As it’s Christmas, I thought you’d might like to see last years magnificent festive display put on by the bloke who lives opposite my sister. Turn up the volume …it’s all about the music and startled animals.

Review: Interflora Merry Christmas Tray

December 18th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Now we had no idea Interflora sold anything other than flora, so when they got in touch and asked if we’d like try one of their Christmas hampers we thought we owed it to you, dear reader, to say ‘Yes please’. Two days later we were sent the ‘Merry Christmas Tray‘ which we greedily hurried […]

Marshmallow

December 14th, 2009 · No Comments

It was Hallowe’en and amid the regular, numerous, and it seems to me slightly gratuitous pictures of sad-eyed children with hare lips, the Guardian magazine had this Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall recipe for marshmallow. Perhaps naively, I had no idea Marshmallows were a simple man-made concoction of sugar and gelatine – I assumed they grew on trees […]

Parkin

December 14th, 2009 · No Comments

Residents only. Another HF-W recipe from the Guardian magazine. His ability to tap into the Blogger-D taste-psyche is uncanny.

Carrot, Parsnip & Horseradish Gratin

December 14th, 2009 · No Comments

What better way to round off a sunday in which not only have you built the worlds most magnificent shelving ‘solution’ from scratch (and wood) but also found the time to watch a (double) episode from the forth (and darkest) season of BSG than by sitting down with your (lovely) co-blogger and eating this hearty, […]

Black Hallowe’en Ravioli

December 11th, 2009 · No Comments

The recent purchase of a £25 bargain pasta maker* has led to a spate of fresh pasta making here at Yumblog Towers. Whether this enthusiasm lasts or whether this gadget ends up in the back of the cupboard along with the onion goggles, Waring Professional Martini Maker, OXO Good Grips® Strawberry Huller, Cuisinart® Soup Maker, […]

Cleanse & Tone

December 11th, 2009 · No Comments

I don’t know about you, but I think all this talk of Gordon Ramsay having a facelift is utter nonsense… his lovely new complexion is just down to sympathetic lighting and a good daily skin care regime.

Tuna Delights (for cats)

December 10th, 2009 · No Comments

Here’s a great idea – why not get up early on Saturday morning and spend an hour baking for a cat? After all it has to be a rewarding experience, our feline colleagues are renowned for their un-fussy attitude to food and the appreciative way they savour every meal lovingly placed before them. What could […]

Yumie Magazine – issue 5

December 9th, 2009 · No Comments

Hi guys. The new issue of Yumie Magazine trudges wearily over the well-trod ground of the US of A! We’ve asked around the office, spent the morning on Google and flicked through a 20 year old edition of ‘Floyd’s American Pie’ to cobble together this lazy cliché-ridden feast of Americana. Some of these recipes have […]

Cheese & Beer Bread

December 6th, 2009 · No Comments

This is a recipe from the Hairy Bakers/Bikers. It’s meant to contain brown ale but we didn’t have any so instead I used an alcohol-free driving Cobra which was gathering dust in the fridge. Let’s be honest, it was never going to get drunk.

Potted Mackerel

December 3rd, 2009 · No Comments

Take one Guardian Weekend magazine and one quandary about what to feed Archaeologist T. Realise that multiple small dishes that can be dipped into at a fixed pace are just the thing. Go to the market and buy fish. The market being a fish stall on Roman Road just round the corner, these fish were […]

Potted Cheese

December 2nd, 2009 · No Comments

As with the mackerel, so with the cheese. It was in the same Fearnley-Whittingstall spread* as the potted mackerel and required cheese, butter and a splash of vin rouge or some vine-based glug, thereby having all the markings of a winner about it. The man himself suggested you play with the recipe and use whichever […]

December 1st, 2009 · No Comments

Rejoice, MasterChef is back! This time around it’s a mixed bag of ‘Professionals’ who have to cook for Gregg and friends and thankfully the format is little changed. Despite being an irregular at my local gym, Gregg “That’s a twist of a lemon and a chop of a chilli away from perfection, my friend” Wallace […]
