We’re well into December now and I’m happy to say, the festive season is upon us. If you’re hosting, I have the most delicious mushroom & chestnut vegetarian sausage rolls to help your party go with a swing. Or if you’re invited out and need a dish to take along, these will do the job perfectly.
This recipe for spicy peanut butter noodles with steamed vegetables and smoked tofu is quite a feast and one the whole family will enjoy. Just be careful about the amount of chilli added for those who are sensitive to it. It’s a very quick meal to put together, although a bit of juggling is needed to get everything ready at the same time.
Apples have to be the best autumn treasure. They are versatile, delicious and can keep well. This year, they are also abundant. If you have more apples than you know what to do with, or even if you don’t, I urge you to make a batch of this spiced apple chutney.
CT recently returned from a trip to York. Whilst there he popped into Bettys Tea Rooms for a cuppa and a curd tart. Fat rascals are a classic Yorkshire bake and one that I very much associate with Bettys. I’ve never actually tried one, so in order not to feel left out, I decided to have a go at making some.
When I was challenged recently to meal plan for £2 a day per person to include breakfast, lunch & dinner, my mind immediately sprang to pulses. They are not only delicious, but are also relatively cheap, especially if you use dried ones rather than tinned. Find out about the challenge below along with my recipe for green split pea curry – a British take on an Indian classic.
It’s been a few years since I did any sort of retrospective on the blog, so before January runs out and the new year excuse has worn any thinner, I thought I’d give you the top 5 favourite T&T recipes of 2016 – according to you, that is.
Carrot cake is one of our nation’s favourite cakes, apparently. Who would have thought something as healthy as carrots would appeal to such an extent? As I was dreaming autumn thoughts the other day, I had a sudden urge to try making carrot cake in flapjack form. It worked beautifully and these carrot cake flapjacks are just the best.
Remarkable rhubarb cake may seem a bit of a lofty claim, but this bake is so easy to make and tastes so good that I made it twice in quick succession. It’s a great way to use rhubarb, which is in season right now and it’s delightful both eaten warm as a pudding or enjoyed for afternoon tea.
When I saw a recipe for banana ginger cake chez The Caked Crusader the other day, I knew there was nothing to be done but make it as soon as I could. Banana and ginger is not an obvious pairing by any means, but the cake just sounded so good – and it was.
Hello and Happy New Year. After a brief blogging break over the festive period, I am back and raring to go. But first, I thought I’d let you know what the most popular top ten 2015 recipes were on Tin and Thyme.
