And I'll follow you:

An Easter recipe made over Easter.

Apple Simnel Tart

Take a sheet of ready-rolled puff pastry, and roll out a sheet of white marzipan to the same size (actually slightly smaller) Spread the top of the pastry with apricot jam, then place the marzipan on the pastry, and turn over the edges to form a square.

Decorate with slices of Pink Lady apples in a random fashion.

Cook in a moderate oven, about 200 degrees C for approx 15 mins.

Meanwhile, make a glaze using apricot jam, caster sugar, and calvados or brandy to taste. Didn't have either of those so I used pear cider, which was fine for this.

Take the tart out of the oven, and cover it in the glaze. Put back in the oven for about 5 mins or so.


The final result was a bit sweet for me (and I have a sweet tooth) Perhaps less marzipan next time?

I've never tried photographing food before so this will all be new for me and I hope to learn a lot :). I'll try posting everyday until the middle of the month when I move (was supposed to have happened last month but got delayed grrrr). I'll still take photo's then, even if it's just fast food, and try to catch up once I'm back online.

I really like to cook, and a lot of time I'll be in the mood for something but not have all the ingredients. Sometimes I'll just be missing something I can make and that is what happened this time. I wanted Chicken noodle soup, but had no noodles so I went in search of an egg noodle recipe (google is my friend!). I think I did pretty good making them, although next time I'll try to roll out my dough just a little bit thinner.

No need to comment on all, just pick one.

I decided on making a ham and bean soup with honey cornbread mini-muffins.
Southern Comfort Food.

I got the recipe for the muffins on allrecipe.com (my favorite recipe site) Im not real fond of how they turned out. I'm used to a sweeter cornbread.

Ok, I know that this is probably a little much (and I didn't take the pictures, I'm in them). But this is my Mom teaching me how to decorate a cake! My Mom is almost 70 yrs old and has stage 4 colon cancer, and I'm 50; in the 30 or so yrs that my mom has been decorating cakes this is the first time she has ever shown me anything about cake decorating. This was a fun time for both of us! No need to comment, just thought I'd share these fun photos!
