Open ravioli

Cooking has become a little trickier since we started our kitchen work. Although we do still have a functioning cooker and sink (for now), we have packed away most of our kitchen items and just have one or two of the most frequently used things still out. It has been strange just eating things out of the freezer and buying as we go along, because we’re usually quite organised when it comes to planning meals! And I don’t think I realised just how much time we spend (and enjoy) cooking until we couldn’t really do it as much! This is a recipe I found when I Googled ‘what can I make with 100g feta?’ to be able to use it up. It’s quick to make and is healthy too, which is just what we need at the moment! I must apologise for the slightly dodgy photo here – my lovely white pasta bowls have been packed up and the light was terrible. I promise yours will look better – and it does taste delicious!

The ultimate scones

After making my buttermilk cake, I had 125ml of buttermilk left over and I wasn’t sure what to do with it. I did a quick search and found this recipe on the BBC Good Food website, and I obviously had to try ‘the ultimate’ scones. They really are lovely and moist, and I shall probably adopt this as my new scone recipe. I added glacé cherries as an extra here and it worked really well. Needless to say, they didn’t last long!  Read More

Felt Christmas wreath

Christmas crafting is in full swing of many of us now, which means that I can’t actually share most of the things I’m working on with you at the moment! However, I was recently invited to take part in a competition to design a Christmas wreath as part of the Direct Blinds ‘Deck Your Doors’ campaign, and this I can share with you! I had been wondering about making a felt Christmas wreath anyway, so this was a great opportunity to get around to doing it.

Buttermilk cake

Our building work is in full swing now so there isn’t really much cooking or baking going on at the moment. The work only started on Wednesday, and I’m missing it already! So it’s a good job that I have been saving up a few foodie posts to use whilst it’s all happening. I made this delicious buttermilk cake a long time ago now – it’s really easy to make and is great for any occasion. I had never used buttermilk before making this, but it makes the cake really moist. Yum!  Read More
