Apple Anniversary Bowl

A year ago I was bridesmaid for one of my close friends. They got married on an old cider farm in Somerset, and were coming out to California for a visit for their one year Anniversary. I was looking for something nice for a gift, and came across a no longer available item on Etsy. […]

Crunchy Curried Egg Salad

The time has come where┬áI need to start making my own food again, as I am no longer being fed for free three times a day, and needing some nice quick tasty lunches! I decided to try out a new book, which I had received from my brother for my birthday, written by the authors […]

Scotch Pancakes with Rhubarb, Apple and Ginger Compote

This morning, I woke up, did a bit more of my sewing, went and fed my friend’s cats… then on the way home starting feeling a bit peckish. I could have had some boring cereal, but this morning, I felt the urge for pancakes. Not regular english pancakes, something a little more Scottish. A quick […]

Bake Sale Bakes: Rhubarb and Apple Softies

Here is recipe number 2 from my bake sale goodies. I always try and make at least one vegan friendly thing when we have a bake sale, as one of my coworkers is vegan and so I like to make sure everyone can have some goodies… and of course donate to charity! So I made […]

Irish Potato Apple Cake

Irish cooking. Full of potatoes right? Well this is a recipe to live up to stereotypes! I went to Dublin the weekend before last, and if you go away, of course you have to bring stuff into work.

Since I got my sourdough starter (Pauline) in July, I have made quite a few loaves. Some have been good, some not so good, some got welded to the surface of the baking stone because I was too impatient to wait for it to properly come up to temperature…………. However, all have been just the […]

Baking with Herman: take 7 – Banoffee Herman.

This post was a bit delayed I’m afraid, this week has been super hectic. It is also going to be the last Herman post for a while, I’ve ran out of inspiration temporarily, and want the freedom to explore making other things. I have enjoyed playing with the Herman recipe, and it has given me […]

Applesauce Softies

Over the weekend (while making Hermans), my kitchen slave (thanks Mum) chopped up lots of lovely apple into little bitty bits for the cakes. I had some leftover, so made it into applesauce with a view to making these lovelies that I had earmarked for making. P.S. my method of choice is chopped up apple, […]

Baking with Herman: take 3 – Almond, Apple, and Blackberry.

I actually gave away some Herman this time around, and made two carrot cakes (from the previous Herman post) as they were amazingly tasty, I upped the ground ginger in the second one and it came out lovely and fiery. I did then realise that my next bake day was this weekend, when I had […]
