Strawberries always look so tasty in food photography and even more so against this vibrant background… time to take advantage of all the lovely fresh strawberries that are currently in season!
Ready for a little MEAT FREE Monday inspirations? How about stuffed long sweet peppers with Moroccan styled couscous and Feta cheese… yum! Big winner in our house!
Thinking about lunch already and it’s only 9.30!
Looks like it going to be a hot one today… so let’s eat buckets of ice cream!
I love summer weekends, they’re long, warm and flowery. Have you noticed all the Elderflowers in full bloom at the moment? I’ve been seeing it everywhere and I couldn’t resist picking some and trying to make elderflower cordial (for the first time). I was really pleased to discover it’s very simple and worked out just perfect for this week’s 52 Weekends No.36 – Elderflower cordial.
All you need is 8 elderflower heads, 250g caster sugar, 2 tbsp honey, 500ml water, 1 lemon (zest and juice 1 half and slice the other half). Slowly bring to the boil the water, sugar and honey and when the sugar has dissolved take off the heat and add the elderflower flowers facing down then add all the other ingredients and leave in the pan with lid on for 24 hours. Finally strain through muslin and store in a sterilized jar. Why not give it a try?!
Today is AppleSauce Cake day…who knew?! And apparently the best way to celebrate is to make one of these cakes and eat it…. can’t argue with that!
Cream together 110g butter with 200g caster sugar, then add 250g apple sauce, 250g flour, 1tsp bicarbonate of soda, 1tsp ground cinnamon and quarter tsp ground cloves. Once mixed add 75g raisins and 60g chopped walnuts. Bake for 40mins at 180c. YUM!
MEAT FREE MONDAY – I feel like I want to just eat sweet things today, like this Apple Tart!
Good Morning and welcome to another Meat Free Monday! Also, last week I forgot that the 13th May was National Hummus Day, so it’s a week late but here it is… beetroot Hummus. I love this stuff not just because of it’s great colour but it is super tasty too!
National Vegetarian Week runs from the 14th to the 20th May and it’s all about eating delicious vegetarian food. I’ve been a vegetarian for over 20 years and I love it and I love to share vegetarian food ideas and inspiration. Maybe this week can help inspire you to experiment with a new recipe and try something new!
I’ve been so looking forward to posting this Meat Free Monday… I finally got my hands on a jar on Nowt Poncy’s Curry Sauce and I have to say it was so worth the wait! It’s vegan friendly so I decided to keep my curry Vegan too and cooked it with cauliflower and veg, but I hear it’s perfect with prawns. This has got the be the most authentic tasting ready made curry sauce I’ve ever tasted… it taste like you made it yourself because it has a wonderful chunky tomato sauce base. It’s nothing like any other curry sauce you buy in the supermarkets, it’s closer to the authentic recipes you may have tasted with traditional cooked curries. Just divine!
