A good use for bacon fat :)
These cookies are just like the ones that grandma used to make.

Looking for a really good 'dunking' biscuit - something with a bit of crunch, that stays together and maybe has a hint of ginger or chocolate. These might fit the bill...
A digestive is a proper British biscuit dating back to the 19th Century. The name is due to the inclusion in the original recipes of bicarbonate of soda which was believed to help the digestion. A good digestive should be sweet enough to dunk in a cup of tea but savoury enough to serve with a good wedge of cheese. The very best kind of digestives are, in my opinion, the ones dipped in chocolate. I like to make these with whole wheat spelt flour b...

Don't have Roncal but could use Parmesan, and goat's cheese for the cream. This sounds excellent and made with easy peasy frozen peas :)

Apricot cardamom sounds divine! But also pretty cinnamon rolls too, plus the tahini ones sound interesting.
A delicate, rich, light bread with 3 fillings: cinnamon sugar, tahini sesame brown sugar, and brandied apricot.

Ask my colleagues what I did this weekend, and they’ll tell you what I told them: relax, relax, relax. And truly, that’s what I intended to do. It’s been an intense month at work, and I’ve been looking forward to

If Jucker Farm has Kombacha Squash I want to make this, if not then we can try with another kind of squash.
This velvety, spiced squash soup has layers of flavor, thanks to red chiles, tangy lemon juice and apple cider vinegar, plus a subtle touch of fish sauce.

Forgot to say - potimarron pumpkins should be fine too. Had an extended discussion with someone at the veg counter at the fancy supermarket in HB (now a Migros) about the "marron" in potimarron and the "kuri" in many Japanese pumpkin variety names both meaning "chestnut".

And after thinking about it, I'm not entirely sure what is meant by a kabocha. It's just the word for pumpkin in Japanese rather than a variety, but it might be a variety in English or else just mean a Japanese-style pumpkin.

Brown butter + banana = inspired. But add some nut streusel (maybe walnut?) and that's a cherry on top!
This recipe is inspired by the banana bread I made during my childhood from "The Blender Cookbook." I can't find it anywhere online. I think it's from the manual that came with our blender. This month, I've been snacking on bananas with yogurt and chopped peanuts. This recipe takes these ingredients to another level. If you add chocolate sauce and vanilla bean ice cream, it's a lovely riff on a banana split. Feel free to use any kind of nut for t...

Love this shop! Amazing selection of delicious sauces and chilis, salts and wine. Great service and helpful advice on how to use their wide selection in cooking. They are sweet enough to have some kids toys to entertain the little ones too. They have great events too - a great BBQ in the square opposite in the summer. Try the green or red Thai curry paste, the tikka paste and the chili ketchup. Just remember the spice scale goes all the way to 12 - which is very spicy!

Liked this place a lot. Sadly they'd run out of the protein bowl when I ate there on a Monday evening, but the avocado sandwich I had instead was excellent! The bread was delicious and the green juice that I ordered was also lovely. Will definitely be back!

Huge shopping center open till late (very late if you come from anywhere that doesn't have malls that stay open till midnight!). Good selection of shops - the usual high street fare plus some other brands I'd not heard of. Excellent food court too, and cinema on top floor, although I didn't try that out. I heard there is also a rooftop bar somewhere but didn't get that far given all the shops!

Lovely chilled out little B&B with charming owner and gorgeous pool and views. Highly recommend! I booked through airbnb which made it super easy. The owners son kindly organised airport transfer for me, which made getting there from Lisbon very easy. They also booked a very nice massage on my first evening, which was the perfect way to start my visit. Delicious breakfasts on the pool terrace, light meals and snacks if you want them, parking if you are coming by car and lots of grounds to explore with kids. The only complaint was that Wi-Fi didn't work in room but that made me relax more! Wi-Fi by the pool works very well however!

Decent enough hotel in a not so thrilling part of Lisbon. Lifts don't work well and breakfast is very boring. But close to Oriente station and metro, and Vasco de Gama shopping center. Rooms reasonably comfortable, towels rough and toiletries smell revolting!

Weirdly modern in parts, and old fashioned and run down in others, this is a disjointed airport, although one that is very well connected to the city. Nonetheless the lines moved pretty quickly, the staff were helpful and there is a huge and varied duty free area past security. It's pretty packed and chaotic at arrivals, and they could do with some better parking/ traffic rules and signage. Other than an expansion into another terminal I don't see how they could improve the place.

Much less crowded than the original just around the corner, but still lots of seating and a lovely covered terrace above the street to people watch and cool off on. Cakes were very good, although I have nothing to compare to so no idea if these were the best Travesseiro - I tried the original almond which was lovely, and the chocolate with had Nutella inside. Both delicious and a lot lighter than expected.
