So as we’re now over half way through the year, I thought I’d  have a look at whether I’ve stuck to those goals and how they’ve changed! 2012 Goals Review Goal set: Cook and Bake more often I have baked a few novelty cakes and some classic recipes, like a Victoria Sponge, but would like to try other baked goods.
