What do you do when you've got a packet of sausages that need using but want something a little tastier than sausage and mash? Returning home yesterday I realised that we also had a tub of red lentils that were in desperate need of being used in something yummy and comforting. So I set to and pulled together a rich and, if I do say do myself, rather delicious casserole.
Having spent three weeks in Florida this Summer, it was obvious that food was going to play a big part of our holiday. Whether we were cooking in our villa, out to a restaurant or getting take out, the wealth of choice over in the States is kind of overwhelming.
My dad turned 70 recently and whilst I wanted to make him a lovely birthday cake, I also wanted to make sure that it was traditional and classic (just like my dad). I had some lemons and half a bag of sultanas leftover, so I thought a lemon and sultana cake would be perfect.
Back in January my little sister turned 16 years old (where has the time gone?). To mark the occasion, I decided to attempt some icing modelling and create a MAC inspired make-up cake.
I don't know about you, but there are some days where I find myself searching for something a little different for breakfast.
On Tuesday last week, my Mum, my sister and I went along to Chatsworth House for their House Style exhibit. Showcasing over five centuries of fashion, we got to see clothing, jewellery, art and much more which catapulted you back decades.
There is nothing I like more than visiting stately homes and enjoying the foods they have on offer. So, a recent visit to Chatsworth House was another perfect opportunity to try something new.
Something I have always wanted to do became possible. My mum and I were able to attend a cupcake decorating class at the famous Primrose Bakery, Covent Garden.
