Blog recommendation; the Botanical Baker

Urvashi is a mum of two and a keen baker. After appearing on the BBC’s “The Great British Bake off” last year she has turned her hand to blogging. Her latest blog is a competition for other bloggers to create the perfect summer drink. Some are non alcoholic and are well worth a look. My favourite is pictured below; Rhubarb and Ginger Zinger from www.farmersgirl.blogspot.co.uk.

But if you want some lovely recipes and some glorious treats, this is also a good blog to follow.

Recommended Podcast; Spilled MIlk – Spinach

I have been obsessed with a podcast from America called Spilled Milk for over a year now. Molly and Matthew who host Spilled milk are charming, knowledgeable, and most of all very entertaining. The review packet food, look at ingredients, and recently have talked about their favourite essential utensils for the kitchen. Many of the podcasts they do are about packet food that they have a nostalgic feeling about, but the true gems are when “they cook something delicious and you can’t have any!” One of the recent gems has been about Spinach, and I would definitely recommend it for giggle values alone.

The podcast is available both on iTunes and www.spilledmilkpodcast.com/

Both presenters have there own blogs which are also with checking out.

Matthew Amster-Burton – his blog Roots and Grubs; www.rootsandgrubs.com/

And his book “Hungry Monkeys” , which is about his mission to raise his children as adventurous eaters.

Molly Wizenburg – her critically acclaimed blog Orangette – www.orangette.blogspot.co.uk

And her book  “A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table”

Eat and Relish; the best darn cauliflower ever


Today I would like to recommend someone else’s blog. I have made this particular recipe as a side dish to a pork chop, but it would also go well with a curry. It is a simple cauliflower recipe which was quick, easy and tasty.  This blogger is a vegetarian, and if you are anything like me, then any new ideas when it comes to getting more veg into your diet will be welcomed. Cory is a great cook and photographer based in Boulder, Colorado. I hope you enjoy the blog and the recipes as much as I did.
