In the end not a lot of posts this past month. I suppose I was busy thinking about a special birthday and working on my latest pattern and then creating an ebook for all of my different flexy creations. I did start the month with something about the free flowers I was given and my… Read More Monthly Montage – August
The Flowers I went to Waitrose this morning to do a bit of shopping for things I need before my next delivery on the 13th. As I was packing my rucksack and about to leave, an assistant came up to me and asked if I would like some free flowers, so of course I said… Read More Free Flowers & Focaccia
In July, apart from my normal monthly Montage post, I had three posts about cooking, three posts about crobhet and two posts about my apple tree. Crochet first. I published my latest pattern for a thing that I call a Hexatetraflex. I had made the standard version and a slightly more ambitious version that gave… Read More Monthly Montage – July
For a long time now I have been wanting to make the recipe for Fougasse that came in my Magimix Food Processor recipe book. Just never quite found the right moment. But yesterday I decided that the time had come. Recipe is HERE and the picture is the one in my book but the 100g… Read More I Made some Fougasse
Just a quick post. In 2012 I shared my ‘healthy’ Spicy, Nutty, Banana Bread. recipe with you – https://rainbowjunkiecorner.wordpress.com/2012/07/22/spicy-nutty-banana-bread-recipe/ Then a year later I shared a variation with you – https://rainbowjunkiecorner.wordpress.com/2013/07/04/banana-bread-revisited/ That time I added molasses instead of honey and ground ginger instead of coriander. Well recently I realised that I had rather a lot of… Read More Another Banana Bread variation
The last day of the month and time for the Monthly Montage! This last month the blanket I have made for my granddaughter took centre stage. I shared details of the planning and the pattern plus a look at the final blanket with its edging. For a bit of variety I added a recipe for… Read More Monthly Montage – May
I don’t eat cakes and cookies very often, partly because I try to save the calories for essential nutrients and partly with an eye to my waistline. Though I have found lately that occasionally indulging in a piece of cake (kept in the freezer!) doesn’t seem to push my weight or waistline up. But today… Read More Cookie Craving
Still working on the blanket and not doing anything else except a couple of rounds of my yet to be finished socks. So rather then post nothing, I took a couple of photos of my lunch today. This time the pizza has fresh mushrooms and scraps of roast chicken; same plate though I notice! Whole… Read More More Pizza!
Today my six-week menu said that lunch was Pizza with either bacon or sardines! I had some bacon in the freezer so I decided to finish it up. My food processor can cope with enough dough for thee pizzas, so I made three bases. I cooked two of the bases for five minutes and will… Read More Pizza for Lunch
After all my other cooking I had a bit of marzipan left, so I looked for recipes and found one for German Bethmännchen. Not all the recipes were exactly the same and I didn’t have any whole almonds but I quickly cobbled together these. Don’t look perfect but, as a marzipan lover, they are an… Read More Christmas cooking P.S.
