Sunday afternoon, a red fox was sunning itself in a garden two houses down. He was so close, I could have touched him – and so tame, I really probably could have. You see, he’s a common sight in our neighbourhood: he prowls about the flowers by night and hides himself in sleep by day. But still, I found him unsettling. Not because he’s wild – or, as wild as a suburban London fox can be – but because he’s stealthy. This fox prefers midnight to midday, and the cover of streetlights to four o’clock rays.
I’ve never been much of a soda drinker.
It’s that time of year again. Not Christmas, not Easter, not a birthday. It’s MCM London Comic Con week. In our house, it’s become a bit of a tradition. And this year, it seemed like a great opportunity to celebrate the geekier side of baking.
If you became a little bit obsessed with Breaking Bad, you’re not alone. Spanning five seasons and a seemingly endless fandom (even my nan tuned in), it’s the obvious choice for a television bake. But if you were a fan of Walter White, you’re probably also a fan of Saul Goodman – and more importantly, Better Call Saul.
My first experience with chocolate-covered strawberries was at a party.
