“The older I get, the more I believe in what I can’t
explain or understand, even more than the things
that are explainable and understandable.”

Yes Lilian, I understand. Or at least I think I do. Please explain.

I can’t really understand or explain how I managed to get my hands on my number one heart-throb Ricky Whittle on Saturday night in Blackpool. The universe works in mysterious ways and this glorious encounter has given me enough good palpitations to last for a fair few months. Ask, believe, receive indeed. I know that some of the ladies who read this blog and know who Ricky Whittle is will want more details but alas, I’m afraid that,”What happens in Blackpool stays in Blackpool.”

Anyhow, I am VERY behind on reporting on the test cooking that has been going on all over the world so am planning to get right back into that this week. We are putting out a second call for testers very soon so if you are game to assist please just drop us an email at

Ruthie’s cousin Judy had a go at Lilian’s Lemon Pie and the report back was very pleasing. “It was a hit” said Judy and elaborated: “It’s a light and fluffy way to approach a lemon pie. Really refreshing and not too heavy. Good spring or summer recipe. (And this is perfect for Ms Gish, as she probably would’ve been watching her weight anyway…)” Very true – she was a teeny tiny little thing La Gish. And not as sweet as you’d think according to Marion Davies…
