Favourite posts this week


:: We love pancakes in this house. Plenty of inspiration (and probably too much sugar?) here.

:: These (stunning!) photos make me want to find a field and go running!

:: Making pie more beautiful – number 12 is my favourite.

:: From pie to tart, this one looks deeeelish. This one too! (and from a lovely blogger I met last weekend :))

:: Peaches and nectarines remind me of living in France, were we really there a year ago?

:: My sister-in-law has thousands of gooseberries in her garden. I’ve suggested making this curd.

:: For those of you (crazy people!) who can survive without breakfast. *warning: explicit recipe*

Wishing you a very happy weekend!



Apple Tart


We spent our Jubilee in Scotland visiting my Daddy, brothers and sister.

It was a lovely weekend and baby did ever so well in the car for 7+ hours each way! The good ol’ Scottish air helped him sleep well at night too :) Magic!

My Daddy loves good food and had saved a few recipes that he wanted me to make for him. We started with Raymond Blanc’s Apple Tart from his BBC show.

It turned out very well the first time (I made 2 in smaller tins than stated in the recipe) so we decided to make 4 more for the Jubilee party we went to with his neighbours.

The only change I made was to add vanilla bean paste to the custard filling. Delicious!

I also made a chicken, leek, mushroom pie. Recipe soon!

Hope you all had a lovely long weekend :)
