A GAS HOB OR AN INDUCTION HOB?
A tricky choice that needs some careful consideration! As the Rangemaster Home Economist I have worked on both of these hob types in our development lab here in Leamington Spa, and yes, I do have a favourite!0 Comments Share

Christmas seems a long time ago, winter is over and as the old saying goes 'March has come in like a lion and out like a lamb'. It's now that time of year when we can all look forward to some family time again and a lovely dinner to spend precious family moments together. I always like Easter, the weather is better, the days are starting to get lighter for longer, and the gloom of winter is past and a little time off work. Kids are off school, teachers are getting their well deserved break and for the rest of us it’s the first bank holiday of the year. In reality in my house, Easter Monday is DIY day. I'm not very good at DIY and it's never finished on Easter Monday!0 Comments Share

Classic or Contemporary - The Choice is Yours....
Posted by Hayley Gilbert Monday, 7th April 2014
When it comes to planning the perfect family kitchen, the first thing to consider is the style. There are two main looks - a contemporary finish with clean lines or a more classic scheme with a country feel, with variations in between.0 Comments Share
April Rhubarb and Custard Fool
Posted by Gill Bland Tuesday, 1st April 2014
More fool, you.
No, I’m not going Shakespearean on you, I’m giving you an instruction. I’m not a huge fan of whipped cream so when I read recently that the title “fool” may come from the French verb fouler (to press) and therefore the only requirement of a fool is that it contains pureed fruit, I thought it was time to have revisit fools for April. This recipe uses greek yoghurt for creaminess and thickens it with custard powder to add a bit of sweet-shop joy to the mix. You could go light on the custard powder and sprinkle with granola for a breakfast fool, or serve with cardamom sablé soldiers for a fragrant, summery dessert.
Ideally you’d use fresh rhubarb cooked with a little vanilla, but I couldn’t get hold of any fresh british rhubarb so tinned works fine. The frozen mixed berries are really there to provide colour, as tinned rhubarb doesn’t have the vibrancy of fresh.0 Comments Share

March Madness Maple-Corn Cookies
Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 24th March 2014
You can thank Lewis Carroll for this recipe. With their quirky ingredients, these cookies are ideal for your own Mad Hatter's tea party. Over the past couple of years there's been an upsurge in odd flavour combinations, from the comparatively tame salted caramel or white chocolate and black pepper to the more divisive Marmite brownie, we seem to be embracing a sense of adventure in our food. A few years ago I was lucky enough to go to Borneo and saw both red bean and sweetcorn ice-cream. It got me thinking that sweetcorn could be used as a natural sweetener, and so I bring you these cookies. Why not make them and see if people can guess what the secret ingredient is?0 Comments Share
