Up North - Known as a Bread Cake
The weather was not scorching, but it was ideal for a BBQ, I wanted to demonstrate my baking skills. I whipped the old Baking book out and looked at bread cakes. The bread is a sweet bread but goes down well with a Sweet Chilli burger.

Home Made Burgers
I love burgers however they taste much better, when you know what is going into them. I had a chat with my local butcher he said you should not really get much shrinkage when you grill your burgers (most of the time burgers are filled with rubbish). I said to him I'll put your theory to the test and see if that's true
|Meaty Burger with minimal fat, very lean beef.|
|Burgers left in fridge for 30 mins|
Please note I used my own little secret ingredients, only for your eyes.
The spicy wedges were McCains, I didn't have time to make them myself due to time constraints.

The Easter Cake in Summer
The original idea was to make this cake over Easter however my wife robbed my marzipan so I could not make the cake. So I trotted off to the shop and got some more marzipan some months later..
Seeing the golden balls from a different angle, I guess the perspective is still the same hmm.
There's always something nice about getting up close and personal with your cake. Can't quite put my finger on it, but the relationship between cake and camera is something special.
Those golden balls..!

Birthday Desert and Cake
I was out at the weekend celebrating my wifes birthday, we went to Browns for lunch, which was nice, they have a good service especially if you have children very fast. My wife had three different chocolate brownies on one plate with Ice Cream, it looked really nice too.
My wife received a nice birthday present at the weekend, a cake made just for her and it was made on the same day too, shame we couldn't stick my candles in it.
I really indulged a little over the weekend, never had so much desert in one day..!
The Pizza that hits the spot
After a hard night of dancing, there is nothing more apertizing than coming home to a nice homemade fresh pizza waiting to be cooked with a nice fresh base made with nice topping (salami, tomato, mozzarella, fresh basil and black pepper.
This is further backed up with garlic bread homemade of course too and a little Greek salad would not go amiss either, oh the two pale balls are dough balls, just in case you were wondering.
Don't forget your fresh cool Apple juice to wash it down with.
