The Onions RIP

I did bad, I killed the onions! I’m an onion murderer! Apparently, onions only like onion neighbours and if a weed moves into their neighbourhood they die. They could make friends, they could share sugar and invite each other out for lunch, but no. Onion sees his new neighbour, sees it’s not an onion, clutches […]

Having my cake & eating it, too — here’s how I do it

I didn’t get lemon drizzle, I got chocolate cake — a gooey one. Not the one pictured either, the cake was crumbs when I thought about this post. And I didn’t make it, I bought it. If I’d made it then it would’ve been a biscuit and I probably would’ve just eaten the frosting out of the […]

Too nice, in fact. I feared I might find […]

Home-made sausage rolls (cheat)

Scrumptious – and I can make them! Meet my home-made sausage rolls – cumberland & caramelised onion – and besides giving me awful heartburn, I love them! With a pint of Gaviscon by my side I can eat them all day long and never have my fill… They may be a little under-cooked in places, and a little over-cooked […]
