Would you believe me if I told you I did a little dance on the first day of March?
Summer is finally over and we welcome in my favourite season of them all - Autumn!
Cooler evenings, the changing colours of the trees and an extra hour sleep once day light savings finishes all goes towards making me one very happy little lady.
February was an interesting month for me as it was fairly quiet. Having recently moved homes, I found myself clinging to home base a little more than usual - getting use to my surroundings and just giving myself a little break. A little "me" time.
I did cook though - my way of connecting and switching off at the same time.

I also participated in February's Secret Recipe Club where I made one of my all time favourite salads for the Summer - Peachy Quinoa Salad. If you haven't tried this salad yet, I beg you to give it a go because you'll love the fact that it's super simple, quick to make and full of fresh flavour.
I also baked my first cake as part of the new "The Baking Series". In a nut shell, this series is about trialing basic cake recipes in trying to find fool-proof recipes that can be easily adapted to my taste buds and dietary needs. Hopefully my trials and errors will help you along your baking way too.
I've started with one of my favourites, the Buttermilk Cake (see Buttermilk Cake).
I'd love to hear about any great Buttermilk recipes you have, maybe ones you've managed to tweak to perfection?
Did you do anything amazing in February?
