The Farmers’ Market Edition

Posted on

Mabel’s Log: The Farmers’ Market Edition Today we’re talking about markets, namely farmers markets and country markets as Christmas markets just put me off the scale with excitement and deserve a whole post all to themselves. The other day, the Murch clan ventured out into the Scottish countryside to Logierait country market. It’s just off Read the Rest »

Mabel’s Gorgeous and Gooey White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Posted on

These are amazing. I made a LOT of them last night, and let me tell you there aren’t many left. I know, I disgust even myself. Great for whipping up super fast, eating warm, eating cold, freezing for later, making with kids, taking to a bake sale, munching over a catch-up with friends, giving to Read the Rest »

Organic Veggie Boxes of Love

Posted on

By Kezia Hall Organic has been the buzz word here on The Log all week as we celebrate Organic Beauty Week, and as you know from my organic DIY face cream recipe I love a good natural and organic beauty product! But its not just about what we put on our bodies, its also about Read the Rest »

When life gives you lemons, make Mabel’s Lemon Drizzle Loaf

Posted on

Now, my love for a Lemon Drizzle is no secret. I don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s the mixture of the sweet and the sour, maybe it’s the sticky goodness on top, maybe it’s that moist (creepiest word ever), spongy middle. Whatever it is, it means there’s no way I can just have one Read the Rest »

Vintage Kitchenalia That WORKS

Posted on

It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to decipher that I love a bit of vintage. I really do. I love things that tell a story, that were born before me and that have a heavy helping of rustic charm. My house is full of a lot of stuff that many would call junk, and to Read the Rest »

To Coffee Or Not To Coffee?

Posted on

By Kezia Hall We are all a bit coffee obsessed, are we not? Never more than five minutes from a coffee shop with all the vanilla lattes and skinny flat whites we could possibly desire. Complete in takeaway cups that have become as much of an accessory as a Marc Jacobs bag (I can dream). Read the Rest »

A Little Dessert We Like To Call, ‘Peachy Keen’

Posted on

Listen, if ever Mary Berry got Mabel in to do a Great British Bake Off technical challenge … then THIS IS IT. I’m really excelling myself right now. What an absolute beast. For some reason, I had the notion to do a Baked Alaska as a flashy type of dessert to impress our pals coming over for Read the Rest »

The Commonwealth Legacy – Feeling Inspired To Get Naturally Slim?

Posted on

By Kezia Hall Weight loss is one hot potato. With so much conflicting information out there on what to eat, when to eat and even how to eat that it can all just seem a bit overwhelming. Do you eat like a vegan or like a caveman? Do you eat after 8pm or before 10am? Read the Rest »

A Redwine Risotto Fit For Friends

Posted on

We’ve all got our dinner party menu staples. My folks rotate “MENU A” (prawn cocktail, chicken and broccoli bake and rhubarb crumble) and “MENU B” (melon balls, mincey pasta and shop bought dessert), even to this day. These are the fail-safe, mistake-proof meals that can satisfy the masses at the same time as allowing you Read the Rest »

ALL HAIL CAPTAIN KALE

Posted on

By Amy Murch I don’t need to check out Cosmo’s latest issue, or even have a one to one with our superfood and health queen Kezia to know that Kale is good for you and I should be eating more. Why? It’s green, sits beside all the lettuces, and smells of Broccoli. It’s got be Read the Rest »
