Well we all love a good rant or moan, about the shitty weather, even the price of food, or just about life in general.
Its that time of year again, when all us cooks have to make the christmas pudding/cake, so that its ready for the christmas table, it is best to make these a couple of months in advance so it can mature properly, but who said you can't have a bit of fun and a good laugh while making these, so here is an alternative method in making christmas pudding/cake, hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I have!!!
Once again this year, I’ve had requests for my Vodka Christmas Cake recipe so here goes. Please keep in your files as I am beginning to get tired of typing this up every year! (Made mine this past weekend!!!!)
Let me just say that the party involved has asked to remain anonymous. I will honour that request.
Paging through this site you will notice there is no love lost between myself and
Found out yesterday all these have combined to all but finish my local hostelry.
One is made of fruit. The other is caffeinated. So a smoothie is a healthier option than a coffee, right? Don't be so sure, says Michael Mosley, as he weighs the evidence.
Which is healthier - coffee or smoothies?
It seems obvious that the answer must be a smoothie. After all, drinking coffee is a necessary evil while having a smoothie, made from fruit, is part of your five-a-day. But when you look into the scientific studies they reveal something much more surprising. Let's start with coffee.
There have been numerous claims down the years that drinking coffee will increase your risk of a whole range of terrible things from heart disease to cancer.
Halloumi or hallumi : (Greek: χαλούμι or χαλλούμι; Turkish: hellim; Arabic: حلوم ḥallūm) is a Cypriot semi-hard, un-ripened brined cheese made from a mixture of goat's and sheep's milk, and sometimes also cow's milk. It has a high melting point and so can easily be fried or grilled. Halloumi is set with rennet and is unusual in that no acid or acid-producing bacterium is used in its preparation.
Halloumi is popular in Cyprus, Greece and the Levant.
Halloumi cheese originated in Cyprus and was initially made during the Medieval Byzantine period (AD 395 – 1191), subsequently gaining popularity throughout the Middle East region.
Wolves lived in Scotland for thousands of years until heightened hunting eventually drove them into extinction.
The wolf traditionally cited as the last in all of Scotland, is said to have been killed on the upper reaches of the River Findhorn in the year 1743. According to this story a "black beast", thought to be a wolf, had attacked a woman and two children as they crossed the hills from Calder. So the Laird of Maclntosh arranged a "Tainchel" or gathering, to which all the hunters in the district were summoned, to attempt to drive the wolf from hiding and kill it. A well-known hunter of great reknown named MacQueen was ordered to attend, with his hunting dogs. MacQueen asked questions about the place of the alleged attack and sightings of the wolf, and promised to join the hunt.
On the day chosen Maclntosh and all the hunting men of the district gathered promptly - except for MacQueen, who was conspicuous by his absence. Time passed, and the Laird's temper grew short. At last MacQueen made a casual entrance with his dogs at heel, to be scolded immediately for his lateness by the angry Laird of Maclntosh.
Well yesterday (14th May 2015) started out like any other normal day, got up fed the dogs, did all my housework, you know normal things when you have a day of work, got it all done by lunchtime.
