The Friday List


We are heading down to Rydal tomorrow morning for the village's annual show and I can't wait. The kids have entered drawings into the art section and my sister is bringing her ponies across for that side of the competition (so nice to have somebody horse-y in the family). If you are in the area and looking for something to do tomorrow, consider coming along, it's a really great day out (here's a post from last year's show).

In the meantime, here are some links for your Friday reading pleasure! 

These lemon bars look amazing. As does this lemon and raspberry cake from Not Without Salt.

New season apples are hitting the shops and markets, so lets celebrate with this apple and ginger cake

I've never made a babka before but after seeing this salted chocolate and pumpkin one am very keen to have a go! Oh and what about this sweet potato one, holy moly the photography in this post is incredible...

Loved this story; one of my favourite bloggers (What should I eat for breakfast today's Marta Greber) on one of my favourite websites.

Oh hello lifestyle envy alert....Skye lives in Venice..just that for starters. But's also a very clever cook and photographer and surrounds herself with beautiful food, things and people. Sigh.

Love this Dutch house from Decor8 this week.
