Hello, I’m Caley (rhymes with Sally if you were wondering how to pronounce it!). I’m originally from Northern Ireland but now live in the ‘burbs of Boston, MA.

This blog came about after I borrowed a couple of Northern Irish charity recipe books from my Mum. These books have contributed recipes for traybakes, biscuits and desserts (and some savory recipes too). I thought it would be interesting to work my way through the books and make some of those recipes from my childhood. Then I thought it might make an interesting blog and so here I am.

However, I will not be baking every recipe. A quick flick through the pages led me to a recipe for ‘all-bran and raisin fudge’… some recipes are probably best left in the past!

I hope you enjoy the recipes, find something new or revisit a favorite!
