It’s not just a man’s heart that food can find its way to. No, no, no. The best way to show your mum how much you love her? That’d be with something homemade, sweet and totally delicious. And perhaps washed down with a few glasses or prosecco whilst staring at a beautiful bunch of flowers… but you get the idea: cake first.
With a hearty base of penne pasta and packed with all kinds of raw and fiery veggies this is the kind of salad that’ll put hairs on your chest. The kind that’ll make you want to chop wood and grow a beard do other gender stereotypes I haven’t mentioned. You get the idea: this is a fiery dish that’s perfect for celebrating the arrival of warmer weather.
You may remember from my previous post that I’m in the process of reviewing a whole host of kitchen goodies by Panasonic. I can’t lie I’m enjoying this collaboration so much: every couple of months something exciting turns up at my door and I try to make it look at home in my kitchen. I say that, because the Panasonic range is seriously shiny and the appliances look ever so slightly out of place in my not-as-shiny kitchen… they look as though they were made to stand upon sparkling marble work tops!
This time of year is very exciting for us food bloggers: it’s time for us to shine! It’s no secret that beauty and fitness is ever so popular right now, so indulgent recipes don’t get quite as much attention as recipes for super-clean-organic-vegan-raw-gluten-free-paleo… *takes breath*
I got the idea for these when I was at a party on the weekend. After dinner, a big selection of cookies were brought out and whilst everyone else was diving in for the double choc chip cookies, I was eyeing up the oat & raisin ones. Obviously I love all cookies (duh) but I really like the rustic gnarly ones, the kind you could imagine a farmer’s wife whipping up!
