The mad month of May

Wow – isn’t this year flying by?!

We’ve been busy with weddings, theatre trips, llama walking, eating out, seeing friends, enjoying the good weather.

So, I haven’t had much spare time for creating new recipes, but I thought I’d share a couple of links to fabulous recipes that I’ve been trying from other websites.

Beetroot and Brie Risotto

I’ve only just discovered the blog, A Girl Called Jack, but I’m hooked.  I also dashed out to my local library to borrow a copy of Jack’s book and I suggest you do the same.  This risotto has a fabulous colour and tasted amazing as well.

Rhubarb and Amaretti Crunch Cake

Rhubarb and Amaretti Crunch Cake

This cake was adapted from this recipe for Raspberry and Amaretti Crunch Cake.  It’s not the prettiest cake in the world, but the flavours are fantastic.  I roasted 450g of rhubarb and used that in place of the raspberry and I added a splash of almond extract to the cake mixture. I’ll definitely try this again in it’s original format too.
