Cranberry and pear pies

I have been baking these pies every Christmas for the last 3 years. They are not mince pies, we are not very keen on mincemeat anyway. These are cranberry and pear pies and here is the recipe. It says makes 8 on the recipe but I use mini muffin tins and make 20-24 of them using the same amount of ingredients on the recipe and still have I have been baking these pies every Christmas for the last 3 years.

Mint truffles

I have been busy making the present for the office secret santa last night. I decided to make a box of chocolates for a lovely firend of mine in the office. First I started with making the box for the chocolate. I used a old mince pie box and cut it open, then wrapped it a fancy silver wrapping paper then stick it together again to the box shape it was. But kept the top open to be the lid. I made my giant mint truffles from the Dan Lepard recipe that was on Guardian couple of weeks ago.Here is the link for the recipe. Then all I had to do was put the truffles in the pack and then wrap it nicely :) All done. I think I will be making a couple of more boxes this week. I will try with orang

Lamb curry

We are having lamb curry tonight. Thanks to the Japanese shop that I came across on the way from work to home we discovered S&B golden curry sauce. I am all for making my own curry sauce from scratch but this is really easy and very tasty for a quick midweek supper. I just follow the instructions on the pack and it always turn out to be very good. I have tried it with chicken and lamb.

PULLED BRISKET CHILLI

We had Jamie Oliver's brisket recipe tonight. It was very good, I have replaced the oregano with rosemary as we didn't have any oregano left and forgot to add the vinegar but it was still lovely :)And yes I cooked it last night for almost 5 hours in the pressure cooker for it to be nice and soft.No photo of it unfortunately as my phone died when it was ready.

Simit

Yesterday I had this lovely "simit" for breakfast. My simit is a bit softer version of the traditional "simit" as I make the dough with milk and butter. Here is the recipe; Ingredients; 200ml whole milk 100ml cold water 2 teaspoon fast-action yeast 75g unsalted butter 625 gr strong white flour (I have swapped 100 grams of this to wholemeal flour) 1 tablespoon honey 1 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoon grape molasses 3 tablespoon sesame seeds Boil half of the milk, then mix with rest of the milk and the water in a bowl and beat in the yeast and leave to dissolve 5 minutes. Melt the butter. Add the flour, honey and salt to the yeast mix then pour in butter and using your hands work eve
