  • Wednesday Night Pizza
    on Apr 23, 2010 in yeast ranting bread main course leftovers
    One of the things I dread most is a dinner rota. It's Tuesday, it must be spaghetti. Thursday night is curry. And Sunday? Sunday is the dreaded roast dinner, with the same meat and vegetables as we cooked badly last week.Individually, there's nothing...
  • Rhubarb & Ginger Ice Cream Tart
    on Apr 5, 2010 in quick fruit ice cream desserts
    I wanted to make something with rhubarb and ginger, and I was feeling inspired by the DB tian last month. I still had some of the pastry discs leftover (they keep really well), so I decided to make something a bit similar.I stewed a little rhubarb, a...
  • Easter Cake
    on Apr 1, 2010 in cake decorating fail baking recipes
    Having not one but two wedding cakes to make in the foreseeable future, I thought I should probably learn how to deal with fondant or royal icing. We were also visiting T's parents for Easter weekend, so I took the opportunity to make a bigger cake t...
  • Indulgent Chocolate MoussePart of the reason I find myself flipping through Leith's quite so often is that it's great for basic recipes. It's Delia for people who know how to boil an egg. After a batch of meringues left me with several egg yolks, I sought out a recipe for a c...
  • Orange Tian - March Daring BakersThis month's challenge almost totally passed me by, and it was only last week I remembered I had to do it!The 2010 March Daring Baker’s challenge was hosted by Jennifer of Chocolate Shavings. She chose Orange Tian as the challenge for this month...
  • Black and White Shortbread
    on Mar 24, 2010 in biscuits snack baking chocolate recipes
    I have been shying away from some of the more frivolous cookbooks in my collection, and find myself returning again and again to the Leith's Cookery Bible. I quite like the way pages upon pages of it are filled with French sounding dishes I've never...
  • Australia Highlights
    on Mar 20, 2010 in ranting travels
    The worst part about holidays is when you have to come back. After several flights, 47 hours without sleep, and a rather large duty free bag full of TimTams, we arrived back to a rather cold and gray Edinburgh. Without the motivation of sunshine and...
  • Onion Soup with Cheddar Croutons
    on Mar 10, 2010 in lunch soup recipes
    Up to the age of about 15, I was a bit of a fussy eater. I would often decide what to eat in restaurant by ruling out all the dishes that contained things I didn't like, leaving a choice of only one or two dishes. I got away with being fussy, because...
  • Tiramisu - Daring Baker's February Challenge
    on Feb 27, 2010 in Daring Bakers coffee baking desserts
    Another month, another challenge!The February 2010 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Aparna of My Diverse Kitchen and Deeba of Passionate About Baking. They chose Tiramisu as the challenge for the month. Their challenge recipe is based on reci...
  • Salted Caramel MacaronsMy first three attempts at macarons were pretty disastrous. Even looking back at the photos is making me cringe at how bad they were! My first go at a recipe from the Ottolenghi cookbook also entered into the "FAIL" category. I saw a few other blogs...
