About this Cook
I drink far too much tea and collect pretty glass jars.
My cooking tragedies
Still have yet to make the perfect brownies and shortbread.

Love the recipe! I found that I needed to keep the sponge in a deep dish and it should probably be a self-raising flour otherwise it turned a bit odd. I didn't leave the sponge overnight, but I put it in the freezer for 1/2 hour instead before carrying out the usual procedure.

Toads in the Hole I
I really liked this recipe, I added in some salt, pepper and a couple teaspoons of chopped parsley and it made the whole thing a lot tastier :) It was crispy on the outside, but a little clumpy on the inside for my taste. In future I'll use less liquid.

4H Banana Bread
This is the best banana bread recipe I have ever tried; it's easy to make, light and moist. The perfect combination! I did use 3/4 cup brown sugar (lightly packed) instead of caster sugar though. I baked half the mixture in muffin cases for 20 minutes and they turned out lovely.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
