Slow roast pork (possibly again)
Thank you all of you who read my last post . I know this is normally a place for me to share my fairly inane, and fairly unoriginal drivellings about food, but occasionally, you know, an issue arises which is more important than what we ate for dinner. Actu...

Ginger & Coconut Surprise Cake
I'll cut to the chase here - the 'surprise' in this cake is that it tasted quite as good as it did, given my penchant for adapting with impunity. I managed to sneak in a baking session on Saturday afternoon, chores done, children delivered and recovered fro...

Lemon caramel cake
I love food. That's why I have a food blog. There's not much that I won't try, not much I don't like. But there are a few flavours that I keep going back to. Smoked paprika. Almonds. Lemon. I'd be hard pressed to choose between lemon and almond, particularl...

Bread by any other name
I haven't been baking much bread recently, at least not in the conventional sense. Bread is something I do tend to go through phases with, and I'm in a 'not baking bread' phase, which I feel a little uncomfortable about, but there we go. We're not eating th...

Beef & Chorizo Casserole
Ironic, I guess, and perhaps not entirely straight, that while I have been posting about having been a year in Wales, I am, in fact, in London, with the kids, staying with a great friend. We are combining collective childcare, boxing and coxing with various...

Chocolate orange campfire cakes
While the rest of the western world is putting up their Christmas trees and decking their halls, I have had my mind on camp fire cooking this last week. Not an obvious train of thought for early December, and the kids have do...

Poached eggs, chard and pancetta on toast
Ask me about how I feel about the Husband travelling. Go on.  I'll shrug, perhaps give you a wry smile, say something like " Well, to be honest I get twitchy if he hasn't been away for a couple of weeks " A hang over from the fact that we pretty much had a ...

Savoury Scones for the Six Nations
One of the very different things about living in Wales as compared to England is the strength of feeling invested in rugby. In England, yeah, plenty of people like rugby, but it's not a patch on the all-consuming, national pride inducing, mass tear provokin...

Expectation Management and Doughnuts
One of life's conundrums is, I think, how to manage expectations. Other people's. Your own.  Frankly, I'm not very good at it. I have noticed myself painfully enunciating to the children why their plans for a treehouse (equipped with car battery powered fil...

Food for Thought, Cardigan
The anniversaries are coming thick & fast, aren't they? February seems to be the month for the Recipe Junkie clan to 'do things'. The latest? Well, we've been in Wales a year.  And it looks like we're staying, with plans afoot for a permanent home, of which...

Reflections on Valentines and moving on
So it's Valentines Day on Saturday. As ever, there are lots of tempting food tales knocking around to help you show appreciation for your loved one. And yet again, I've failed to pre-empt this and have some suitable treats to share with you here, but the th...
