Classic Victoria Sandwich Cake
Do you know, I was absolutely flabbergasted to discover that I have never blogged a recipe for a classic Victoria Sandwich cake? I still can't quite believe it.  I have been making Victoria Sandwiches, also known as Victoria Sponge cakes, since I was about ...

Persian lamb & vegetable stew - worth every second it is in the oven!
The blame for this recipe lies fairly and squarely with my birthday.  You see, I was lucky enough to be given "The Saffron Tales" by Yasmin Khan, which fired up my already well established liking for and curiosity about Persian - or Iranian - cuisine.  As y...

Quick cheesy scrambled eggs
This is one of my "hit and run" style of blog posts, that covers something I've made for myself - either breakfast, or lunch - that was too good not to share. This quick cheesy scrambled egg in a toasted pitta bread breakfast is one such.  I didn't have my ...

Cheesy Ham and Potato bake - a trip back in time
Oh I only wish I could show you how excited I am by this dish - and how completely stuffed but happy I was by the time I'd eaten it.  You see, it took me back to years ago when I would spend a week at my cousin's house and then she would spend a week at our...

Leek & bacon tart - a quiche-alike!
One of my favourite vegetables is the leek.  Now I know that friends would say there's not a vegetable that I don't like - and I admit they have a point.  However, leeks are right up there in my top 10, along with things like the humble spud and the princel...

Pressure cooker poached quince - delightfully fudgy and exotic
A few days ago, hubby came home with two gorgeously voluptuous, golden and deliciously fragrant, huge quince.  He found them at our local ethnic shop and they are certainly a whole other story to our native English quinces! I pondered, for a while, what to ...

Chicken with mushrooms - the name belies the flavour!
It sounds so simple that it is hard to believe it could be so tasty.  However, never underestimate the power of a tablespoonful of vinegar to the flavour of a dish! I was looking for a simple, no frills, mid week chicken dish that could be served with a cou...

Mead - *hic - yep, it's alcoholic and good for you!*
Yes, Mead!  That apparently old style alcoholic drink that used to be sold by Merrydown in this country, but appears to have fallen off the map.  That elixir of life for Norsemen down the ages, who by all accounts had a great liking for the stuff (and who w...

Rhubarb & Mead Semifreddo with compote - such a simple joy!
Okay, now before I go any further, I feel I must explain both Mead and Semifreddo - just in case. Mead is an alcoholic drink made (in a very skimpy nutshell) by mixing honey with yeast and water and leaving it to ferment.  Hubby has made a couple of batches...

Chicken, mushroom & black garlic slices - it's British Pie Week!
Now you all know, I'm sure, what a big fan I am of comfort food.  Well, when Jus-Rol (the ready made/ready rolled pastry people) got in touch with me and suggested I might like to create something to honour British Pie Week (which is their very own confecti...

Caraway & Lemon Sponge Cake - deliciously light as a feather!
I can't remember why I suddenly had a notion to make a caraway seed cake, all I know is that I'd been trying to make one for the last week or so.  Well, when I say "trying to" what I mean is trying to find time, rather than trying to and failing in a welter...
