Hyde Heath Afternoon & Evening Women’s Institutes, Selected Recipes, 1972

Want to know how to make Iced Tuna Mousse, Monday Risotto or Coffee Hedgehog? Need to know how to crisp up a limp lettuce using a lump of coal, or remove tar from your clothes/children after a day out at the seaside? Perhaps you need to convert fl.oz. to decilitres? Then look no further than […]

ChocChip™ Cookies

January 28th, 2012 · 1 Comment

Needing as we did to both satisfy a craving for something sweet and shift some particularly average Christmas chocolate balls from Lidl, these ChocChip™ Cookies perfectly fulfilled both requirements. Obviously you don’t need to rush to Lidl and rummage through the ‘end of line’ slop bucket in search of the last remaining net of stale […]

Sweetcorn fritters

January 27th, 2012 · 2 Comments

A while back we bought a bumper pack of frozen sweetcorn for Yumblog Junior hoping this might make a healthy addition to her somewhat restricted and monotonous diet. As is invariably the case she gave our offering a glance of contempt, shook her head and returned to her preferred menu of bananas, Marmite and toothpaste. […]

Dave’s Mam’s killer fishcakes (with cheese sauce)

January 24th, 2012 · 1 Comment

If any of you dodgy lot were to break into Yumblog Cottage, you would probably notice (apart from how bloody cold it is) that despite several shelf loads of cookbooks, there was virtually nothing ‘written’ by TV chefs. No matter how frantically you rummaged, you’d find no Jamie, Nigella, Gordon, Heston, Sophie, Ainsley, Gino, Levi, […]

Seed & grain white bread

January 23rd, 2012 · 3 Comments

Well I never, I’ve just discovered our local Morrisons now sells packets of fresh yeast for breadmaking… and at the very reasonable price of 50p for 126g. This was unexpected because a) as far as I know you can’t even get it at Waitrose, and b) Morrisons is very much at the (Sp)Asda end of […]

Gravalax the 3rd way – Beetroot

January 23rd, 2012 · No Comments

It’s taken a while to write up this, the third of our festive gravali because to be honest I got a little over excited at the fishmonger’s (Paul, Todmorden Market) where I bought the salmon and ended up with 1.5kg of the stuff. Delicious as it was (and this beetroot version was the tastiest of […]

Tartiflette* with Brie

January 9th, 2012 · No Comments

Although the fridge has now all but emptied of Christmas goodies the cheese compartment is still heavy with half-eaten lumps, wheels and wedges of every variety of soft, hard, blue, holey, mature and goat. It has become clear that the occasional lunchtime snack is never going to make much headway into this cheesey surplus and […]

Gravalax the 2nd way – Ginger spiced

January 9th, 2012 · No Comments

Obviously our enjoyment of Christmas was seriously curtailed by the devastating news of Prince Philip’s hospitalisation – thank God the BBC ran half-hourly news bulletins to keep us up to date with every nuance of this never-changing national cataclysm. Here at Yumblog Cottage we tried to keep our subjective peckers up by preparing and scoffing […]
