Today the boy and I made fresh egg pasta for lunch.

Cornflake Cookies

December 3, 2011

16

When I want to bake something I sometimes ask Ed and George what they fancy. Often Ed will say “Can you make cornflake biscuits like we used to have at school? They had cornflakes mixed into them and a cherry on top. I liked them.” I vaguely browse around the internet and can’t find a recipe […]

Pickle Post

October 25, 2011

So we’ve ridden the chutney wave and come out the other side. This year we are on a chutney break as we still have some of our own creations left and a few from family members and friends to work through. But late in the season we ended up with a couple of mini gluts. […]

Child Free Pumpkin

October 2, 2011

6

Every year we get a pumpkin or two and have great plans of what we are going to carve into it. Every year George get’s bored after about 10 minutes of seed scooping and goes off to do something else. I end up standing in the kitchen with pumpkin goo up my sleeves wondering why I […]

These Foolish Things

Why I have never made a fool before I don't know. Light, tangy, sweet, fruity, creamy, easy, beautiful.

Lime Syrup Drizzle Cakes

June 18, 2011

17

I am still learning the importance of a sense of order. I don’t mean having everything in its place, although that really helps. It’s about making sure that I do things in the right sequence. Every time I cook something I work out a better way…or rather I realise I have done something ‘arse about […]

Brandy Butter

December 23, 2010

5

Do you think of Brandy Butter as a bit odd? Or does it take you back to childhood Christmases and nicking spoonfuls out of the fridge? I’m in the latter category. In fact I only ever remember surreptitiously eating spoonfuls of it when no one was looking as I have never been a fan of […]

Saturday Staples – Crispy Chicken

November 27, 2010

7

Crispy Chicken get’s eaten in our house more regularly than anything else because it is a child friendly quick tea. I would feel bad about that if I bought it from the supermarket ready done. I don’t feel so guilty about this homemade version though because it’s low-fat and I can choose the quality of […]

Saturday Staples – Mars Bar Crispies

November 13, 2010

8

I thought I’d start a short series of mini, single photo posts about food that we eat regularly. Nothing fancy. Nothing complicated. Just everyday food that takes minutes to make and doesn’t need special equipment or ingredients. These chocolate crispy cakes are a cheap packed lunch standby, or a last minute offering to the School […]

Chutney 2010

A fab chutney to use up all those green tomatoes.

Make Granola

May 3, 2010

12

I have been meaning to make Granola for AGES. Ever since we got addicted to Dorset Cereal Honey Granola, then realised  that it costs nearly £4 a box. I finally got round to it last week and have since made a couple more batches to hone the technique. After a shout out on Twitter Apryl from […]

George’s Mini Pizza’s

January 16, 2010

6

I wanted a pizza for lunch, but all we had was crumpets, so I asked Mum if I could make some mini pizzas out of them. The ingredients are one crumpet, some tomato puree and ketchup, cheddar cheese and parmesan and a snipped up Peperami. The tomatoeyness squidges into the holes in the crumpets. First […]

Things to do when snowed in

January 6, 2010

4

We have kind of been snowed up a bit recently, and as George is always getting the stay-at-home-snack-attacks I thought I would make some Rocky Road. Version 1.0 was a bit of a shopping disaster, as due to the weather I ended up getting most of the provisions from our local petrol station, who needless […]
