A Festive Gingey Gift Guide

Yum
*ARCHIVE POST FROM 2014*  This is a bit late this year and its not like me to be so behind. I know many of you are probably super organised and already have your Christmas shopping done and dusted but due to big changes in my life of late, I've not even started mine! EEEEK! 

So... for those of you who are as disorganised as me, here are my top picks for foodie festive gifts this year. If nothing here tickles your fancy, why not take a peek back at my top picks of years gone by too?

Review: The Mountsorrel .. in... Mountsorrel

Yum
The Mountsorrel guesthouse in .. you guessed it.. Mountsorrel has always looked nice from the outside. Having lived in the village for the past 2 and 1/2 year, the place catches your eye especially in the summer when the front is alive with hundreds of hanging baskets full of colourful flowers. 

Recently they opened their restaurant to the public (previously it was only available for residents) and with head chef Nicola Albiniano in the kitchen, they should do very well. I've eaten Nicola's food at local places The Swan Inn and Pilings Lock and I knew the standard would be high. So last Tuesday with Mummy Bites in tow, I headed over there for dinner.

Gooey Baked Camembert

Yum
I think sometimes bloggers assume they should be posting complicated recipes with lots of ingredients and many stages but actually, we all need inspiration and so, sometimes the quick & easy recipes are just as important.

This is an old favourite of mine and something I hadn't eaten for ages. Having scoffed it again recently and realising just how much I love it, I just had to recreate it at home. And now I'm sharing these gooey cheese porn pictures with you. Perfect timing as we head into the cold and dark nights and Christmas approaches.

Chicken & Asparagus Pie with Coconut Milk

Yum
It's been a while since I've blogged and for one reason and another I've hardly been cooking of late. Cooking is is how I relax and so, having not been able to do it much recently, I've really missed it. This weekend my lovely friend Vicky came over for a night in front of the TV and I wanted to make something quick but interesting. Now that the weather is starting to turn, with the nights drawing in and some of us even starting to it the heating on, I felt like a pie was order.
