This week I have really enjoyed reading through all your entries for the Morphy Richards Innovators opportunity. I have sniggered at some of the kitchen disasters (sorry!), marvelled at the many gadgets you have stashed away in your kitchens and picked up a whole host of useful housework tips (personally, I’m not a huge fan of housework, but I’ll give them a go!).
So here are my top picks from the UK food blogging community for the past week. Lots more yummy inspiration for you to enjoy!
I’ve spotted some great dishes popping up on food blogs that will be perfect for the warmer weather that we have at the moment. First up is a delicious looking chorizo and squid salad from 41 Feasts and I am totally in awe of Nicola, who made her own chorizo!
Next, I came across a lovely looking homemade pizza from @ThePRGeek on Food, which Jemma made as an alternative to a traditional Sunday roast. I have to agree that homemade pizzas are definitely the best and pretty simple to make too.
This recipe for molten mint meringues from A little bit of heaven on a plate had me drooling on my keyboard! I love the gooey green interior that Susan got by using mint chocolate. I can’t wait to try these out!
I’m pleased to see that I’m not the only one who gets excited about leftovers! Graeme from A Scots Larder has a mouthwatering recipe for leftover veal stovies with greens to help you use up leftover veal.
I love rhubarb, it’s one of my all time favourites. So I was excited to discover this recipe for rhubarb sorbet and shortbread on All That I’m Eating. With some great flavour combinations, this looks like the perfect dish for sunny Spring weather.
When faced with toast and cereal on an endless loop, breakfasts can become a bit dull. But this yoghurt berry breakfast cake from Hannah at Home Baked is a brilliant alternative. I think if I make this for my children then they’ll never eat cereal or toast again! Definitely something we will be trying this weekend.
Speaking of breakfast, how does a bacon sandwich sound? Christina from Little Red Courgette has been taking part in the bacon sandwich challenge to discover whether ketchup or brown sauce is best on your sarnie. I’m a ketchup girl myself.
One of our favourite family desserts is a good trifle. Competitions at family gatherings can see many layers of sponge, fruit and custard towering up, competing to be the best. Carrie from In Search Of Exceedingly Good Baked Goods asked the question – should your trifle have jelly in it? I’m firmly in the yes camp, what do you think?
Hands up who has children to entertain over the Easter holidays? I love cooking and baking with the children and there are some great recipe ideas over on Mama Owl for sweets treats. Banana lollies and chocolate cupcakes all round this Easter!
And after all those sweet treats, I think this hearty Italian vegetable soup would go down very well. The photos of this soup on Vanilla Clouds and Lemon Drops are so inviting – a delicious end to this week’s round up.
See you next week – same time, same place.
