Ever fancied making cheese? I did...and here it is. More to follow soon, I'm sure.

Next time I'm making these homemade onion bhajis, I'll invite you all round so we can share out the calories.

"An antipasti plank you say? I've got a big piece of oak. How big do you want it?"

Preparing corn tortillas is a family affair, George is particularly good at shaping and pressing them, whilst I do the griddling. Ed is usually on chopping and beer opening detail.

A simple lunch of baked eggs...with a side order of pancetta and some crusty bread.

Oh, I almost forgot. Here is my vague nod towards Easter chocolatiness. Fresh popcorn, drizzled with melted white chocolate, sprinkled with ‘hundreds and thousands’, a pinch of salt and Cadbury’s mini eggs. Good for Easter weekend movie viewing. Happy Easter.

A self-imposed healthy eating plan over the last few months has put many foods out of our reach. Due to spending too much time watching Diners, Drive Ins and Dives we keep craving big dirty sandwiches like the ‘Reuben‘. Today we could stand it no longer so I tweeted the loaf and asked if they had baked any rye […]

Just a little ‘Something for the Weekend’. In the days before children, Ed used to often make something like this on a Friday night after work. Something to tide us over until dinner. The truth of the matter was, once we’d had this and a few beers, we rarely got round to bothering with dinner. […]

Surely not. It can’t be true that I never got around to writing about kale crisps. We’d better fix that. Right here, right now. Kale is the only edible thing valiantly flourishing away in the garden at the moment. I’m a bit of a fan of the stuff. Have you noticed? Ever since enjoying several […]

A food post? By me? Surely some mistake? It’s all true, I did indeed make the sausage rolls in the pictures. They were the product of a happy accident that grew out of the usual christmas fridge surplus, coupled with me having time on my hands. Add to that my closet weakness for savoury […]

Crispy Chicken get’s eaten in our house more regularly than anything else because it is a child friendly quick tea. I would feel bad about that if I bought it from the supermarket ready done. I don’t feel so guilty about this homemade version though because it’s low-fat and I can choose the quality of […]

The 2nd of a short series of mini, single photo posts about food that we eat regularly. Nothing fancy. Nothing complicated. Just everyday food that takes minutes to make and doesn’t need special equipment, scales or unusual ingredients. If I make jacket potatoes, I make an oven full. Not because we are greedy, oh no. […]

We’ve loved Gyoza, or pot sticker dumplings, since we first tried them. We make a regular trip to Wagamama’s or Yo Sushi! for a fix. After a visit to the chinese supermarket in Derby with Apryl of Meridian Ariel we finally had some dumpling wrappers so I set about making them myself. I was a […]

This is not so much a blog post as some photographs of a man made sandwich. Occasionally Ed manages to escape the office and come home for lunch. As he travels around the country to different construction sites for his job he doesn’t manage to do that too often so it’s a nice treat.

I think I may have to rename our blog. Balls we make? It’s getting out of hand, I realise. I have leftovers, I can’t bear to waste them. I turn them into something spherical, roll them in panko crumbs and fry them. It’s becoming a habit. But hey, I created dinner out of something that […]
