English Pork Pies





Having a day of cooking to remind me of home!

Nutella bread… kind of…

IMG_0104.JPGI used an enriched dough that I made from scratch. Brioche or Danish is good. Layered with Nutella, egg washed and sprinkled with Demerara sugar, cinnamon and sliced almonds. I think if I made it again, I would layer it with julienne of pears and marzipan, plus some chocolate. Was it good? No idea. Sent it to work for hubby to put in the break room. It was gone before ten so I guess so.

Drunken pear and frangipane tart

Getting back on the wagon. Food for thought and well being.

Fresh figs with Gorgonzola and pecans for lunch.
Bison burger with wilted spinach and onions for supper with raspberry and pineapple smoothie ( not shown) I gulped that one down!

Better than eating out!

Easter Bread

20140419-103220.jpgA gift from an associate. Brought back some really nice memories of Easter back home and the effort put into such occasions. Beautiful. Thank you Thomas Williams and your amazing girls!

Pork with cranberries, apples, blackberries and raspberry balsamic sauce!

Quick supper on a cold evening

We had pork chops last night that I made with some cranberry relish, added blackberries and raspberry balsamic  and reduced it to a glaze…pushed it through the sieve to make a smooth sauce…I had the tiniest piece of pork but the glaze over my veggies…mmm mm good! If you need something healthy and fast this is it!
