Spanish Cake
 I have no idea at all why this is called Spanish Cake.   There doesn't seem to be anything particularly Spanish about it.  I only know that it has always been called Spanish Cake.   Flavoured with lots of cinnamon and topped with a Maple Icing, I would thi...

Nan's Sugar Scones
I adapted this delicious recipe from one in the April issue of Delicious magazine.  From the moment I saw it, I knew it was something I wanted to bake.   A fairly ordinary buttermilk scone recipe which have lemon soaked sugar cubes pushed into their centres...

My Friday Finds . . .
  A few of the things I find each week which strike my fancy.  I hope that they strike yours as well.  I can't believe we are already at the end of April!  This month has flown by.  It feels more like February, but that's Spring for you!     Paint your own ...

Crusty Lasagna Buns
Generally speaking, I like to cook simple and easy things for dinners here in our house.  I had more than my fill of fancy cooking when I cooked at the Manor, enough to last me a lifetime.  Todd and I are simple folk with simple tastes.  Ordinary food suits...

Creamy Lemon Rice
This may not look like much  . . . its just rice after all, but don't let the simplicity of it fool you into thinking it isn't very special!  This is a fabulous side dish! This was a very popular side dish that I used to make for dinner parties when I cooke...

Small and Wonderful things . . .

Apple Pie Cake with a Brown Sugar Sauce
We had some people over for dinner tonight, and I cooked a pretty nice meal I guess. I did Chicken Savoyarde and Lemon Rice.   I also cooked carrots, and some green beans, a pea salad and some crusty french bread on the side.  I think everyone was pretty ha...

Saturday this and that . . .

British Bangers with Buttermilk and Chive Mash
Todd just loves his Banger's and Mash. If I want to make him happy, that's all I have to cook up. He could very easily  eat them more than once every week! I do think they have lovely sausages over here in the UK. . . well the best quality ones at any rat...
