Leftovers Patties

You know when you do too much mash? Or carrots? Or anything else…. and you put it in a tub in the fridge to use up… always with the best of intentions, but then you find it again 3 weeks later and it has some weird fungal growth going on? Well, before it gets to […]

Gnocchi with a Cheesy Peasy Smoked Paprika Sauce

I have been lucky this week. It has been a week of tasty delights so far: Day 1 Lunch: Leftover Beetroot Risotto Day 1 Evening: Easy Cheesy Lentils from Rose Elliot (with added Peas and carrots otherwise I find it’s a little too much) Day 2 Lunch: Mothership Tuesday at Pieminister! Pie, Mash, Minted Peas, […]

Paul Hollywood’s Cheddar and Apple Sourdough. (and a cheese and pickle variation)

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 […]

Cheese, Pea, Red Pepper, and Garlic Scrambled Eggs

I consulted Rose, and settled on a nice risotto. ————————————————————————————— Butternut Squash and Sage Risotto recipe – taken from Rose Elliot’s New Complete Vegetarian   Ingredients   1.2l (2 pints) […]

Rose Elliot’s Spinach and Lentil Gratin.

My Mumsy came to visit this weekend, always the problem of what to feed a meat eater when you’re a vegetarian…. But I had been flicking through one of my books this week, looking for something to cook that wasn’t the same thing over again. This recipe caught my eye, and although it uses 1kg […]

Homity Pie – Pieminister style

Another book that has been languishing on my bookshelves for a while, is the book of that beloved Bristol institution… Pieminister. It is a happy Friday when it is a Pie-day, and with the Stokes Croft shop being within walking distance of the hospital…… So I decided that this weekend was the weekend to change […]
