I’m not a fanatic for pumpkin spice. Don’t come for me with pitchforks and torches! I like pumpkin, although I cannot fathom why anyone would make pumpkin soup with sweet spices….I definitely prefer savoury soup. It isn’t that I don’t like pumpkin spice particularly, I love the components of it – I don’t actively hate

I ran across this recipe the other day while looking for alternatives to jambalaya. This wasn’t actually an alternative, but somehow I got here. So worth it. I admit, I changed it a bit. Evaporating the sauce made no sense to me, our house is all about sauce. I didn’t cook the rice in with

A few more years than I care to admit ago, I worked at a company that had offices in an office centre – they provide reception, mail services, janitorial….you rent the office, they provide pretty much everything else. In that building, there was a deli on the main floor, and pretty much every morning, my

Being a curious soul, I looked up harissa and this is what I found on IndiaTimes.com: Harissa is a spicy condiment, which hails from Tunisia in North Africa. This condiment is a traditional chilli paste made with roasted red peppers, dried chili peppers, and a blend of garlic, cumin, lemon, salt, and olive oil. There

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

I was watching Youtube or Tiktok, or something video wise the other day, and someone was making these doughnuts. They grabbed a handful of the dough with a wet hand, scooped a spoonful off with a wet spoon, flicked the dough ball into the hot oil to fry and carried on with the next. It

I was gifted a bag of frozen blueberries yesterday, and by last night, I had the fiercest craving for blueberry scones. I’ve only made scones once or twice, it just never occurs to me to make them and when I do, they are very much pastry and I’m somewhat heavy handed with the pastry. 🙁

Carrot Cake

I made carrot cake today! Actually, carrot cake minis and they turned out pretty well. I don’t bake cakes very well – I tend to over mix the batter & it generally comes out dry & dense. I mean, enough icing and it’s all good, but as the baker, I’m always a little disappointed by

My daughter introduced me to Pho a few years ago. What a revelation of flavours! Actually, quite difficult to describe – I think it must be tasted to be appreciated. Pho can be complicated or not. There are shortcuts that can be taken and, if it’s a choice between taking a shortcut or not having

Cinnamon Buns – with Applesauce

Tags: , , , , ,

I was on Tiktok…..it’s a vortex that drags me in….and I saw a video someone did where they got those tubes of cinnamon rolls from the grocery store and added a can of apple pie filling to them when they baked them. I never buy either of those things, but I was certain I could
