What This Week?

Christmas Special!

Ok, so I’m back to taking your suggestions….more fool me!

I am now at home in a significantly larger kitchen, complete with spangily, shiny equipment just waiting for my abuse!

So do your best…..

I want cake ideas, trifles, sponges, waffles topped with meringue whips and chocolate droppings…something along those lines!!

Test me! Go ahead!

What This Week? Ready Steady Cook Challenge!


So I am broke.

I blame this blog….as you can see I like to blame others for my shortcomings (Adrian!).

But honestly, spices and all that jazz are the bane of my wallet….and apparently you need all that stuff to give your food actual taste…more fool me for thinking food actually has integral taste…I’m learning!

So I addressed my peers today in the newsroom and told them that the blog would have to be put on hold for a week due to my ‘zero’ bank balance…Now I wouldn’t like to say that the room fell totally silent…but you could pretty much hear a pin drop….and a few sobs….

Then James the genius piped up- really living up to his new name I must say-

‘No. Wait Jess! This can’t happen! I can’t let you do that….there must be something we can do…’

…..cue moody, rising to inspirational music as he stares towards the window, fingers fondling beard….

‘By God I’ve got it! A ready steady cook style challenge! We’ll all donate an ingredient and you’ll have to make something edible from them all! Damn, I really am a genius…’

….Cue sexy music as he runs his fingers though his hair, flashes a smile and does a finger gun at the camera, a twinkle in his eye….

The room whooped and nodded in agreement….

And so, this week, it’s a student style, impoverished, likely to be truly horrific, probably will result in a week off uni, Ready Steady Cook challenge…..AGH!


What This Week? (Asian food)

Now I know I haven’t posted a response to the pasta dish just yet…and that because I’m not happy with the video, and am considering a better way to rate my meals…any ideas, let me know…

However, I do need to know what I’m going to make this week?

The theme this week is ASIAN….so shoot- Asian meals I can create…..thanks!


What This Week?

Ok, so week one….

This week I’m going to go with an open theme, seen as it’s the start…so literaly anything….just drop a comment with a suggestion of what to cook/bake/create and how you want to see the results…and my friends Lucy and Anna (and the unfortunate tasters of my delightful offerings) will decide on the menu for their sunday afternoon.
