Here is my drawing of the American dish Eggs Benedict, consisting of a half of English muffin topped with ham, poached egg and hollandaise.

I got an ice cream maker earlier this month; A Magimix De Glacier, with a 1.1 litre freezer bowl. So far Ive made two ice creams with it. The first was made with coconut milk, and it was not as such ice cream… but a slab of ice… So this time we decided we’d make try and get a better consistency and texture, using yoghurt! Following a recipe that came in the box with my ice cream maker, we made a Raspberry and Yoghurt Ice Cream (Surely that’s a frozen yoghurt? ) . Anyway, sweet, but taut, and actually looking and tasting very ice cream like, I was pretty pleased with it Here’s the recipe:
100g Caster Sugar
3ooml Yoghurt (We used St. Helen’s Goats Yoghurt, which has a thick and creamy texture; maybe this helped with the texture of the ice cream)
We served it with chopped hazelnuts and chocolate chips. You could just as easily add these to the actual ice cream; just churn the ice cream for 10 minutes, add the chocolate chips/chopped hazelnuts, and churn for another 1o minutes.

- I am thinking about buying an Ice cream maker soon, and I’d really like some advice on which one would be a good one to buy. I’m looking for a cheap, but good-quality ice cream maker with a relatively small freezer dish. I’d love if you could give me some advice on which ice cream makers match my wants, or ice cream makers you’ve bought and have been very pleased with. Thank you!
- Now, since my post: Pancakes, Masterchef And Weird And Wonderful Foods, I’ve been doing much more cooking. I helped Dad prepare some spicy kale chips for dinner, I chopped the liver and the bacon for the Liver And Bacon stew yesterday, and I helped make some deeeeeelicious Chocolate Truffles coated in chocolate sauce, having the idea to coat some dates in the leftover sauce before pouring it away! I’ve helped at every opportunity, and have been noting down important notes in my Cooking Notes Book! And I’ve been having lots of fun! I’ve discovered recently just how much I love cooking! I’m really pleased!
Sorry I was a bit late with this post I’m sure you’re still celebrating Halloween though, right?
Maybe I’ll be on time with Christmas
And just note, none of these recipes are mine, so all credit goes to these brilliant blogs: Voracious Vander, Perennial Pastimes, A Home of Beth’s Own, Elephant Belly and Take a Bite Out Of Life. Please Check Out Their Sites!
1 Pumpkin and White Bean Patties With Rosemary:by Voracious Vander
I absolutely love patties, and I’m all too eager to give these pumpkin patties a try!!!
2 Pumpkin Brownies:
Now, surely you can’t beat pumpkin brownies!!! A delicious Halloween dessert!
3 Halloween Pumpkin Cheesecake:
Now, there was a strong debate in my head of whether brownie or cheesecake should be second,
because I love cheesecakes almost as much as I do brownies! And the web topping looks brilliant!
4 All Hallows Eve Vegan Pumpkin Curry:
Now, for another savoury dish. A delicious curry great for vegans and vegetarians!
If I was to make it, however, I’d defo add some chicken or lamb
5 Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls:
These look absolutely delicious, but I don’t think there is anyway I can adapt this recipe to be Gluten Free.
For people looking for Gluten Free Recipes like me, here is a recipe for Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffins!
- 200g chopped, dried dates
- 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 200g goats’ butter
- 200g light soft brown sugar
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 300g oats (soaked oats are better for digestion)
In the corner of the dark, dark pantry
Lies the jar. Glowing bright
In the shadows of the looming shelves
Sitting. So innocent. Calling.
Shooting waves of temptation
Pulsing, growing, as it tilts towards you.
Drones “Resistance is futile”
Oozing into your thoughts…
Oozing into your bowl
Peanut Satay; the pure streams of heaven
Flowing through the centre of a date
Soothing, it touches your hungry lips
Like fresh rain trickling onto a flower’s buds
As you close your eyes you seem to float
Like a cloud… drifting through the pure streams of heaven.
