It's All About The Food

Good evening Lovelies, hope you're all having a fabulous Friday.  We had a bit of blue sky today but that soon disappeared and we were left with grey once again.  So to cheer us up I have a bit of a foodie post :)

First up cake. Now I LoVe cake and I think cake tastes even better when someone else makes it!
Popped over to see Mum today with the Little Sweetpeas and we were greeted with this beauty!

The most scrumptious looking Victoria Sponge I have seen!  Light golden sponge, oozing with sweet, sweet raspberry jam and fluffy vanilla scented buttercream.

All served up on pretty vintage plates!

Thank you Mum, it was divine! :)

Now it's on to pie, another love of mine.  This one is of the savoury variety.  I tweaked the recipe just a bit (tend to do that with most recipes) So may I present Chicken and Pancetta Pie

Love this photo with the sun shining through the window lighting up all the gorgeous layers of the puff pastry.

A little peek at the filling.  Chicken and pancetta with mustard and cream and parsley.  Mmmm. Perfect on a cold day (in June!!!)

What foods are you loving at the moment?
