This makes a great, healthy snack!
Autumn and the start of winter is a beautiful time of year here in Northumberland.
Cold, clear, crisp mornings with short days and vivid sunsets. It’s still possible to head out on a walk or go for a picnic even if it’s just to the bottom of the garden.
A winter picnic, for me, must have at least three things…a big flask of tea (not coffee because that, to my mind, is for summer picnics of boiled eggs and sandwiches and steamy flasks of coffee. No, it must be tea!) and a piece of fruit cake…but first, a pastry or big homemade sausage roll!
So with that in mind, here’s my easy rough puff pastry recipe. It freezes well and will make savoury or sweet pies and pastries.
A great chutney, it goes with everything from cheese, homemade pork pie, to cold sausage.
At last I have perfected this lamb kebab recipe! Everything that is wrong with a kebab is made right with this garlicky, spicy, meaty treat.
Courgettes may not seem like the natural ingredient for a cake but they actually work really well and this recipe makes a fabulous, sweet, spiced loaf!
Experiment with the spices and added ingredients to find the perfect combination for you!
I’m so grateful to my friend Lucy for teaching me to make mayonnaise so many years ago. Every time I make it I think of her and being able to make your own seems so much more useful these days. It’s the perfect addition to pasta salads, sandwiches, dips……….or just as a huge dollop on the side of the plate with your homemade potato wedges!
Yorkshires are usually popular with the whole family and really complete a Sunday roast! This recipe has never failed me. Just make sure that the oil is really hot when you pour in the batter.
