Oranges for easy Morrocan Orange Cake
I love this cake, despite not having a sweet tooth! It's dense and flavoursome and goes way too well with a cup of tea and a good book on the side!
Blueberries for Brioche French Toast with Blueberry compote
This makes a breakfast to die for - try it!
I LOVE eggs! Scrambled, fried, omelettes, souffles - you make it and I'll eat it! These Welsh Rarebit Muffins hit the spot and combine one of my other favourite foods - Cheese!Sage! Wrap it around sausages and bake; use it in stews; fry in a pan for crisps or make this Roasted Butternut Squash and Sage Risotto with Pinenuts. Risotto is always my standby food whether it be for a family supper or a speedy supper for friends, you can't go wrong with this. The sage adds a smoky depth to the dish that can't be replicated by any other herb.
Sprouts! Now, I'll admit to even surprising myself with this one. They're a bit like Marmite, you love them or hate them but I've come to rather love them. Not boiled to death til they're soggy and taste of sweaty socks; but gently steamed, then sauted in garlic oil with some pancetta and a spritz of lemon juice right at the end; or thinly sliced and mixed with bacon, double cream and parmesan to make this Sprout Gratin. Try it with grilled meats, it's absolutely delicious.
