I’ve been meaning to share this for a long, long time. It is my prised recipe, one which was partially from my Mom but which I have adapted, and it is so, so good. Not too saucy, not too cheesy, but just perfect. It is the tastiest lasagna ever!
When I was growing up, my mom would make Split Pea Soup every winter. Now that I’m a student with low funds and a lack of time, she’s passed on the recipe to me and it is truly one of my favorite things to make. It is so tasty, takes so little effort, is very affordable to make, and is really good for you! A lot better than pizza, anyway.
I love a good Afternoon or Cream Tea.
Imagine: Sweet, creamy tea. A dainty sandwich. A light bite of cake. A fluffy scone with cream and jam.
Two years ago, when I was away at University and faced with hosting my own Thanksgiving dinner, I did a lot of research. What I came up with was a blend of three different recipes which, when combined, has blessed me with the juiciest, most tasty and tender turkey for three years in a row.
The season may be over, but I couldn’t leave it behind without sharing my family stuffing recipe!
The holidays may be over, but that doesn’t mean the pies need to be!
This is the final installment of my holiday pies, but it is such a classic. Creamy, so tasty, and easily enjoyed all year round, the pumpkin pie always loved.
If there is one pie that I can never wait until the Holiday season to make, it is the pecan pie.
Sure, the seasonal favourite pumpkin pie is lovely (look for that recipe next!) but, for me, nothing compares to the salty sweetness of the pecans. Their wonderful crunch combined with the thick custardy-ness of the filling is enough to make my mouth water.
It’s almost Christmas!
I’ve been celebrating the coming holidays since November 1st, because we start early in the UK – Bonfire Night generally includes fireworks and is on November 5th. Think of it like an early New Years.
Oh you British weather you, with your fake sunshine and sudden showers.
Winter is most definitely here in England. You know when it arrives because you suddenly need a new umbrella (I swear I just bought one), but the shops are all sold out of them. Parts of campus begin to resemble a large pond. Normal shoes are no longer an option – they must be waterproof and at least cover your ankles. Everyone begins to resemble multi-coloured penguins in their thick coats. The temptation to fill up with warm, thick food becomes difficult to resist.
