Blog fans, it was only a matter of time before the higher echelons of the Scottish social media scene recognised me and mymonkfish for their Top 30 ‘Best of Scottish’ websites.  Entering the chart at number 13 monkfish was up there with the best of them!  Continue reading


A very quick baking post while we’re perhaps still in ‘Royal Wedding’ mode! In true  Mr Predictable style my other half decided to share his birthday this year with the much anticipated marriage of Wills and Kate, honestly, the gall of the man!  So, in true Mrs Monkfish style I thought I’d better whizz him up a home made birthday cake to celebrate the whole affair.  Continue reading

It’s all go!

Just exhausted at the thought of all the food going on in my life at the mo!  Super excited about baking easter cupcakes tomorrow, the mini eggs are at the ready…lovely Jamie O recipe lined up for Easter Sunday – roast leg of lamb with aubergine and tomato (tried and tested, tis yum)…..and to top it off am having super exciting week watching masterchef semi finals and following masterchef on Twitter.

Life doesn’t get any better than this! Gregg Wallace aka Pudding Face is lapping it all up by the cake load.

Particularly fab episode last night cooking for the ‘lovely ladies of the WI’….that huge victoria sponge cake looked amazing although perhaps rather large slices were served for the ‘lovely ladies of the WI‘ (as some of them commented) but all of them proceeded to devour it nonetheless!

😉 got to laugh, my keen interest in baking and all things ‘cake-like’ actually stems from one of the ‘lovely ladies of the WI’….Mrs Monkfish senior (my mum!).

Photos coming up on the blog this weekend, watch out 🙂

And follow Pudding Face on twitter, hilarious.
