Good morning! Wednesdays certainly come round quickly, don’t they?! We’re back for another selection of our favourite posts from the UK food blogging community from the past week. Once again, there were so many lovely posts to choose from, but here are 10 that we think you’ll enjoy…
It may be getting chilly outside but that doesn’t mean we need to banish the ice cream to the back of the freezer – especially when it is served with roasted glazed plums! This recipe from Cook Sister looks perfect for Autumn days and the piece of writing that accompanies it is beautiful.
Another great Autumn fruit is the good old apple, but what to do with them when they are in abundance? How about make some apple butter? I love the sound of this recipe from Lancashire food and it would make a lovely gift.
Every week there is at least one (ok, maybe more) recipe that I say I really must try, and this week it is these black pudding, pork and chutney sausage rolls from A Little Bit of Heaven on a Plate. I think this recipe sounds utterly amazing and it is going straight in at number 1 on my must make list!
Do you have a sweet tooth? If so, then this millionairess shortbread from Domestic Goddesque will be right up your street. Not only is it a rich, chocolatey, no-bake treat, but it also contains pink smarties so is perfect for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Next week children from all over the world will be cracking open the green face paint and getting out the ghoulish costumes. This week there have been some brilliant recipes and Halloween food ideas including these pumpkin and chocolate brownies from The Baking Explorer. I also smiled to myself when I saw these squirmy jelly worms on Turquoise Lemons as it is something we tried earlier on this year!
I couldn’t do an Autumn round up without including some soups – they feature on our meal plan several times a week at the moment. First up there is a good old leek and potato soup from Recipe Junkie. Sometimes you just can’t beat a good, classic, simple-to-make soup. Next, I found this yummy-looking Chinese chicken stir fry soup from The Purple Pumpkin – a brilliant idea for when you have all the ingredients for a stir fry but just don’t fancy it!
I don’t know about you, but my slow cooker is out almost permanently this time of year. I find it so convenient for batches of soup, stocks, stews and cooking gammon joints – but I’ve hardly ever used it for cooking sweet things. So I was excited to find a recipe over on Plus 2.4 for slow cooker bread and butter pudding – I think it’s about time I was more adventurous with the slow cooker as this looks amazing!
Lastly this week, I know it’s a bit early to mention the ‘C’ word but there are some things that do need to be made in good time, and one of those is your Christmas cake. Over on The Pink Whisk, Ruth takes you through, step by step, what you’ll need to make your perfect Christmas cake – so get your pinny on and get baking!
That’s all for this week. See you, same time, same place next week!
