Cooking and sewing, and anyone fancy a tute?


Has anybody tried this cook book. I thought I had enough cook books, but I was tempted by this one and I've been loving it. It's organised in a really kitchen friendly way, and works through cooking one thing, and then what you can do with the leftovers. It's particularly thrifty, and the recipes I've done so far have been delicious. We had this earlier in the week.


I've often made stew, but cooked in a roasting tin? Never. But it worked, and tasted delicious. Have to add that the dumplings were my addition - I'm not allowed to make a stew without dumplings as they are devoured in our home.

I've also been busy making little coin purses. These were fun to do...


and yacht ones as well


I also wanted to give you a peep at what I've been working on ...


It's a bit of a teaser of a picture, I know, but I was wondering whether anybody fancied a tutorial? If so, I'll try and sort one out, as it's a long time since I've done one.
