Its wonderful having a baker in the family. Ella asked to look at my old Home Economics recipe books the other day, circa 1979 no less. Gosh Mrs Henderson was a great cooking and sewing teacher. She was so patient and kind and had a great tolerance level and sense of humour. The recipes are great because they are designed for beginners, ensure success and use small amounts of ingredients. I can still remember the very first recipe I ever made in that first class - toasted cheese rolls. I felt fuelled with confidence in my achievement.
