As it is my OH’s birthday today I decided to make a birthday cake for him yesterday.  Below is some pictures of my efforts:

“Jamie at Home” cookbook

Posted in Recipe tagged , , at 9:19 am by vicii

I treated myself last week to Jamie Oliver’s latest cookbook since they were selling it at half price in W H Smith – and I have been watching the series on TV with great interest, loving everything that he has made.  To be honest though, I haven’t really had chance to look through it since every time I sit down Izzy decides that she wants to be cuddled!  Obviously the cuddles come first… anyway, I was determined to cook something out of it, as I think it is such a waste when I buy a cookbook but then never cook anything from it.  I opted for the balsamic baked onions and potatoes with roast pork – a good choice, it tasted divine and went down a treat at home
