Hellooooo!  Well its been a while!  I keep taking photos of my food in preparation and then forget to take a photo once its cooked!  So not too many blogs from me. 

Anyways I have been busy all morning – I have made K’s Carrot and Onion Soup – https://kscookinginthekitchen.wordpress.com/2012/04/08/ks-carrot-onion-soup/  and prepared my dinner for tonight Pancetta and Spinach Chicken Roulade – which I will post later, and I made these superb cupcakes with my leftover ingredients.  (I also had spinach frittata on Friday and STILL have spinach leftover!).

I see these savoury cupcakes all the time but I visited Memoirs Of An Amateur Cook’s blog – and found this beautiful recipe – http://sarahsfoodieblog.wordpress.com/2012/04/20/chorizo-asparagus-and-cheddar-cupcakes/

These grabbed my attention because most savoury cupcakes have flour added but not these.  The recipe is on Sarahs blog – so go visit – the only difference was that I added leftover pancetta x 6 strips and leftover spinach 3 big handfuls and a third of a large onion instead of chorizo and asparagus.  I also omitted one egg so only added 5 – I dropped  my last egg! lol  Heres a photo once prepped!

And heres a close up so you can see the ingredients better

And here they are straight out the oven

And heres another close up – I now realise that I should have used large eggs and 6 of them!  Sarahs recipe did say fill to almost the top – but I didnt do that – When I took them out the oven I could see them deflating before my eyes! lol

These were the most tastiest savoury cupcakes ever and a pleasant change in texture.  I will defo make again and this was just using leftovers!  The minute they came out the oven myself and my family devoured them!  I would make them again and use in a summer picnic or banquet when having friends and family over. 

Thank you Sarah! x

I use up all foods in my house – its very rarely that anything has to be thrown away.  I add to dishes, I substitute, I invent, I make extra – I just love it!  So I thought I would include a section on my blog – to show you just what I do with leftover food. 

Here is my leftover food from Easter.  I simply added more croquettes and vegetables – and I got a dinner for 4 people out of it!  There was quite a large chunk of ham left!

This is was a simple one.  I could have added the ham to mac n cheese, or cut thick wedges and added a fried egg on top or pineapple,  I could have made a lasagna, frittata – the list is endless – but if you remember rightly – I was a tad hungover the next day so this was a quick meal for me! lol
