#lovemyfridge

 

 

It seems I have recipes all over the place at the moment, but I know this is one you’re going to enjoy.  I’ve joined Bosch in their #lovemyfridge campaign and shared with them my favourite leftover recipes.

BOSCH Chicken Honey Mustard Pie 178

Sunday roasts are a regular occurrence for my family, a trait I’ve inherited from my Mum (I still can’t do them as well as Mum can!)  Time being short during the week for hearty family meals I always try and plan to stretch that roast out into a meal for the week.  My recipe for Honey-Mustard Chicken Pie is a great weekend extender – using up leftovers, kept tasty and fresh in a great fridge!

Summer holidays is always bedlam in our house, but it does always mean the start of a new series of The Great British Bake Off – and that’s definitely a reason to be happy!

So, if last nights biscuit episode got you in the mood for something savoury then my Blue Cheese Bites might just tickle your fancy…

Cheese & Onion Pie

 

Cheese & Onion Pie 030

 

This has to be one of the very best things to come out of my kitchen – you may have to save me from a Cheese & Onion pie addiction!

I have a great friend, Dor who shared a Cheese & Onion pie with a great group of ladies recently and I have dreamt about it ever since, plus with Father’s Day approaching and knowing my Dad loves this pie as much as I do I knew I had to give it a go. Yes this is my Father’s Day present to my Dad, and no not just the recipe I have him a pie lined up ready to go!

Some of you may know Dor (Doreen Simpson) from her La Difference catering days but she has a new facebook page Dorlicious which I know you’ll love to so if you’re a facebooker please do go and give her a visit, her food and allotment shenanigans are just brilliant.

Now for the recipe for gorgeous short short crumbly pastry and a glorious cheese and onion filling.  No potato in my pie just unadulterated cheese and onion, just how I like them. Continue reading

Lemon & Poppy Seed Traybake

 

lemon poppyseed traybake 071

This year I’m supporting the Colossal Cake Sale  sponsored by Whitworths Sugar for Bake4Heroes.  We all know that cake sales are always hugely popular and are a great way of raising much needed funds for good causes.  When you’re baking for a cake sale it’s useful to choose your bakes to maximise volume (ie. £££’s) and minimise your time getting there, leaving you free to bake much more, hence sharing this recipe with you!

This Lemon and poppy seed traybake does exactly that – plenty of slices  and a thoroughly lovely crunchy drizzle on the top – no faffing around with a tricky frosting or decoration.

Find out more about the Colossal Cake Sale campaign here at Bake4Heroes.

Ingredients:

Cake

235g butter, softened

235g caster sugar

4 eggs, large

210g self raising flour

1 lemon, whole

2 tsp poppy seeds Continue reading
