The arrival of guests chez nous today has given me a good excuse to do some baking.

Hub and I have been trying to cut down a bit on indulgences recently so I have not been baking as frequently as I used to.  But it is always nice to be able to offer home-cooked goodies to family and friends, isn’t it.

Here is my freshly-glazed lemon drizzle cake – yum!  I used Mary Berry’s very reliable recipe, with which I always get good results.


And while I was preparing it, I was listening to some wonderful, classic swing tunes.  Below are three of my favourites.  Why not give them a listen the next time you feel like foxtroting and jiving around the kitchen! 🙂
