Autumn really is a time of fruitfulness. In our garden we’ve got an old pear tree. According to Freddy’s uncle, it was planted when the house was built, aka 87 years ago. However old it is, at this time of year we are overcome with pears. For about two weeks we have more pears than we could ever want. At the same time, down the road, the orchard is groaning with discovery apples.
This coconut, parsnip and apple soup is flavourful and perfect for a light meal. It is oh so creamy, slightly sweet with a hint of spice from the curry powder and it is suitable for vegans.
I had a Halloween plan. A simple one really – aka make blood cookies and Dracula punch and blog about them. But I woke up in the morning, saw my pancake pan and thought I really, really, really just want to make pumpkin pancakes. So pumpkin pancakes you get.
This warming spiced apple granola recipe with cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla makes a great autumn breakfast, snack or even dessert.
These hazelnut apple muffins are just the right thing for busy autumn mornings.
There is just something about (crock pot) slow cooker apple oats. Do you know what I mean? The end result is just fluffier, creamer and somehow more moriesh than expected. So when I need a break from my other 3 breakfast loves AKA muffins, pancakes and rice and I automatically turn to slow cooker oats.
It’s Monday – which is the new Friday. Which means cocktails. This easy to make all round spiced apple gin cocktail is great for summer but warming spices also make it suitable for the colder months.
Plum season, handily tucked between strawberries in June and apples in September, is finally here. And one of our go to recipes is this almond, orange and plum cake which is just bursting with the flavours of summer.
Brussels sprouts. To slaw or not to slaw? OH was firmly in the not to slaw camp. Me – well I had to go and prove him wrong. So, I slawed. So here is the resulting caraway, apple and Brussels sprout slaw with a mango yoghurt dressing. See what you think..
This warming chicken stew has chicken cooked in spiced apple juice with apricots and almonds. It is lovely served with a lemony herby couscous.
