Friday food links – 25 Sept

A busy week this week, where I blurred the line between work and home a bit more than I wanted to. The meal planning went a bit better though, mostly making the most of leftovers and quick things to make when I got in. I mostly stuck to Jenny Rosenstrach’s strategy of doing something either the night before or in the morning to get a head start on dinner. Off to Food Blogger Connect today (Saturday), so more tales from that next week. 


  • Chocolate courgette cake (baked as a loaf cake) and Garden Cake from Bread, Cake, Doughnut, Pudding (made into cupcakes) – both for a MacMillan Coffee Morning at work.
  • Sourdough English muffins from Brillant Bread – converted the dough into a loaf as I ran out of time to griddle them!
  • Honey roasted carrots, tahini-yoghurt sauce from Plenty More

Without a recipe:

  • Pizza
  • Fish curry – frozen hake fillets plus Spice Tailor keralan curry sauce
  • Yet more courgette parmigiana
  • Steak with roasted veg
  • Sausage pasta
  • Takeaway curry
  • Rice pilaf

Not time for much reading this week!

I’m Louise, and I’m a compulsive baker, cookbook hoarder and a bit of a food geek. I learnt to cook at home, and later at Tante Marie’s cooking school in San Francisco. With a science degree and a background in IT analysis, I like to understand why a recipe works, not just how to do it. Why the rules are there and when they can be broken.
