Nutella Brownies - Easy Easter Baking with Kids

Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 30th March 2015

This month I’m bringing you possibly the easiest recipe known to man or, more importantly, to woman / man and child. This is school holiday baking at its most accessible. There’s no melting chocolate and no creaming of butter and sugar. All you need is a spatula and a willingness to get covered in chocolate spread. Ok, it’s not ground breaking - the recipe has been all over the internet for a good while now - but I hadn’t tried it until this weekend. I can now vouch for the fact that with only three ingredients, you can have great brownies at your fingertips.

Mother's Day

Posted by James McIntosh Monday, 9th March 2015

As the old saying goes, March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb.  I don’t know about you, but I do love when March arrives as the winter is nearly over.  It could still snow and get cold, but it’s getting there. So to change the season (ahead of time) I thought we could do a Spring inspired cake for Mother’s Day.

Pancake Day!

Posted by James McIntosh Monday, 16th February 2015

I’m sure you’re like me and when it comes to Pancake Day the big kid comes out.  Then perhaps the mop comes out, as one may have landed on the floor?  (Clean up is made so much easier if you have a dog).

Pancake Day, or Shrove Tuesday, as I’m sure we all know, was originally a Christian festival to use up ingredients prior to Lent, 40 days before we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus at Easter.  I always find it a good time to install a little self discipline. I overeat at Christmas, break my New Year’s resolutions by the 2nd January, then feel bad that, for me, it is not ‘new year, new  me’.  That’s why I like the tradition of Lent, it gives me a chance to prove to myself that I can be disciplined for a short period of time.  And I do find this instils an inner confidence in myself.

Sea Bream en Papillote

Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 9th February 2015

When I was pondering what recipe to make on theme of “food to share with your valentine” I initially thought of a fondue. I like the idea of food where you can’t try to be on your best behaviour – you’re going to get messy and see the ‘real’ valentine, not the perfectly mannered dining partner you might encounter during a meal in a high end and terrifyingly well mannered restaurant. Fondue had one thing right and one thing wrong. Right – it’s easy to make, so one of you isn’t going to feel like they’ve been working away all evening when they should be relaxing. Wrong – I don’t know about you but a vat full of cheese is more likely to make me want to curl up under a duvet than engage in sparkling conversation (or whatever). So, here is my alternative suggestion for messy but tasty eating: Sea Bream en Papillote.

Cooking a Dinner Party With Less Fat

Posted by James McIntosh Monday, 17th November 2014

I'm very proud to say at the grand age of 36 I have a 32" waist.  I do believe in the concept of "you are what you eat", but rather than being fanatical about food, I simply eat a healthy balanced diet.  Well, it works for me.  That means I can splurge and save on different ingredients and have naughty days complemented with healthier days.  But, it’s not all about me, so considering a dinner party, how do we ensure less fat is on the plate?

Cooking without recipes, cheerio to waste

Posted by James McIntosh Tuesday, 6th May 2014

I've seen Love Food Hate Waste demonstrate on the AGA Rangemaster cookery theatre all over the country in previous years. They have so many ideas on how to reduce leftovers and prevent waste at home. As an organisation I think they do a fabulous job, highlighting the public to the concept of saving food and reducing waste. A thing I work really hard to do. I'm great at using up all bits and pieces to make pasta sauces, stocks and freezing lemon wedges to add to my weekend tipple as citrus ice-cubes.
