A few Sticky Buns

May 22, 2016

8

Morning all. Ed is on his Sunday morning walk in the woods with Ernie and George is having his first lie in for weeks so I’ve just got time to share my sticky buns with you. There are many, many more buns to be found on thingswemake but I like this recipe as it’s not […]

Carrot Cakes

March 21, 2016

6

I had fun making these cakes for this month’s Center Parcs blog. I’ve wanted to share these mini carrot cakes with you for a while. It’s a failsafe recipe and they are very moist and moreish, especially with the tangy cream cheese frosting. Instead of my usual standby of making cakes and sticking mini eggs on […]

Pannacotta with Rhubarb

March 17, 2016

4

I’ve just bought some new season rhubarb. Young and tender and pink as you like. I love these slender, forced Timperley stems. They are so tender and not at all stringy like the rhubarb my Mum used to grow. It makes me think that Spring is really on the way. It’s a real toss-up as […]

The Easiest Coconut & Lime Loaf

March 5, 2016

Oh my. Have I got a back catalogue building up? Yes…yes I have. I keep developing and jotting down recipes. Testing, eating, altering, trying again. I write them up in draft and just don’t get around to taking a photo and posting them on here. Here’s one to be going on with. As with most […]

Oven-baked chicken with tangy, barbecue sauce, crisp bacon and melty cheese all mopped up with potato wedges. I spoil you, really I do.

Lemon Loaf Cake

May 25, 2015

16

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 […]

George’s Focaccia

Focaccia - Just bread with nice bits in.

Chick Pea and Potato Curry

April 16, 2015

6

This is a standby meal for us when it looks like the cupboards are bare but for a couple of handfuls of new potatoes rolling about in the salad drawer and some fresh herbs. We had this last week on our return from a sunny day at The Yorkshire Sculpture Park, hence the quick tray photo […]

Cheese Scones & New Kitchens

March 2, 2015

21

Can it be true? Can my kitchen finally be finished and I can get on with all the cooking? Seriously, it felt like years to get this far (11 to be precise) First we revelled in the idea of going out for dinner and several takeaways per week, but it’s surprising how quickly the novelty […]

Gingerbread

This old fashioned Gingerbread tastes more delicious than the simple recipe has any right to. Sometimes the old ones are the best.

Apple Turnovers

December 17, 2014

15

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 […]

Barbecue Pizza

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

Brisket in a Bun

September 15, 2014

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.

Chocolate Dream Cake

Choose life: Choose a big meringuey pudding that takes up a whole shelf in the fridge and a weeks worth of calories in your belly.
