I found your site only three days ago. I rarely leave comments but feel compelled to on this occasion. I made your lemon drizzle traybake yesterday - amazing, really! It turned out so well and was so easy and quick to make. It is good to have a 'UK' site using measurements which makes it so much easier to follow recipes. Yes I can use American/Australian recipes but I like easy! Also lovely to 'meet' a down to earth cook/baker who admits to mistakes in the learning process. I am now going to check out some more of your recipes. Despite having well over 100 cook books which I can read like novels, I also love to check out the web. Sometimes for speed and sometimes for pure interest.

Hi Miss Kitchen Mason, I may not have left many comments, but certainly have enjoyed your posts since I found your blog. Today, I took some time to savor your beautiful blog again, for the last hour or so. Your recipes and posts are top notch. Your blog is one of a hidden gems. I will definitely come back and be amused by your culinary skills again, and meanwhile learn a thing or two (understatement). Kitchen Mason or Kitchen Maestro!
