I Made Bread!

Just dropping by to share this bread recipe. ‘Cos who doesn’t love a good old #pyrexinaction perv every once in a while! Ok, just me then! Its a no-knead bread made in Pyrex. And its another reason for all us Pyrex hoarders to justify our numerous mixing bowls!!! Plus the bread is really tasty, so…

Pyrex Stuff That Is Not Pyrex

I want to share a few Pyrex bits and bobs that I have accumulated over the years. First up is this old American magazine advert that I bought cheap off Ebay, which I have framed (badly), and displayed in the kitchen. I love it because Pyrex really is a joy for “fixing, mixing, cooking, serving…

Lately #16

Oh dear, its October and I haven’t blogged! I know – I will do a quickie/bullet points/catch up type of post to dip my toes back into blogging and hopefully it will spur me on to write more posts soon! Q – What have I been up to, then? A – Not much as usual,…

In Hel’s Kitchen #3

It seems that every time I talk about starting a new feature on here it is the kiss of death for it! Remember Design classics, Slow Cooking Sunday and In Hel’s kitchen anyone? Note to self – I must try harder! This post has been in my drafts since May (!!) because I have not got my act…

At Last, A Complete Set Of Pyrex!

I find the simplest type of blog posts like “here’s some new to me Pyrex, now look at the pretty pictures” are the hardest for me to write. I find it much easier to ramble on about random crap incoherently (as demonstrated in my previous post), than edit myself, keeping things short and sweet and to the point!…

Nice New Pyrex

Did you know that 2015 is Pyrex’s 100th anniversary? And that they have bought out some limited edition commemorative pieces to celebrate their centenary? I must admit that I have been meaning to blog about this for a while, so its probably old news now! In the UK there is a special edition measuring jug (which I…
