Lemon & Poppy Seed Cake
So, there it is then (as they say around here). We have bought a house here in West Wales.  A wonderful house. A house that I have carried around in my heart since I stepped over the threshold in January, through the stress and embuggerance that is buying h...

Dà Mhìle Gin (and other things)
A couple of years ago, a friend turned up at a party we were holding with a bottle of gin. Welsh gin. Organic gin. There was about a quarter of a bottle left when she arrived, none when she left. " Pretty good gin ", I thought. So imagine my surprise and de...

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...

Lobster
Meet Larry... Larry the Lobster As birthdays go, I'm not one to get that worked up about them, or presents. There's not much I want and I certainly don't hope for or expect lavish gifts that seem to be de rigueur these days. I'll always remember being asked...

Chorizo & Chard risotto
The joy and the curse of the veg box is that you never know what you are going to get. Potatoes, carrots, onions are usually a given, but then what. Just as you've getting used to a steady stream of turnips, celeriac, beetroots, cabbage and the like, when (...

Sticky Ginger Cake with Lemon Icing
So I was sneaking a piece of this ginger cake from the kitchen when I realised that I hadn't written a blog for OVER A MONTH.  There's a lot going on, of which more, I hope, in a few weeks when 'the lot' has concluded and I can tell you all about it (I expe...

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...
