I'm absolutely loving spring this year. That last few years have been so hot and dry, but this year we seem to be experiencing all four seasons again, which is lovely. I thought it was probably time to put together another film, this one goes for just over two minutes, so it's a little lengthier then the last one.
The biscuits I'm making in the film are these Gluten Free Garlic & Rosemary crackers. They are seriously moreish and so easy to make.
Also, if you're inspired to make a film for your own blog, check out my post How to Make a Lovely Little Film for Your Blog
I hope you're enjoying the weekend!

This morning started with the sound of Kookaburras laughing in the paddocks, a lovely background noise over taken by the sound of the electric kettle. Sitting in the pantry was two batches of sourdough, risen to their full potential and full of big air bubbles. I'd bulk fermented them overnight, a bowl of my master (everyday) recipe and a box of pizza scroll dough. (The recipes/methods available in my eBook).
I love starting the day with kneading dough - it's such a lovely way to wake up. It seemed to be an exceptionally good batch of dough, so lovely and bouncy beneath my hands. Unfortunately I didn't flour my banneton enough (that's the last time I ignore that little voice in my head!) and my loaf of bread got very badly stuck. For a minute I thought I'd have to pull it from the banneton with my hands, but luckily it dropped out eventually. It lost a lot of air, but thank heavens for oven spring, it gained some back, so it didn't turn out as flat as I first thought.
The pizza scrolls, on the other hand, were perfect in every sense of the word.

The first of the warmer months are always welcome after winter, and this time of year usually has me thinking of trips to the beach - picnics and ice cream eating included! These little daydreams made me suddenly realise that I had COMPLETELY neglected to share my knitting pattern for Neapolitan Ice Cream Washcloths.
I have a good excuse, I promise. I published this pattern in August, along with three other knitting patterns and my eBook, and there was lots of other things going on too. Really there was.
Anyway, excuses and reasons aside, lets get into the delicious details of this pattern!
