Simple Rye Loaf

Slice Rye Bread

  Having recently been snowed in and running low on baking ingredients I decided that the long neglected bag of Rye flour I’d bought must get an airing. The first loaf I’d attempted was a long and drawn out recipe where you had to place the yeast, water and some rye flour in a warm …

Bacon-wrapped Salmon

Having had it drummed into me during Home Economics lessons that you should eat at least 2 portions of fish a week and one should be oily, I do try to stick to this! Hence I normally cook Salmon or Trout once a week and was running out of new ways to serve it. Then …

Happy New Year and Thank You …..
