Stuck on Repeat and Honey Jumbles

My current food status is a bit boring and stuck on repeat. With a toddler in the house I’ve found myself having to resort to very simple foods, mainly consisting of meat and 3 veg to get him with eating with us. I am just now getting to the stage where we can occasionally find…

Apple and Cinnamon Pancakes

Pancakes are the perfect Sunday treat in my mind, something to be lingered over leisurely with a cup of milky coffee and good conversation.  Their only downfall in my opinon is that they are best eaten straight from the pan which means someone cooking whilst the rest are eating.  Fortunately my kitchen area is open…

Rock Cakes

Anyone that is at least 25 years old and grew up in Australia will probably remember rock cakes.  The might sound scary but they’re actually quite a tasty biscuit filled with sultana’s and mixed peel, with a slightly crunchy shell and a softer inside.  Rock Cakes are a baked treat I remember having as a…

Getting Back to Sharing What We Love

As a food blogger it’s very easy to get caught up in the cycle of producing posts, trying to improve your stats and attempting to outdo yourself.  Then inevitably you start thinking about ways to monetize your passion and then it can all starts to feel like a lot of work.  Somewhere along the way…

Sharing The Food We Love Right Now

So often I share food with you all that has been created for special occasions, for treats or as an experiment. Whilst we love all kinds of food, sometimes I feel as if I’m veering from the true spirit of my blog, which is to share food that is easy to make on a regular basis,…

Traditional English Hot Cross Buns

I think I can say that the recipe I made for my hot cross buns last weekend is officially pretty traditional.  You see it was sourced from my new and very coveted book of English Bread and Yeast Cookery by Elizabeth David, published in 1977.  Not really an old publication I know (well maybe not so new…

Easter Recipes to Get Your Tastebuds Watering

Sharing The Food We Love has some delicious Easter recipes that I thought I would share with you again as some of them are almost as old as this blog is. Do you get a mountain of chocolate and you’re not sure what to do with it?  Make yourself some of this delicious Easter Egg Brownie…

Rustic Chicken Pie

I’ve been thinking about this pie for quite a long time.  I love a good chicken pie, but have not really considered how I would go about making one until we made pulled pork the other day in the slow cooker.  I know I couldn’t have been googling my heart out and had an answer a…

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork with Balsamic, Honey and Allspice

   I’ll admit to being very curious about pulled pork before I tried making it.  I wondered what the fuss was all about seeing it splashed across so many blogs.  Whilst I’d tasted it a couple of times from cafés I thought this week I would enter the fray and try my hand at making…

What’s happened in our kitchen this week?

We’ve been a little bit busy unwinding from a crazy celebration season so things have been a bit low key in the kitchen this past week.  This is a bit of a rundown of whats been happening for you to check out… Monday was a very special person’s birthday and in honor of the occasion…

Creamy Tofu Mayonnaise

Okay, so I was more curious about this one than anything which is what prompted me to try it.  I wasn’t sure that I would like it, but if it is healthier than eating normal mayo then really it couldn’t be a bad thing.  The end result?  Not bad actually, it’s light and not oily…

Lime Marmalade Cake

Some of you might remember just over 12 months ago I found myself with a massive stash of limes, and consequently a huge batch of lime marmalade on my hands.   The good news is that the stocks are starting to dwindle, but there is still a few jars lurking in the back of the pantry. …
