Notes about Recipes in this site

  • Chocolate biscuits

    • adewar on February 29, 2016

      Very clear instructions, held their shape well even with very detailed cutters and the flavour is great. We haven't worked out the best way to decorate them yet. I think melted white chocolate could work well.Easy enough for children to make.

  • Slow cooked beef cobbler

    • inss25 on October 20, 2015

      Really delicious. I added shallots & mushrooms to Ruth's basic stew recipe - and it really is a simple dish. The addition of the brown sauce just gives it a little something.

  • Rosie fairycakes with crystallised rose petals

    • wester on July 19, 2015

      I only made the crystallized rose petals. My daughter wanted rose petals on her birthday cake, so I searched EYB for a recipe, and this one was quite detailed. It is quite a lot of work, but definitely worth it, for special occasions. They did not all get crisp, but they were tasty and looked really good. One or two roses is plenty for decoration of a normal-size cake/pie/tart.
