It’s that time of year again

Posted by Alexandra Dibble Tuesday, 15th November 2016

It’s that time of year again, the weather is getting cold, the hat, scarves, coats and gloves are being dug out of wardrobes, all the takeaway coffee cups have turned red and that certain department store have released the highly anticipated Christmas advert.

Making the most of the Rangemaster Steam Oven

Posted by Alexandra Dibble Tuesday, 1st November 2016

With the launch of the new range of built in appliances comprising of 19 products, the one that is most exciting for me is the Rangemaster Steam Oven.

When you say the words Steam Oven to most people they automatically think of vegetables and fish, and the most asked question I get as the AGA Rangemaster Group Home Economist is “why would I need an oven to just cook fish and vegetables”. Well in answer to that question, the steam oven is much more versatile than you may think and can be used all through the day and not just for the fish and veggies at dinner time.

Pumpkin Toffee Apple Cake

Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 31st October 2016

We’re finally there. Gone are the teasing summer months when hot, sweltering gorgeous sunny days mix equally and frequently with grey, rainy nothing-type days. Autumn has begun. Cold nights, blue skies, crunchy leaves. This recipe was meant to be for bonfire night but you may notice that I’ve basically thrown the autumn kitchen-sink at it. I has wholemeal for stodgy goodness, pumpkin as a nod to the increasingly pervading PSL flavour, crumble topping because we’re heading towards custard season and toffee apple to keep the 5th Novemberists happy.

Lunchbox Muffins

Posted by Gill Bland Thursday, 20th October 2016

When researching for a baking idea that could be used to fill a spot in the lunchbox and the stomach at the start of a new term I read lots of interesting ideas about home-made sushi, bread on sticks and pretty bento boxes. Let’s be honest though, the first week is over and we’re into the long slog of the academic year and our resolve to be healthy and home-made is probably waning. What we really want is not a fiddly, pretty piece of sandwich art but something we can throw together with minimal washing up in the time it takes for someone else to find that tv programme and get it loaded and ready to go on iPlayer before we collapse in a heap and fall asleep before we’ve got through the ‘last time on’ section. What we really want and probably what the kids want is chocolate. Again. But we’re not  quite ready to give in completely. Even for those without children though there’s something about this time of year that has that ‘start from the beginning’ feel to it. It’s almost like a second bash at new year. With that in mind I bring you a slightly healthier version of chocolate cake: the one fork, one bowl, 5 minute feelgood lunchbox muffins. These muffins enable you to create that ‘made with love’ moment for the lunchbox but without loading it with sugar and without loading yourself with washing up.

Raspberry Chocolate Puddle Crumble Flapjack

Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 22nd August 2016

The Great British Bake Off is back on our screens and this year’s crop of bakers are ready to do battle with flour and eggs. There’s a garden designer, a pastor, a PE teacher and an aerospace engineer. Who will rise (pun intended) to the top and who will sink like one of my Victoria sponges?

Use up your veggies

Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 16th May 2016

This week is National Vegetarian Week. Whether you’re veggie or not, the warmer weather of summer is both an ideal time to get more vegetables into your diet and also a bit of a nightmare for keeping vegetables fresh. Which vegetables end up in the tray-of-shame at the bottom of your fridge will vary from house to house. For us there’s often a slightly yellowing head of broccoli, passed over during the week for the more exotic red pepper or the easy to throw in frozen peas. The great thing about vegetables is that, unlike meat, if you use them when they are slightly ‘off peak’ you’re usually not at risk of killing anyone.

Valentine's recipe

Posted by Gill Bland Tuesday, 9th February 2016

Nothing says “I love you” more than a bread-based product the size of your face, right?

I wanted to steer clear of the normal  heart shaped cookies, pink cakes or ‘romantic dinner’ recipes you find around valentine’s day. Instead I have tried to come up with something that is equally useful for someone wanting to give a home-made gift as for someone with a family and wanting a bit of love-filled comfort food.
