Has anyone come across this before – a roasted and salted corn snack? They look like popping corn, before its popped, but don’t break your teeth.
They are brittle and salty and pretty tasty – I’ve never heard or seen of them before but came across them in a deli in the Cotswolds.
I’ve spent the last hour cooking, which is a real treat. I have attempted to make chard and Brie mini muffins from Alice Hart’s Vegetarian book – hers look a lot more attractive, I shall have to imagine she had a fantastic food stylist making hers look beautiful, but they taste really nice.
Always good to find a meat-free savoury snack, these are pretty good. I’d like to try out some other different ingredient combinations within these tiny savoury muffins. Any suggestions?
I am on a big push to return to home baking. It feels like I’ve let too many other things get in the way, and although I love most of the other things that ‘get in the way’ during my week, I feel deeply unhappy when eating and cooking goes awry.
So over the weekend, despite the many other things I had to do, I made some blueberry muffins for our lunches at work this week. I returned to a website I used to use a lot for baking recipes – called Joy of Baking - for a blueberry muffin recipe.
It was a batter that I was unfamiliar with, although I don’t make muffins very often (if at all). But they were simple and quick to make. I used frozen blueberries that I’d bought and popped in the freezer when they were on offer.
They look and taste pretty good and are super moist inside. I’d like to try them with a sharper berry, perhaps a blackberry or raspberry, or wild winberries - the blueberries I had were from the supermarket, quite large and probably a bit too mild a flavour for a muffin.
Mine are also a little more ‘golden’ than the beautifully taken photograph on their website, but oh well!
Here’s the full Blueberry Muffin recipe.
The Wednesday Chef is one of those food blogs you just have to check back to every so often. It’s like a great magazine that you can dip into whenever you need something comforting to read or look at.
It’s written by Luisa, born in Berlin, once a New Yorker, and is a truly lovely blog to look through. She has also just written up a delicious sounding recipe that I first spied (like her) over at Food52: Tartine with Mustard Mayo and Mashed Avocado. Just the thought of it makes my mouth water.
You can see Luisa’s version of the scrumptious sounding snack here along with a recipe for Spicy Salmon Mash on Toast.
