A Pancake Recipe for Pancake Day

A Pancake Recipe for Pancake Day

I learned to cook with my mum and one of the earliest things she taught me was her pancake recipe and how to cook pancakes. I loved cracking the eggs, weighing out the ingredients but most of all I loved flipping them. I mostly missed the pan, decorated the floor and I had a devoted(…)

January In Season: Sea Bass Recipe with a Lemon Butter Sauce

January In Season: Sea Bass Recipe with a Lemon Butter Sauce

It’s hard to be inspired by seasonal produce in January if you’re not into hearty root veggies, game or slow cooking, however there is more to January than pheasant and cabbage.  Oranges are perfect now as are mussels, parsnips, beetroot and many types of fish including sardines, bass, bream, sole, mackerel, oysters and scallops.  Fish(…)

Sticky Strudel Buns Recipe

Sticky Strudel Buns Recipe

These delicious buns were the happy outcome of a mishap in the kitchen. My mother is Viennese and I grew up watching her effortlessly make apple strudel and I thought I’d give it a go. The messy result was a disaster but it gave me the idea for these sticky buns. Now I make them(…)

Best Christmas Day Gravy… Ever!

Best Christmas Day Gravy… Ever!

My imagination: Me wrapping tastefully bought presents, sipping homemade eggnog and writing Christmas cards while a huge real tree sits elegantly (and colour coordinated) in the corner with twinkling matching John Lewis lights. Reality: Me huffing around Tesco’s prepared to kill for the last pack of chestnut, sending last minute emails apologising for the fact(…)

November in Season: One Pot Wonders

November in Season: One Pot Wonders

November is a lot like December in Season with Brussels sprouts, chestnuts, cabbage, pumpkin and parsnips taking centre stage but I’m saving those recipes for December and the seasonal preparations. November is my husband’s favourite food month and he could live on ‘one pot’, slow cooked casserole dishes until March! I dug out my slow(…)

October in Season: Mushroom Soup

October in Season: Mushroom Soup

October is dominated by the big brash pumpkin and a variety of other squashes but there is more to October than Halloween and pumpkin pie.  The nights are drawing in and in spite of some unseasonably late good weather, there is a chill in the evenings and October is the perfect month for hearty warming(…)

Chocolate and Banana Muffins

Chocolate and Banana Muffins

Most normal households end up with a few manky looking speckled black bananas and this recipe for Chocolate and Banana Muffins, with perhaps the exception of a cracking Banana and Walnut tea loaf, frankly, is the best use for them. I was a latecomer to Nigella Lawson but totally got her watching her series based on(…)

August In Season: Apple Crumble Recipe and Grey Mullet

August In Season: Apple Crumble Recipe and Grey Mullet

Seasonally, August is very similar to July with fruit and veggies choices exploding from Pick Your Own Farms, allotments and supermarkets.  Whilst food now seems to be available all year round, regardless of season, it’s still best to choose food that hasn’t had to travel 4,000 miles to get to your plate or been super(…)
