Chocolate Cake

Chocolate Cake

The Gods must have been smiling on me the other day, as after school, the Smalls played together so nicely-no squabbling, poking or teasing-very lovely indeed. To celebrate the occasion (and in a vain attempt to reinforce the idea that this is the kind of behaviour that we want…) I decided to make pudding. At … Continue reading

Roasted Red Pepper Pesto

Roasted Red Pepper Pesto

I made this at the weekend for a super quick and easy, very yummy tea, and felt the need to share with you! I used to make pesto following a recipe very carefully, and if we didn’t have pine nuts, we couldn’t have pesto (btw how expensive are pine nuts..?!) But lately I’ve been experimenting … Continue reading

Elderflower and Almond Cake

Elderflower and Almond Cake

It’s been a while since I blogged a Make, and I apologise. My sewing machine is STILL away being serviced. I would get very cross, but everytime I ring up for a progress report, I get a very sweet, very elderly sounding lady on the phone, and it just feels wrong to go mad at … Continue reading

Lumberjack Cake

Lumberjack Cake

What an awesome name for a cake! I was all out of cake inspiration the other day, and was flicking through a River Cottage Baking supplement that came with a newspaper a while back, and stumbled across it. It’s delicious! And *reasonably* healthy. Well, there is fruit in it… This is what you need for … Continue reading

Hokey Pokey

Hokey Pokey

No, not the Hokey Cokey, Hokey Pokey. I can’t remember what the other name is for it-this is Nigella’s name, and I like it, and it’s her recipe, so I’m sticking with it! Basically, it’s a bit like the stuff on the inside of a Crunchie Bar. I made some last week, as a thank … Continue reading

Anzac Biscuits

Anzac Biscuits

Did you know today is Anzac Day? According to Wikipedia: “Anzac Day marks the anniversary of the first campaign that led to major casualties for Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War” and “is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders … Continue reading

Dead Bread

Dead Bread

I have posted couple of times about the great Live Better site from the Guardian. Last month was all about food waste, and the challenge was to go a whole week without producing any food waste. Now, I think we are pretty hot on food waste. I take a perverse pride in using up all … Continue reading

Marmalade

Marmalade

FINALLY! I made marmalade 🙂 I have been meaning to make it for several years, but the thought of all the chopping and peeling really put me off. Then I saw that Riverford were doing a special ‘marmalade bag’ with seville oranges and lemons, and a recipe, and I decided that this would be the … Continue reading

One biscuit, a bazillion ways

One biscuit, a bazillion ways

OK, so maybe not technically quite a bazillion, but pretty close… You may or may not have seen my post about my fave ever biscuit recipe-it is from Nigella Christmas and is her Chocolate Shortbread Cookies. What I LOVE about the recipe is a) it is super easy-bung it all the mixer and done; b) … Continue reading

Last Minute Gifts #2

This one is a bit of a cheat, and is an update on last year’s Ginger Fudge,  which was an adaptation of Nigella’s Dark Chocolate and Pistachio Fudge from Nigella Express. This is Christmas Pudding Fudge, and it is quite delicious! This is what you need: 350g dark chocolate, or a combination of milk and dark-the more … Continue reading
