baking from scratch

Our household was deprived of cake and we all needed some quick! so i had a flick through the recipe book of great british bake off winner; Jo Wheatley and found a wonderful recipe of lime and coconut cake. its is squidgy, squadgy, stodgy and full of rich yummy goodness of fresh lime lime juice and zest and made from duck eggs from my ducks! you may nor be able to see in the photo, but the duck eggs make our cakes a very bright, rich yellow and make the cake go more delicious and stodgy. Some people prefer a light and fluffy cake, but i think that a bit of stodge brings out the flavour, and adds texture. It might just be the influence from my family, but we all do like a squidgy cake!!!

growing herbs

I have various herbs growing in my garden, it is absolutely brilliant knowing that we don't need to stock up because its right in our back garden! And as always, a meal always tastes better with homegrown produce! Knowing there are no pesticides or preservatives on them makes it so much easier.

developing an idea

i decided to expand on my flavour of bruchettas from last time and decided to do garlic pesto,(which i made myself) basil, aubergine and gruyere and then another flavour with homemade garlic pesto, basil, tomato and mozzarella. My family really loved them!

okay, i haven't blogged for a couple of days as the website wasn't working, but i thought i would blog a picky of my ducks. i have 3 females and one male. we get three eggs a day and make wonderful cooking, very rich!! they make brilliant cakes! the white ducks are called Englebert and Apple Dappy and the brown ones are called Twiggy and Hazel! (Twiggy is mine, the loudest of them all!) the colour of the eggs are white/brown and the others are green/blue!
