Kirby Style Comfort Food: Jolly Cakes

In this house, when people come to visit and have a Marsh breakfast, generally Mr M makes the full works. I’m actually not a fan. My favourite thing for breakfast is one of those family recipes where no one is really sure where it came from, but is a well-loved standby when you need something […]

Thai Spiced Butternut Squash Soup

The weather. It has turned. I was working last night, and it was cold, drizzly, and horrible. It was also quite busy, and I didn’t get a lot of sleep. So today has been a bad day, in all kinds of ways. But rather than go into all of them, I’m going to share with […]

Yeah I made a Brownie in the Microwave….. Don’t judge me.

So, today started off well…. and productively. I went to the cake decorating shop and bought some teal coloured fondant icing ready to make some flowers for my friend’s sister’s wedding cake. Oh, and finished the book I was reading… P.s. everyone buy Summer Loving by Rivka Spicer. It’s awesome. Back to what I was […]

Cheese and Thyme Pretzels

A couple of weeks ago I saw a post about homemade soft pretzels on Diary of a Mad Crafter and decided I sooo wanted to make me some of them! I then semi forgot about them again until my friend brought in a giant soft pretzel to work (yes, soft pretzels have made it to […]

Mrs M’s Birthday Treats: take 3 – Ginger Wookies

Up until about a week ago, I had never seen Star Wars. I know. Mr M bought me these: …so as part of my birthday stuff for work i decided to make some Wookies. Cue attempts to sound like Chewbacca……and utter failure! Each time I take things into work I try to do some vegan […]

Rose Elliot’s Mediterranean Barley Risotto

I did mean to make this yesterday… but time sort of got away from me, and I was completing my Star Wars education by watching Return of the Jedi…. Yes, up until this last week (when I bought Mr M the complete saga on Bluray), I had never seen Star Wars…. This was a recipe […]

Chocolate-bottom Macaroon Cookies

Coconut Macaroons. I reckon we can class them as British. These beauties are easy, tasty, and smell absolutely gorgeous while baking, filling the house with coconutty loveliness. ——————————————- Chocolate-bottom Macaroon Cookies Recipe – taken from Vegan Cookies invade your Cookie Jar by Ida Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero Ingredients 3 ounces extra firm silken […]

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, […]

Spicy Vegetable and Quinoa Laksa

Another lazy person dish, when you don’t want to cook something too involved, or don’t have time to go to the supermarket. It once again uses the good old frozen mixed vegetables, if you were super keen then of course fresh would be ace, and any combination is just dandy. It also comes from a […]

Apricot Muesli Flapjack

A while ago, when I made hobnobs for hobnob day, I made a seedy, apricot-y variation, inspired by one of my favourite flapjack recipes. As I sat on my peasant wagon (bus) home, I had the urge to make some again……. possibly due to the fact that I was hungry and stuck on a bus. […]
