Home-made cream crackers

These are my first attempt at making home-made crackers, I never knew how easy they are to whip up!

455g Flour
half a teaspoon salt
85g butter
Milk to mix

Put flour, salt and butter into food processor, (I also added half a teaspoon of dried herbs and a pinch of chilli) blend until the butter is rubbed in. Slowly add milk to foam a stiff dough. Roll out thinly. Cut into squares, place on greased oven tray and prick with a fork. Bake at 200 degrees Celsius for approximately 10 minutes (one tray at a time in the oven to insure an even bake.)

Happy baking!

A little green

To make up for the shortage of flowers this time of year I've been filling my house with loads of plants, even a indoor tree! Here's a few of the succulents I picked up from the market, quite happy in their vintage pots and a milk jug!

diy ring

I've recently spotted lots of over sized rings in magazines and designer shops lately, many with beautiful gemstones. This is my take on the ring, I brought this stone then attached it to a Stirling silver band, I'm very happy with how it turned out!
