Semi-Dried Tomatoes

Summer is slowly returning to whatever cave it crawled out of and is leaving human kind (or perhaps just me) mildly depressed. But apart from that, I’ve just had the first day of doing-nothing in about umpteen years, resulting in a creative outburst in the kitchen. Liquorice toffee, pickled cucumbers and slow-roasted tomatoes ahoy!

The Yoghurt of Champions

Bored with my usual porridge and enamoured with making my own semi-dried tomatoes I recently walked down the vegetable aisle at the supermarket unaware that in a matter of moments I would have an epiphany. One that would change, if not my life, then my breakfast menu for ever.

Ulysses Cocktail

While I may not be much of a mixologist myself, I do enjoy a good cocktail when I get one. Even so much so that having a cocktail by proxy can make me kind of tipsy.

Blueberry Everything, part II: American Pancakes & Spiked Jam

 

 

Fifty-odd years after my last post I think it’s about bloody time I finish what I started in my blueberry post of yesteryear. Because that certainly wasn’t all. On the next day, still at the summerhouse in Småland, Sweden, we couldn’t help it. We just had to go out for at liiittle more picking. And again, the bug caught us and we picked at the speed of lightening (or Superman or whatever you can relate to that is really really fast). So before we knew it, there were about 750 grams of tiny delicious berries in our bowl. And this is what I did to them:
