I recently heard the average person owns 15 cookbooks but rarely cooks more than 5-7 recipes all the time. I must admit I am a cookbook fiend and owns lots. So I thought I would embrace the challenge of cooking more recipes. One of my fears is making bread, as normally they turn out like bricks. If you have seen the film 'About a Boy', that loaf that he threw at the ducks was made by me. So I saw a recipe for Hazelnut and Apricot bread in the Good Housekeeping Institute vegetarian recipe cookbook and thought I would give it a go. I must admit my chappie gave me a hand with the kneading, as I only have very small hands. It seemed to work and the dough was like a creature when it was left to rise. It went sightly berserk. Encouraged by this I decided to try a recipe for stuffed focaccia and soda bread too. The kitchen was a frenzy...there was flour everywhere and our arms hurt from all the kneading. It was worth it though....here are results.

Right must dash...watching the 'Inbetweeners' before bed. Work is so hectic I need plenty of sleep otherwise I will be falling asleep at my desk. Dribbling on my keyboard is not a good look to have.
Till next time x
