What I’ve been making lately…





Recently we’ve had quite a few parties, so we’ve been making and baking a fair bit. Here’s a few of the tasty treats we’ve been making:

  • Peanut butter truffles: really simple – peanut butter, 70% chocolate, and dulce de lech.
  • Hazelnut Truffles: ditto above, except with hazelnut butter
  • Couscous salad with mint, orange and hazelnuts
  • Elder-flower and Lime Vodka: I made this a couple of years ago – a nice Summery tipple
  • Chive-flower vinegar: We’ve a flowering chive plant on our window-sill, and I found a nice simple way of using the flowers – hopefully it’ll go nicely on a salad.
  • Vanilla Gelato: We had a few eggs left from our trip up North, and some cream which needs used up, as well as some dulce de lech – so vanilla and caramel gelato!
  • (And Tim made Wholewheat Soda Bread with Stout – and very successful it was! Very tasty!)
