Blackberry Cheesecake

Cheesecake… what could I possibly say about this wonderful, creamy dessert that I, or Gregg Wallace, haven’t already said? Indeed, there’s little point in me waxing lyrical about cheesecakes; I have indulged in such a thing many times before. However, I find it near impossible to forego any opportunity to discuss cheesecake. As such, I shall delve into the particulars of the very article you see before you… it was magnificent.

Pumpkin and Sage Bread

Hello, Frugalers! I have returned from a week long hiatus in Aylesbury, a large town home to both Katherine and a world famous breed of duck – there are no prizes for guessing its name. I must admit that the time spent away from work and blogging was rather welcome, though I did miss the latter considerably. Indeed, armed with the knowledge that on my return to Aberystwyth our new kitchen would not yet be installed, my girlfriend and I set about cooking all manner of treats so that I could continue to blog following my break. Fear not, faithful readers, cooking is also a favourite pastime of my wonderful woman – I was not putting the blog ahead of our relationship, I don’t think.

Roasted Celebration Squash, Sweet Potato and Spicy Sausage

Last week I bought a squash along with a couple of sweet potatoes with the intention of roasting them for dinner one day in mind. However, it seemed to me as though this alone couldn’t be counted as a complete plate of food. So, when I saw the picture of roasted squash and sausages sitting atop the recipes topic on WordPress, my mind was made up. This is such a quintessentially autumnal dish; the squash is certainly only available at this time of the year, while the sweet potato is more readily available. Not only this, but it is also incredibly satisfying to eat, with the heat provided by the sausages cutting across the sweetness of the squash and sweet potato.

Indian Minced Beef with a Fresh Tomato Salad

There are many things one can cook with a punnet of minced beef; it is perhaps one of the most versatile ingredients available. This, for instance, is a variation of a dish I used to eat a lot of at university, though since I’m a much better cook than I was 2-3 years ago it tastes slightly better. This recipe is taken from BBC GoodFood, though I used my own blend of spices and perhaps even my own initiative at times – do not be too shocked, WordPress.

Chocolate Chunk Blondies

Today I went on what was essentially a compulsory, yet fully paid, food hygiene course organised by my employer. Apparently it is a requirement as at the bar in which I work we prepare and serve toasted sandwiches. This course wasn’t exceptionally useful as it ended up being a course in how to make use of common sense – by which I mean that it was no harder than it was useful. Still, I suppose if it means I get more/continue to get shifts it was one of the more worthy uses of my time. Anyway, to cut a long story short, what does one do having completed a food hygiene course? Go home and bake blondies following very little of the imparted advice, that’s what.
