As the name suggests this is a scrambled egg dish loaded with lots of good thing and it even has its own toast element. I hope if you are celebrating #Pride this weekend that you have a blast. Although the celebrations may be a little different I thoroughly hope you have the most fantastic time.

We really do love in the age of sourdough, and sourdough is a fantastic bread. It, however, requires so much attention and care. It needs to be fed daily or if refrigerated every few days. I did for the longest time undertake this procedure and after a few months had a good sourdough starter going. Then tragedy struck whilst kneading one day I knocked the glass jar off the counter. That was the end of my sourdough making I am simply not ready to make that commitment again. Instead, I mostly make this classic white loaf which I feel is overlooked. Much like iceberg lettuce I think the classic white loaf is seen as old fashioned and maybe not the thing to be doing, but I love it as I’m sure you will from the first to the last bite.
I hope you give this recipe a go and please leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts. Until next time take care and stay safe everyone.
I may be a little late with my banana bread recipe. During lockdown one everybody seemed to be making banana bread, and why not? For one it is a great way of using up bananas and two its delicious. There are very few foods I’m picky about eating, and bananas and avocados are two of them. I can’t stand eating a banana or avocado that has black spots, I do know they are perfectly fine, but I just can’t. So banana bread is just the way of using up those bananas. This particular recipe has a long time in the oven because I want it to get a deep coloured chewy crust. This is purposely cooked this way as it enhances the taste and texture.
This banana bread will keep for 3 days if stored in an air tight container or up to 1 week if stored in an air tight container in the refrigerator. To breathe fresh life in the banana bread pop it into the toaster and eat warm.
One for the chocolate lovers. This tart is very easy to make due to using oaty biscuits in the base rather than having to make pastry. I use a combo of chocolates a little dark and a little milk. I used to make it simply with dark, but some found it too rich. The milk brings a balance to the filling that everyone loves. Check out the recipe below.
These cookies are exactly what you probably imagine when you here the words s’more cookies. Chocolate cookies shells with a gooey marshmallow centre. They are incredibly good and kids will love them. Actually anyone with a sweet tooth will love them.
Hot cross buns are enriched buns studded with dried fruit and marked with a cross to represent the crucifixion of Christ. They are usually made and consumed at the end of Lent. I don’t restrain myself to Easter alone to enjoy these gorgeous buns. My recipe is an all inclusive recipe in that I know that a lot of people in particular children are not fond of the sultanas that are traditional in the buns. However, I do not completely stray from tradition instead I split the dough and to one half I add the tradtitonal sultanas and to the other half I add chocolate chips. The recipe produces twelve buns, giving you six of each. I must warn, that you will want, no need lots of good butter to go with.
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! Below is my family recipe for Irish stew a dish. Have a fun and safe day.
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
This year’s celebration will again be very different as here in Ireland it is the anniversary of Lockdown 1 and we are still in Lockdown. This year there will be a key ingredient in my Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations one that I love to both eat and drink that mighty pint of black stuff Guinness. It adds a herbily note with tones of molasses. In sweet items it gives a subtle almost ginger bread flavour and it is so good in beef stew in place of wine. I hope you all enjoy your Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations & stay safe.
