“Any attempt at action is better than inaction. An attempt can go wrong, but inaction inevitably results in failure.” — Miep Gies 

Next time you find yourself thinking, “Shall I or Shall I not?” remember these words. I like the implication that if something goes wrong, it is not a failure; it is a learning experience.


Hours for 4th July: 8:00, 9:30, 11:00

No Kids & Teens Classes


Even though I have been in the USA for over 20 years and have been an American citizen for almost the same number of years, I still feel a little uncomfortable on 4th July (given my origins). And when I feel even a little stressed, I bake. And 4th July seems to be synonymous with food.

I was looking for a recipe that would be sort of healthful and definitely a ‘comfort’ type food and be truly American. And I found “Maple Bacon Pancake Muffins”. Have just made them. Actually used two recipes in order to make them ‘Paleo’ and to fit with ingredients I had on the boat. 

Candied Bacon: from the Bacon recipe: http://fedandfit.com/maple-bacon-pancake-muffins/

Batter: from the Sausage recipe: https://www.jaysbakingmecrazy.com/2017/02/19/paleo-sausage-pancake-muffins/

Verdict: Quite yum 😋  (Paul better get out of the engine room if he wants to sample one; they are disappearing fast.)


*****Bring A Friend: Your friends will have no excuse as you are able to give them lots of warning and time to plan: Thursday, 12 July, any of the classes.
