CookBook Challenge April Update

Another month has gone and I am making good progress with my Cookbook Challenge. Having cooked over a quarter of the recipes in Lorraine Pascale's 'Home Cooking Made Easy', it is fast becoming one of my favourite recipe books. 

Here is what I have been cooking over the last month...

Speed: ** - roasting the squash takes some forward planning but it is fairly low effort
Taste: Delicious! Lorraine says that this is the recipe that converted her from a model to a chef. I must admit I was sceptical that a soup could do this, but this soup is heavenly! Its is seriously delicious and I cannot wait to make it again!
Repeat? Absolutely

Speed: Takes 6 hours! But 100% worth it and fairly low effort
Taste: Delicious - I love how cooking the meat for this long makes it literally just fall apart - no need for carving this meat - it just falls apart
Repeat? Yes - the only change I would make would be to add parsnips to the vegetables

Speed: ***
Taste: Delicious chocolatey taste, dense cake but light at the same time - my first flour free cake and I really enjoyed it!
Repeat? Yes 

Speed: *** This had a lot of components but it was fairly easy to make
Taste: Absolutely delicious! The mustard mash is perfect with the the apples and caramelised onions and rosemary pork - a delicious autumnal meal
Repeat? Yes

Speed: ***
Taste: Delicious - the combination of the lamb and herbs was divine - these are very flavoursome burgers. The buns were delicious too although they did not turn out floury and soft like the recipe, instead they were crusty - I am going to try the recipe again in my oven at home and see if they are softer!
Repeat? Yes

Speed: ** - Rising time
Taste: This was a yummy crusty bread that looks impressive due to its shape
Repeat? Probably

Have a great week

Love Rebecca
