sunshine ready to be used in more vintage inspired felt corsages.....more another time.
