Did I mention I spent a few days in Mexico, learning about traditional Pueblan cuisine? No? It was glorious, as you might guess, and I am now going to proceed to rub it in just that little bit more by showing all the yummy things I made and ate and the beautiful place I stayed. If you are interested, the course was run by the lovely Jon and Estela of Mexican Home Cooking.
My goodness, it has been a while since I’ve posted anything tasty! It’s not that I haven’t been eating, but being in a different country has changed my cooking habits somewhat. Either way, this is pretty tasty: pasta with artichokes, spinach and pesto.
When I was at school I had the opportunity to bake bread just about every week on Thursday morning, something I took as advantage of a lot over the 5 years I was there. Flash forward 3 years and I am still baking bread, but not on quite such regular basis. I did however spend this evening passing the skill on to a friend, only realising later that I had picked the correct day of the week. Oh, and here’s what I was wearing xx
Socks: Urban Outfitters
Tights: TK Maxx
I needed something really easy for dinner a couple of nights ago – the sort of thing you could throw together and leave to do its own thing – and this is the end result. Enough for four, with leftovers.
I’ve been craving a really good coffee and walnut cake for a while, but all the recipes I see don’t seem to taste very much like coffee and come with that horrible, over-sweet butter-cream icing. Not my idea of tasty. So, armed with a large pot of coffee, I went to work on my own version, which went down equally well at teatime as for dessert. I used the Leiths recipe to make the actual cake, so use whichever recipe you would usually.
Sorry, no photo. But you all know what chilli con carne looks like anyway, right? This is however, a pretty epic version thereof, even if I say so myself xx
