I’m going to turn into a serious pie-eater if I see any more of these incredible pie pics… This weekend I’ll be making the Rabbit and Wild Mushroom Pie for sure

Humble pie: 10 recipes you’ll LOVE

Four ‘n Twenty black birds … These lovely pies have ‘winter’ written all over them. Going to have to cook my way through all ten!

Black Olive Foccacia Bread

Just returned from lovely Sri Lanka, and after nearly 2 weeks of (very deliciously fragrant) curries, rice and weird and wonderful vegetables, I find myself craving … BREAD! So here’s an easy, must-make recipe for Italian foccacia bread with black olives (as well as some pics of beautiful Sri Lankan produce).

Bran and date molasses muffins with toasted almonds

This is one of those recipes that has stood the test of time. The molasses is a new addition to the list of ingredients and adds subtle sweetness and stickiness.

Lemon Meringue Pie with ‘marshmallow’ topping

There’s nothing on earth like a good lemon meringue. And when the base of lemon custard has been baked and then topped with Italian meringue (that’s the soft, un-baked kind) it’s taken to new – heavenly – heights.

Baking Inspiration

Food stylist Sam Linsell is the blogger behind Drizzle and Dip. She LOVES to bake – unlike me – which is why I’ve decided to share some of her recipes. Not only are the recipes keepers, but her photographs provide excellent eye candy for those not brave enough to bake.
