Feast your eyes 1
Above: Vanilla biscuits with cinnamon and brown sugar
Sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day to write this blog. What with trying to leave the house on time in the morning suitably attired, somehow bluffing my way through another day at the office talking into phones and writing stuff (I'm amazed I haven't been found out yet) and not offending anybody with inappropriate jokes - some days I find it astonishing that I can keep it together appearing as a responsible adult. And then I must cook! But I can't, I'm afraid, write as much as I'd like to about each and every recipe. So here are some photos instead - wouldn't it be nice if the computer screen had active Smell-o-vision?
Mexican breakfast - fried eggs, tomatoes with chipotle and guacamole:
Lemon and thyme cake with Greek yoghurt (Nigel Slater's recipe):
My husband N making pasta:
The result - Ottolenghi's goats' cheese ravioli:
Peach, raspberry and frangipane tart, adapted from a recipe by Thomasina Miers:
Hummingbird cake, from the Hummingbird Bakery cookbook:
I might do a few more posts like this, as feels pretty good to set my photos free!
