Cookbook Challenge: Week 50 Theme: Picnic Recipe: Jam Drops From: AWW Bake Disclosure: I was sent samples of Bonne Maman jam from 360° Focus. Oh dear, oh my. I’ve been a bad Cookbook Challenger again. This is the second week in a row that I haven’t prepared anything! I fully intended to make something today, [...]
I used to be okay with flying, but the older I get the more I dislike it. I’m not at the Valium stage yet, so I try and give myself things to look forward to in an attempt to distract myself – oooh movies! ooooh going somewhere different! ooooh plane food! Yes, I look forward [...]
Recipe: Mango Sorbet From: Food We Love I have a confession. I didn’t make anything for the Cookbook Challenge this week. Fortunately – just like a TV chef – here’s one I prepared earlier!

Hello! This is a very quick post from Dubai! Alastair and I have had a great time in the UK over the past couple of weeks and now we’re flying to Singapore for several days. I can’t wait to eat some Asian food, although we have been quite spoilt in the meals we’ve eaten while [...]
Recipe: Margarita From: Marie Claire Food & Drink The theme for the Cookbook Challenge this week is “cup” and I must admit that I have stretched the theme a bit. My thinking went like this: Cup = glass = drink = cocktail = MARGARITAS!
