Saturday Crafts

I’ve been so slack at updating, my blog WAS broken but it’s miraculously fixed itself tonight finally. I’ve also developed a mean sewing addiction which is soaking up any spare time I have !

Moroccan Chicken Pie

This is a mildly spicy flavoursome pie. Based lightly on B’stilla it is slightly time consuming but very much worth it for a lazy Sunday.

Banoffee Pie

Firstly, what the heck wordpress. When I say publish I don’t actually mean delete my entire post so I have to re-write it. But thanks. Its the thought that counts right??

This is actually a Nestle recipe I think… I have had it loose in my recipe drawer for ages and an excuse to make something came up (bible study) and i had all* of the ingredients for a change.. Recipe + 1 pic after the jump…

Actually thanks to a few random circumstances (WordPress 2.5 killing bits of my site, and the automatic upgrade killing even more I will leave you with a few pics until I post the recipe later this week.

*(Except cream, who keeps that lying around anyway)

Frangipane Pear Tart

Recently I baked this Frangipane Pear Tart to take to a bible study – I definately should have bought the tart tin with shorter sides and a removable bottom – as you can see I had to trim the top of the tart crust. Also, the crust in this got too brown for my liking, next time I will not pre-bake it for so long.
