Warm Comfort Food What do we all yearn for on a very cold, freezing day – for me it’s Warm Comfort Food! Still in my dressing gown, I can hear the wind eerily whistling down the North East coast of Yorkshire. So far, snow has not appeared here for some reason, but in odd corners of […]
Join us in the trials and tribulations of our kitchen garden throughout the seasons
New Year, New Recipes – Part Three The expectation of very snowy conditions are hovering over Hornsea this morning, as I sit in my dressing gown in my chilly office (whoops – typed ‘chilli’ thinking about food again) at 6.50am, but just looking at these fun, gently spicy recipes for the New Year, New Recipes post is […]
More Christmas Recipes Christmas is fast approaching, and I’ve been trying to find more Christmas recipes to tempt our tastebuds. The first one is a slightly unusual but easy starter, Mulled Wine Pears with a Roquefort Dressing, which sounds spicy and warm, with the creamy richness of Roquefort cheese making this a very different starter.

Just sometimes, when I wake up very early and creep into my very cold tiny office, pitch black sky filtering through my voile curtain, I feel the urgent need for comfort food.

Apologies to all for not blogging since May this year.

Tales from Our Kitchen Garden The weather in East Yorkshire hasn’t been so bad – no hurricanes or floods or horrendous weather conditions like that – but it has been very wet, slightly frosty with little bits of sunshine. Yesterday (the day of the Tour de Yorkshire beginning), our weather decided to give us almost […]
It’s 5.45am, and I’m trying to decide what Bank Holiday Recipes to cook for a very soggy Bank Holiday – it’s a choice between Chicken Traybake, Flambeed Chicken with Asparagus or a Chunky Apple, Raisin, Walnut & Cider cake to keep us warm. Maybe make them all?
Nettle Recipes A few years ago, I would have never dreamed of writing about Nettles, and particularly Nettle Recipes! I hate being stung by those ferocious plants that litter my garden, and strike me with that sudden, instant pain that materialises into a dull, strong, nagging, itchy ache for hours and is no friend of […]
Belated Happy New Year 2016! OK. I know. I’m sorry. It’s April now, and I’m back. To blogging that is. I know it’s a long time since my fingers touched the blogging keys on my computer, but just wanted to wish all of you, wherever you are, a very Belated Happy New Year 2016. Our […]
