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…

In Hel’s Kitchen #2

Here is what we have been scofing down lately – As I work until 8 pm on average four nights a week, We eat this meal quite often. Its a favourite in our house because its quick and easy to prepare, foolproof and super tasty. (I never bother adding the extra 1/4 cup of water BTW). We eat one…

In Hel’s Kitchen #1

I love food, cooking and eating. Maybe, just maybe, I love the eating part a little bit too much for my own good! Never mind eh! Even though I love talking about food, I don’t really like blogging about food. I find typing up the ingredients and method really tedious. And, if Im honest, my posts…

I have made the obligatory parsnip soup, a sunday roast with lots of roast parsnips and yet more parsnip soup (I love homemade…

Chocolate Weetabix Slice

Tatties and Apps

So while the parents are hastily harvesting their allotment goodies before anymore sticky fingered, 5-a-day munching crims can pinch them, I currently have a glut of veg in my house. Its mostly potatoes and sweetcorn, no marrows this year TFFT – Does anyone have any good recipes involving six corn on the cob for 2…
