The other day Andrew messaged me a photo of what liked like a light brown miniature pumpkin pie "Can you please make me this?", he asked." "We used to love this at school, make sure you find the school's recipe". So of course, I did. I always do my best to make Andrew feel at home. Introducing the Gypsy Tart - a favorite among primary schools in London during the 1990s. I really tried my best.

Shortcrust Pastry + Muscovado Sugar and Condensed Milk Fluff

How to:

To begin, make a shortcrust pastry or use a pre-made one.
Bake pastry as directed.

Mix equal parts of Muscovado Sugar and Condensed Milk.
Pour into pastry. Bake until fluffy.


Who ever said the British were complicated people?


Hope everyone's weekend has been relaxing and productive!

Welcome to the new and improved Life Enchanted. 

This blog has transitioned many times.. but before I create something entirely new, I'd like to try once more at sharing my experiences.

Since my last post I have:

Decided to pursue my Masters in English

Had my first ride on a Clydesdale (above)

Celebrated the engagement of my big brother and his wonderful fiancé Stephanie

Baked a chocolate shortbread

Joined 4-H as a project leader!

This time around I promise to write more about where I live and less about how much I miss living in the UK! (haha) Washington State is a beautiful part of the Pacific Northwest and of our country, I hope to be able to spark your interest in perhaps visiting this part of the world someday!

To begin, I'd like to give you a little glimpse of my everyday life! Follow me on Youtube for my short videos and snippets of my life story. 

I hope your week has been one for the books!
