About Me

  • Hello! Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children. We live in a cosy terraced house on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in England which we are slowly renovating and making home. I have a passion for crochet and colour and love to share my creative journey. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world x

Those look YUMMY! Going to give it a try. Thanks Lucy. Barb


They look lovely.


Congrats on your success!

The last muffins I made were Carott Cake Muffins, from Nigells Domestic Goddess book. They were amazing, apart from the frosting was too runny so they looked like snow bottomed mountains instead of snow capped. Oops. Hubby's work mates never moan at a wrong batch though!

how do you find so much mood??? I'm so tired for be mom,and homemaking, and wife, its so hard!!! I envy you. Sorry my English... I'm brazilian. Please write to me:apstorm@hotmail.com


They look great - will have to give them a whirl.
Niblet is a big fan of some carroty/cinnamony muffins called honey buns in easy peasy sweetie pie cookbook.


well done on your success! They sound delicious.


Ah, delicious! A snack we like around here: Keep various fruits in the freezer (blueberries, etc). Cut an apple into a large bowl, cover with whatever frozen fruits you have around, sprinkle a tsp of sugar over the fruit, microwave for 2 min 30 seconds. Voila, it is done!


They not only look good, in my imagination I can smell that opened hot muffin in all of its cinnamony, appley yumminess! Thanks for the suggestion and the recipe!

Well done, they look lovely. I've got a no-fail muffin recipe that is very similar to the one you linked to. Mine was given to me by a school food technology teacher who said she had trialled lots of them. I used to make it for my cake and tea section of pregnancy yoga classes (that was the bit people came for, not the yoga). It was perfect, quick to make, just the right quantity and I could use up whatever I had to hand for a flavour. Anyway, if you want a comparison, it's on my blog as 'no fail muffins'. I must make it again for my little peeps soon.

They look lovely, and I don't like sultanas!


They look delicious, well done on cracking the muffin making!
If I wasn't trying to lose a few pounds I'd be making some myself.

They look delicious! Miam, as we say in France! Congratulations! It's a success. I should try...


They look great! I'm feeling hungry now, after reading that post! What a wonderful mum your children have! Rachel x


Oooh Lucy they look really yummy. Baking is a matter of luck and cosmic force - like gardening - I believe. Looks like both were on your side! x

Penny Peberdy

Well Done!


This delicious looking snack is just what I need today, how did you know? I shall make a double batch as there are extra kids coming home today with mine. Thank you Lucy!

Bravo! I am sitting here for a quick break, tea cup in hand, wishing I was sampling one of your muffins at the moment! I, too, have never made the perfect muffin - I am in awe!!!!!


I LOVE to bake and my favorite site for awesome, scrumptious recipes ( I own tons of the cookbooks too!) is tasteofhome.com . Totally wonderful site with more recipes than you could ever possibly try.. I love all your pictures Lucy! There is always so much color in them! I even love your colorful measuring spoons! Thanks for sharing with us!


Oooh, apple, cinnamon and sultanas are lip-smacking in a muffin. Yum. Might try that recipe, sounds delish.

Muffinish might just be my new favourite word!

I love muffins but don't have a good recipe for them. I end up using the boxed type. I will have to give it a go.


Lovely, Lucy! Xx


Aha! I'm down to the very last 2 or 3 apples scrumped (with permission) from our neighbours orchard last autumn and stored. I thought we were about appled-out having had crumbles/pies/baked/stewed/jam etc for months, but I think we could all raise some interest for those muffins. I shall set to tomorrow. Thank you Lucy for yet more inspiration

Your muffins look wonderful! I'm baking a pineapple cake for my hungry guys today. :)
