One of my dear friends from work bid adieu to us last week. She decided to move on and out of Dublin to pursue other opportunities. Sad though it was, we decided to make her last day special with a small going away party with gifts and goodies.
I’d bought a copy of the BBC GoodFood Baking magazine just a few days earlier and was enchanted by the variety of recipes I found inside. There are recipes for cakes, cookies, savoury pies and much more packed within a few pages. At the risk of turning my work colleagues into culinary guinea pigs, I decided to try out the delicious looking strawberry cinnamon torte and take it to work. Strawberries are in season right now and the bright pink/red strawberry packets have been beckoning me whenever I walk by them in stores. So, I thought there was no better reason and time to make use of these fresh berries.
