Seeds, Rhubarb, Leeks, Gloves and Extensions

We live in a typical 50’s style bungalow with 2 bedrooms, one of which I use to work in and is stuffed full of all kinds of, erm, stuff. There is a decent sized kitchen, which somehow still can’t manage to hold a dining table, and a medium sized sitting...

Fritters, Soup, Gloves and Karen Millen

I made some lovely fritters for dinner yesterday. I grated the last of the carrots, small and wrinkly, fine chopped onion, fine chopped white cabbage and a grated parsnip that was going a bit soft. I would normally grate some potato and add that too, but as we would...

Glass ramekins and what to do with them

And in other news…..

I had a photographer down this week. I cooked up several recipes for him to take pictures of, and he took loads. He also wanted loads of me too, yeargh. Hate having my picture taken, that person in the picture is NOT me 🙁 Then today, a journalist phoned and...
