Sacré Cœur & A La Pomponnette

Sacré Cœur

I did loads and loads of walking in Paris. This is the little cobbled street leading to the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris. Sacré Cœur. Second time at this touristy point but ever so amazing sitting and admiring the view. Its at the highest point in Paris on the hill of Montmarte.

Leading up to Sacré Cœur

After a spot of sightseeing, we had the best meal ever at A La Pomponnette! Rustic feel and look AND the food was just AMAZING. Exquisite even. Not pretentious and very authentic French food. Very patient service too as they had to translate their menu one by one just for me :D It was pretty challenging to decide as everyone around me are little fuss pots since I am preggers. Therefore, cannot eat loads of cheeses, raw or undercooked meats etc etc. I settled for scallops since the waiter gave me a disapproving look and a huge no no when I pondered about a well done steak. My husband enjoyed the steak and he thought it was the best ever steak he had in his lifetime and he really does LOVE his steak.

Bill’s Restaurant

I was in Bristol a while back & stumbled into Bill’s after Patiserie Valerie told us that they don’t do breakfast at that branch. What a delight! Such a beautiful cozy place to enjoy breakfast.

image
A large pot for tea! It was not filled to the top :D
image

Eggs Royale! One of my favourite things to eat for breakfast. Poached eggs served over smoked salmon, hollandaise, pumpkin seeds and toasted sour dough.

image

Look at that yolk! Oooozeeeeee baby :Dimage
Guess what? I think Bill’s is coming to Nottingham!!!! I am well excited, cannot wait to drop by.

Mimi is too cute for words.

Meet Mimi, one of my very affectionate cat. She crawled into my arms seeking attention.

image

She was so comfy and relaxed, she had a little snooze!! Its not a particularly comfy position. Mimi’s nearly ‘vertical’.

image

Awwww bless! Look at her contented little face.

image

You have to excuse my pyjamas. Haha!! Hope you enjoyed these pictures. Xxx

Hello everyone

Big wave hello! The blog has been slightly neglected of the late. We have been busy with eating 😅😂 whoops I mean new goodies! Look!!

Yes I update loads on our other social media sites mainly Facebook & Twitter. Since I started Instagram though.. I have to admit that it has been wonderful not only for my entertainment but also for Baked By Me. There’s no limit on words like Twitter and its very image focused and I am sure you have realised by now I enjoy taking photos especially of food and desserts.. erm and my cats. Haha! I have made new friends on there and love having a nosey at what they cook and bake! An added plus point would be the orders that come our way :) Thank you. Facebook has always been kind to us although it is frustrating that we have 9500 people that are interested in our page, goodies etc BUT most of our posts is only seen by 300-500 people. We understand as Facebook is a business too and Baked By Me does not pay FB for advertisements. Nothimg to fret about :) I will update our sites as much as possible and perhaps you can drop by our page from time to time too.

Oh yes, I wanted to share some ‘order packing’ pics. Enjoy xxx

Home cooked meals.

 

Just a mish mash of meals I have made this week :) Enjoy!

Stir fried vegetables and Beef Kurma.image

Here’s the Beef Kurma simmering in the pan.

image

Noodles and condiments for a little Prawn Mee tea for the husband and myself.

image

Mmmm! Very enjoyable meal. Ps. the soup paste is not made from scratch. If you go to the Asian supermarket, you will be able to find this brand called Tean’s Gourmet. Buy the Prawn Noodles one. Saves you so much time and they taste really good. All ready in 30 minutes. (Whoops, the secret is out. I don’t spend lots of time cooking)

image

Pasta. Fridge was pretty bare. Found some Passata, chopped tomatoes and a can of tinned tuna and crab meat..

image

Rosemary Potatoes to go with steak.

Hope you have a lovely Friday ahead and happy weekend xxx

Homemade Chocolate Lollipops

I LOVE testing out our products and taking pictures to show you that they not only work, but they are easy to use and they work well! I had so much fun playing around with one of our new moulds, a chocolate lollipop mould! Here’s a picture of them together with our new speckled Easter Egg mould.Baked By Me moulds

I had plans to decorate my chocolate lollipops with different chocolate designs. I used a mini letter mould and an embellished heart mould. Filled the mould with beautiful melted strawberry choc (it’s pink!). Best to use a syringe of some sort to fill the mould :) Pop in fridge for a while and voila. All done! I made a little Instavideo on HERE if you want to have a peek.

image

Love the different flower designs on the embellished heart mould! Pretty and versatile.

I had some Butterfly Confetti from Sainsburys on standby too. I had no clue what I was going to use just yet. Just made it up as I went along.

image

Freeze dried raspberry pieces are the BEST. I love them as it makes whatever you make look really ‘posh’ and I do love the idea of having some fruit to balance out the chocolate ;) I got them from Sainsbury’s. Sprinkled the raspberry pieces on the mould.

image

Scooped heaps of wonderful milk chocolate into the mould. Remember to gently tap the mould on a hard surface to release air bubbles.

Decorate according to your taste or theme. Look! I used the strawberry flowers as well as personalised some of my choc lollies with the alphabet made from earlier :) Fabulous?? I was so pleased with myself. *happy dance*

Chocolate Lollipops

Promise this did not take very long :) Very satisfying considering that so little effort is put in to make such professional looking lollipops. A very thoughtful little gift too. Try making yours. Have a browse on our website to have a cheeky browse at all our moulds.

Embellishment moulds available from here.

Mini letter mould from this link.

.. and the star of the day! Our Chocolate Lolly mould from here.
