More Online Haunts for Foodies

September 22, 2009 Leave a comment

So much to do, so little time! I have several posts, half written, half in my head, all delicious, that I want to get up here (and will do… come back soon for apple crumble, lime cupcakes with really good frosting, and something savoury too!), but in the absence of time, thought I’d update my little links section today.

There are so many great food blogs out there, I’m trying to keep my list of links to those I visit the most, some of them daily, and, perhaps most importantly, those that make me want to preheat the oven and start weighing, chopping and salivating.

So, my latest additions, and do check them out, are, firstly The Kitchn, a vast repository of all things food – great recipes, the answers to questions you need to know, equipment reviews and more. This multi-contributor site is updated frequently, and I find myself drawn to it at least daily.

Next up is Mowielicious, with fantastic food, but, and perhaps the draw for me, the most amazing, beautiful photography, something I clearly need to get better at.  Plus, who could not like a site belonging to someone who lists baking, sunshine and everything pink as their favourite things.

Finally, for now, Jam and Clotted Cream. Firstly, I had to overcome my jealousy at anyone who lives in Cornwall. How lucky! But, some really great recipes, especially the desserts.

Enjoy! I’ll be back later with some food of my own!

Photo Update!

August 25, 2009 Leave a comment

As I’ve said somewhere else on the blog, I’m not anything approaching a photographer, however, I’ve added some snaps to some older posts that I’ve been meaning to upload for a while, namely, my scones, caramelised onions, and ginger fudge cakes with fudgy icing. Enjoy!

I also have photos on standby for some of the posts I intend to put up next, so come back soon for a slice of coconut cake, a spoonful of chocolate cheesecake pots, and frustrations with rocky road cheesecake…

Food Blogs Galore

August 24, 2009 1 comment

There are so many fantastic food blogs out there – I can only hope my fledgling site becomes as much of a resource of some of the greats. I’ve started adding a couple that I read to my blogroll, and intend to continue doing so, so keep checking back. Up first – Cupcake Bakeshop, and although the blog is now ‘closed’, there are some fantastic recipes here for the cupcake lover. Secondly, ‘The Pioneer Woman Cooks’ – great recipes, and amazing step-by-step photography. Enjoy!

Notes on Ingredients & Equipment

August 11, 2009 Leave a comment

I’ve added a new page on some of the ingredients & equipment I use – thought the information might be quite useful, for example what kind of oven I use so you can adjust recipes to suit yours. I’ll add to this as I think of further information that may be useful. Suggestions and questions welcome!

Welcome and about…

July 27, 2009 Leave a comment

Welcome to Home Cooking | Home Eating. This is my first post, and, although at this point I expect visitors will be unlikely, I thought I should at least post something to read on arrival. In lieu of having anything food related to write about immediately (or rather, having lots to splurge about and deciding to sit back and edit my thought process, so to speak), I feel the best introduction would be to paste from my ‘all about’ page! So here goes…

I love food. That’s to say, I love cooking, and even more than that, I love eating. I also love talking about food. A lot. Of course, I realise not everybody does, and even those who do might not neccessarily love listening to me wittering on about my latest shopping find or what I cooked at the weekend (and how delicious it was), and therefore I thought I’d write it down and share it with the world!

Don’t get me wrong, I have no pretensions about my status as a food writer, and maybe no one will ever visit my little blog! What’s exciting for me is another medium through which to talk about food, whether the audience is just a few people landing on a random blog from a late-night bored googling session or other people who share my passion for eating well.

So, my intention, at least for the moment, is to share what I cook, and also what I eat, which I guess means the blog will be as much about what I buy as what I cook. After all, one of the best parts of cooking (of which there are several, which vary in position on my list of ‘best-ness’ depending on mood and hunger) is shopping.

If you do find your way here, I hope you enjoy my ramblings.  Please feel free to leave feedback, and even better feel free to share the recipes and the food you love.

So there we go. Perhaps if you are one of my first visitors, if what I’ve written above speaks to you, you may wish to bookmark Home Cooking | Home Eating and check back soon, for some actual food related entries. I can’t imagine it will be too long before my need to share gets the best of me.
