As much as i try to be a 50's domestic goddess the one thing that forever fails me is baking. I have strived to master this art but after several soggy cakes and inedible biscuits i either resorted to out of a packet solutions or shamefully bought cakes. This was until recently...
I began visiting relatives armed with a notebook and pen and writing down all the recipes that have been tried and tested and or are old favourites i now am well on the way to having a cookbook that is full of recipes i cant wait to try! This has given me the necessary gusto to attempt to be able to bake wonderful and delicious things that i know my better half will be excited to try.
With this in mind i decided to try to make a pie. He chose the recipe out of one of the books at his mums house which just happened to be by one (in fact two) of my fave chiefs, The Hairy Bikers!
These two lovelies always seem to make good, simple, hearty food and that my dears is just the ticket in my house!
Needless to say i did create a culinary masterpiece! Check it out a freshly made, locally sourced, chicken, ham and leek pie!
As you may well be able to tell i am extremely pleased with myself. This recipe was easy to understand and follow and turned out a tasty treat!
If your out and about and in the mood for picking up a new cookbook, i would recommend this book as there are so many yummy recipes in there i simply cant wait to get stuck into cooking up a storm!
