...gardening and cooking go hand in hand, so I wonder if other member's would be interested in showing us your skills in the kitchen... be it, buns, cakes, breads, or even hot meals, like casseroles, sausage rolls.... whatever really..   I for one, would be very keen to see your creative skills in this field and any tips you can offer...

...these have just come out of my oven, lovely Granary rolls.... of course I cheat - bread machine does the dough, I finish by hand... I hope you feel that you would at least like to try one...

I am sure it is just a trick of the light that is making your rolls look blue on top Salino-or is it my computerThey look good otherwise

 Nectarine and raspberry cake followed by Wild blackberry and apple pie.

...Wow....delish... I shall have to make that nectarine and raspberry cake...

if you can spare the time for the recipe, and don't mind sharing, I'd very much like to have it...

16/04/2013 at 22:00

Delighted  It's pretty much the same as the peach and raspberry cake in a friend's blog, and she based hers on Dan Lepard's Stone Fruit Yoghurt cake, http://mainlybaking.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/peaches

16/04/2013 at 23:38

..thank you so much, I'm familiar with some of Dan Lepard's work, and have copied that recipe. I can't wait to try that out... I note on the blog about greasing foil but we can get non stick foil now so I shall use that... I wonder too if I can replace the semolina with polenta....

some lovely recipe's on that blog site, I'm saving it to my favourites as I've found a nice cherry cake to try too..

I use the cake tin liners from Lakeland instead of foil.  It's a brillant blog.  The writer is one of the regulars on the other Forum I'm a member of - if you're interested in cooking give it a look http://www.wildfood.info/index.php - I'm afraid the first few posts of new members have to go through moderation 'cos we had problems with a Troll, but after that Bob's your uncle, it's plain sailing and a very friendly bunch like on here   

I have a different name over there - see if you can spot me

This what I made yesterday while it was so wild and windy outdoors.

A fruit load with wholemeal flour and sunflower seeds.

 

I use the silcone tins from Lakeland.

How do you add photo's ????

17/04/2013 at 11:11

...I think it's actually quite complicated Katie, on this site, and not a little time consuming especially when things are running slow.  However, saying that, you get used to it...

when typing your post you will notice the icon bar above where you type.  3rd from the right is what looks like a green tree, or to me, a little green t.v. set on a stand

you click on that, this opens a box and you click on 'Select' to select a file to upload - presumably from 'your computer'...

you can then browse your pictures on your p.c. and double click on the one you want to upload.  When that file has transferred to the box, click on 'upload'.  It takes time, and you should get a box with a red 'x' in it when it's completed [that's what I get anyway].  Click 'save' and your photo should appear in your post...

I hope you followed that alright, I do find it a bit messy on this forum... but in it's favour, at least we don't have to use 'photobucket' if we don't want.... but if you do then click on upload 'from an external site'...

..a tricky one to answer, it'll take a bit of time I think...

but a very nice forum I must say, and I shall be looking in to see what I can find - thank you so much for letting me know.  I may register later on when I get more time.... but I like the enthusiasm and the recipe choices.  People seem to like Rachel Allen's - I like some of her baking, not all... I'm always interested to read what other's are doing in the kitchen...

..yes those Lakeland baking cases are very good, I used to use their liners a lot. Pity there isn't a shop near me now, and I don't buy enough from them for mail order...

 

...lovely fruit cake from Scotkat, especially one made with wholemeal, which I use a lot....... we could all do with a slice of that...

I wonder do any of you use supermarket own brand flour for baking?  I go for branded personally.  Not sure if I'm allowed to say but I will anyway, Allinson's or Marriage's flour I like best.  Waitrose do a good selection too... and I do prefer Canadian flour for bread...

I use imageshack to upload photos.

..nice looking cake Eddie, something for a special occasion perhaps...?

very pretty... very eatable...

17/04/2013 at 16:11

Thanks Salino, I made it for Easter and it was rather nice!

It was your instructions I used to upload the photo, I had often wondered how to do it

 Cardomom Short bread, slightly over-cooked as I got distracted. I think the carroway seed ones I made last week are the most impressive short bread I've ever made.

17/04/2013 at 16:51

Would like to share the recipe they look so good.
