All Things Green Pizza

July 8, 2011


I was so impressed with the flatbread dough from my last post (Middle Eastern Mince Flatbread), that I decided to make it again and go with a vegetarian topping instead! So, hot on the heels of the last dough-based delight come this, All Things Green pizza. So called, because I threw on it whatever green […]

Middle Eastern Pomegranate Mince Flatbread

July 4, 2011


I always find myself drawn to recipes with flavours from the Middle East. I think it’s something to do with the clever mix of spices and sweetness in the dishes and the pungent aromas and evocative nature of the recipes. From tagines, to dips, to amazing baked vegetable dishes. The flavours pack-a-punch that just work […]

Summer Berry Pudding (schhhh frozen berries!)

June 30, 2011

Cherry Tomato & Chilli Jam

June 22, 2011

Not because my own is particularly superior (in fact there are some jolly lovely chutneys available farm shops up and down the country) but just because making it makes me feel good!! Slowly simmering a pan of vegetables, sugar, spices and vinegar until it becomes […]

Raspberry & Almond Bake Bars

June 18, 2011


I do very, very much love the combination of raspberry and almond. In nowhere can it’s deliciousness be beaten than in the perfect Bakewell Tart. Pastry, frangipane, tart raspberries and smooth almonds combine to create mouthfuls of heaven. Perfection!! This I should point out though is not a bakewell tart! It’s a bit of everything really…. A […]
