Lemon Cake on things{we}make

Sometimes you just need a no-nonsense cake. One for the weekend, obligingly providing slices of dense, butteriness with every cup of tea. One for when friends are calling in and you want to offer sustenance, but nothing too fussy. One to wrap in foil and take on a camping trip or to stuff into a rucksack for a walk on […]

Things{we}make Apple Turnovers

It’s been a while, so I thought I’d break us in gently with a nice, simple turnover. We’ve been through a lot you and I. We’ve made good things and bad things, sown stuff and grown stuff, been places and filled our faces. I feel sad that I’ve not been sharing, but there are times […]

Stone-baked pizza - from a barbecue. Maybe we don't need that fancy wood fired oven after all.

Things{we}make - Brisket in a Bun

Things work out for the best when we all know where we stand. I stand next to the oven so I can pull the best bits off the brisket when it's cooked.
