August’s BSFIC-meets-Random Recipes Round Up

For August’s Bloggers Scream For Ice Cream, I joined forces with my blog sibling Dom at Belleau Kitchen for a BSFIC-Random Recipes Mashup.

Suddenly alert, our ears strain to work out the direction of travel. Each time the music stops, we enviously envisage kids ... Read more »

June & July BSFIC: Herbs

Last year we did Spices, now it’s time for herbs! Defined (culinarily) as the leafy green parts of a plant, either fresh or dried, herbs are usually used in small amounts to provide flavour or seasoning. They are distinct from spices, which are most commonly a product of the seeds, berries, roots, bark, flowers and ... Read more »

April BSFIC: Baked Alaska

As a child of the seventies, I can’t help but love a bit of retro… and Baked Alaska is definitely one retro classic that deserves a more central place in the modern repertoire. Of course, Baked Alaska (also known as glace au four and Norwegian omelette) wasn’t invented in the 1970s! Wiki tells me the ... Read more »

BSFIC: A Year Of Themes (February & March)

To celebrate the milestone, I’m setting an unusual challenge this month. You can pick any theme ... Read more »
