    Brillant cheese board Liz – and mango wood. How lovely! I’ve never heard of that being used before, but it looks spectacular. As does your vanilla essence. Good luck with the chocolate haul!!

    Congratulations Liz on you Queensland Bulletin photographer – something amazing is about to happen for you! 2015 is looking good πŸ˜‰ Those bread rolls look amazing – I must try. You used Penelope, daughter of Priscilla, for those? Is there a recipe? Would love to learn to make those too. Your sundried tomato & olive sourdough looks pretty tasty πŸ™‚ Thank you for all your wonderful goodies this month x

      Thanks Nicole… I’m not sure what is going to happen with the article… We will just have to see πŸ™‚ all I know is my website needs looking at πŸ™‚ the White rolls are a recipe off the Thermomix recipe community, but easily made without if you have a kitchen aid and dough hook to help with kneading… I can email the recipe if you like? Thanks for dropping by! Liz xxx
