    Easter chocolate (not just eggs)

    I thought I'd start an Easter chocolate thread... it's not just an eggs thread, though our's are egg shaped. Luckily they're not hidden in the garden because visibility isn't much this morning. Dense fog would make finding them hard... So we've been buying these eggs for a number of years now...

    Coronation Food

    Rather than continuing the Easter thread, I thought I'd start a new one. I doubt we'll be doing anything....we're going to be on holiday somewhere (probably northern Italy). Somehow we seem to always miss the big royal events.....usually by design thanks to the extra bank holidays they give us...

    Recipe Orange & white chocolate iced brownies

    I will admit I use Nigella Lawson's recipe for brownies here, but I tweaked it to my own preferences so it's not a complete copy. She does not add the orange zest, nor the white chocolate icing or chips. Ingredients for at least 24 slices: 375 grams soft unsalted butter 375 grams best-quality...

    Easter 2023

    Anyone planning on doing any Easter-themed cooking/eating/drinking this year, or observing any family/personal traditions? I’ve not thought much about it yet, but I’m sure we’ll do something with a ham, and if there’s ham, then there’ll be some au gratin/scalloped potatoes about as well...

    Recipe Baked Ham, with Mustard, Balsamic Reduction, Maple Syrup, Clove - and Peach Cider.

    I figure it is about time to post some of my own recipes. I am so NOT a sweet tooth, so I minimize the amounts of sugars I add to mains. Instead of brown sugar, I prefer the punch that maple syrup adds - besides I live in Maple Syrup country, and plan to tap a few trees next year. But there...

    Recipe Advocaat cake

    We always end up with a partial bottle of Advocaat left over after Christmas....which generally takes up valuable room in the fridge until it goes off and gets thrown away. So I decided to try to find a way to use it up this year and came across an Advocaat Easter cake (which is apparently...

    Restarting Easter Traditions - Egg Decoration Competition

    I was wondering if anyone was interested in a competition based around an old Easter Tradition of egg decoration? I'd put up a small prize (yet to be decided upon, but probably a small kitchen gadget or cookbook of your choosing) for the best decorated blown set of 4 eggs. (4 would allow for...

    Easter food

    What food do you eat at Easter? Here, roast lamb is traditional and of course hot cross buns. Easter eggs are popular with the kids - do you still eat Easter eggs? And do you have any special meals planned for Easter? Today I'm making some hot cross buns.

    Easter Eggs, Courtesy of Beet Juice

    I swear I didn't plan this. I made pickled beets not long ago, and I read somewhere that the juice could be used to pickle eggs. So, I removed the remaining beets to make room for hard boiled eggs, and I waited. Then, I forgot about them. I decided to take some out and see how the looked. I did...
