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...

Language matters & lemon cake
So despite my ever so slightly smug assertions that I would be signing up to Welsh lessons pretty much as soon as we moved, it took me nearly a year. A year in which it quickly became clear that where we are living, a huge proportion of people choose to spe...

'Against all the odds' chocolate cake
One of the reasons I would dearly love to be Felicity Cloake is that I'd get the opportunity - people would even PAY me - to spend hours dithering around in the kitchen perfecting what I want to share with anyone who cares to read. I do occasionally toy wit...

Don't judge a soup by its colour...
Last Saturday we were at a wedding where the starter for the post ceremony lunch was soup. I can be quite suspicious of soup produced in big kitchens, having too often been presented with something that's just too pretty and too smooth to be convincingly 'h...

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...

Chorizo Crusted Cod
Some things don't need waffle to accompany them - they just need good homemade chunky oven chips and perhaps some fresh, local PSB. This is absolutely my favourite way to cook white fish at the moment. I used cod in the title of this post, and I have used c...

The 30g salad - with a kick ass harissa & pomegranate molasses dressing #salad #healthyeating 
No, it's not a solitary, meagre 30g of salad, but what I thought I might rather catchily call a '30g' salad if, you guessed it, I used 30g of all the ingredients. As you'll see, though, it didn't quite work like that, partly ...
