Clare Ingram
Artist | Hobbyist | Artisan Crafts
United Kingdom
Me: Clare, mother of two, passionate baker, self taught photographer,music, sci-fi and video game fan.
My gallery: Full of food photography, recipes and a few polymer clay creations.
My mission: To inspire, make you hungry and get you excited about baking and food photography.
My Quirks: Despite my love for baking, i have a major food phobia! Everything i eat and drink freaks me out, even just one bite! so, i bake to see the happiness my food gives to others, that happiness makes me happy. I also have a rather unique laugh.
My Personality: Shy, quiet, determined, perfectionist, creative, over active imagination, worrier, anxious and a bit of an oddity.

The Christmas holidays are over and the kids are back at school.  This would normally mean getting back to baking but instead it means getting back to decorating our new house. 
The whole house which we moved into a month ago needs a complete make over, head to toe.  We started the first rooms last week, the living and dining room.  Gone with the 20 year old discoloured wallpaper that was peeling off the walls and on with the paint.  We have chosen a colour called Muddy Puddle for the main colour, trust me it is a lot better than it sounds! A light browny/malty chocolatey colour that compliments the feature colour we are using either side of the chimneys called Teal Tension which is a very dark and rich teal. We probably have a couple more weeks left until it is all painted as not only did the walls need a lot of work (it was bare concrete and plaster under the wallpaper so never painted before so needed a lot of smoothing down and filler) but all the skirting boards, coving and ceilings need painting.  We are decorating the living and dining room together as they are joined by an archway and currently look silly being decorated differently so we feel they need to flow.

I really fancy doing a bit of baking next week.  Last week I made my first ever coffee cake (I don't like drinking coffee) so I really want to bake something else I have never baked before but I really can't think of any.  If anyone has any ideas, they have to be quick, simple and use mostly basic ingredients mind please do let me know. What do you like to bake after a long stay away from the kitchen?
